It's a simple phrase, and yet it has the power to change our lives and renew our hearts.  What began on Ash Wednesday continues now with full power: we repent of our sins and turn to the Lord with open hearts that God's grace might renew us and make us whole.

The ashes on our foreheads invite us to repent of the sins that keep us from God and one another.  Through fasting, prayer and almsgiving we have powerful tools that can open our hearts and transform our lives in this great season of Lent.

As we embark on this season of Lent we hear the words as we receive our ashes: "Repent, and believe in the Gospel."  May we turn away from sin and look to Christ for the grace we need each day.

Ashes are common in our daily life - every fire leads to them.  But note these two qualities:

  • They are dirty
  • They are lifeless

Welcome to the reality of sin: The ashes we wear are an outward sign that we wish to turn away from all that soils our souls and harms our hearts.  May the words we hear today help us to seek the cleansing life that comes from Christ.  The words are clear:

Repent, and Believe in the Gospel

The messy, dirty, grimy ashes on the outside remind us of the messy, dirty, grimy reality of sin in our hearts.  As we repent and believe in the Gospel, may we call upon the Lord to wash us clean with the grace of Jesus Christ.
