Lent: Journey of Reconciliation
By Adriana Calzada, CCVI
The liturgy of Ash Wednesday: God calls the people to repentance
Even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the LORD, your God.
For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and
relenting in punishment.
Perhaps he will again relent and leave behind him a blessing, Offerings and
libations for the LORD, your God.
The Season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday
“REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE DUST AND UNTO DUST YOU WILL RETURN.” (Gen. 3:19)
