A s h Wednesday ! / Dust To Dust ! / Fasting.


Lent is to remind those who believe in Christ that we are mere dust and to dust we shall return.Christ said.” When you fast ,don’t look gloomy like the hypocrites,they neglect their appearances ,so that they may appear to others to be fasting.Amen ,l say to you they have received their reward.B u t when you fast ,anoint your head and wash your face ,so that you may not appear to be fasting ,except to your God the Father who is hidden .And your Heavenly Father who sees what is hidden will repay you .When you pray ,don’t be like the hypocrites who love to stand and pray on the street corners so that others may see them.Amen l say to you they have received their reward.But when you pray go to your inner room,close the door and pray to your God the Father in secret.And God who sees in secret will repay you.”((The Future Starts Today Not Tomorrow : Pope John Paul II )) Jalal Michael Sabbagh.http://gravatar.com/jmsabbagh86@gmail.com
