Lent is the Beginning of Change

 

As far as I could remember, every Ash Wednesday that has come and gone, the first thing people would usually ask is “Did you get your ashes yet?” It seemed like our whole existence as Catholics came down to the Lent season, and the showing that you are of a religious group. Now that Ash Wednesday has come to a close, we can finally focus on what’s really important during this Lent season–change.

Change

Change one of the key highlights for Lent. It is a time for us to reflect and accept who we are.  How far we have come and acknowledge the things that we did not do. The beauty of Lent is that you don’t have to be Catholic or christian to understand what it means and how it can make a person feel. Lent begins the 40 days prior to Easter and all Christians can appreciate the meaning and significance of these days.

Mortality

On Ash Wednesday, we are reminded that we came from dust, and to dust we shall return. It is a time that have to come to terms with our own mortality, and the sheer beauty of everyday we are given. Simply, we just have to live.

There is so much to say about this season and what it comes to mean to me and those around us.  In the next four posts (titles listed below) I have gone into detail of how Lent can change us.
