Ash Wednesday – March 1, 2017

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, which begins the forty days of Lent. This is one of the special spiritual periods in the Liturgical year of the Church, which is meant to remind us of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, the ultimate sacrifice that brought us our salvation.
This sacred time calls us to prayer, fasting and almsgiving (That is charity or love). It begins with the imposition of ashes on the foreheads of the believers as a reminder that we come from God out of nothing and to God we shall return, if we keep to His will and commandments. May the blessings of Lent come and dwell upon us all, Amen! In Christ,
Father Uche Obikwe
