I find it odd this year that Ash Wednesday falls on February 14. Go figure! Valentine’s Day & Ash Wednesday occupying the same space on your calendar. What color do you make that space - a joyous pink or a dismal gray (remembering that to dust we shall return at death)? On second thought, maybe they fit well, when you consider that out of love God sent to earth a Valentine like no other - His own dear Son to become by His own death the antidote for both sin & death. What wondrous love is this to consider on your Lenten journey.
