For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Psalm 51:16-17

Today is Ash Wednesday, when we are “marked by Christ, the Crucified” with an ash cross on our foreheads and remember that “we are dust, and to dust we shall return.

It also marks the beginning of our Lenten journey.

We do all this in solemn reflection on our sins, His cross, and our forgiveness through faith in Him. But it’s important for us to know that we also do this in the same way He did His life and sacrificein LOVE!
