I mean, I know it's probably not good, what I'm about to say, but, well, that never stopped me before.
What's up with people and ashes?
We must have had thousands of people come through our church today for ashes since it's Ash Wednesday. If I wasn't taking a CCD class to Mass tonight, I would never have gone to Mass. I hate Ash Wednesday.
Hate is a strong word. And I don't have a problem with the day. I think it's great, actually. What I dislike is people coming in the church door for ashes and then not coming back until next Ash Wednesday.
Is it because we're giving something away?
Well, guess what, folks? We give Jesus away at every Mass. And He's way better than ashes.
