We have entered the season of Lent 2014 and Ash Wednesday was a very busy day here in the parish of Blessed Sacrament where I am doing my pastoral internship for seminary. It took us a few months to plan the services and masses that day, also who will help and what is going to take place at those services. Ash Wednesday was March 5th. I helped at the two masses at 7 AM and PM as lector and distribute Ashes. I lead two Liturgy of the Word with distribution of Ashes. Gave a small reflection. At the end of the day I was exhausted from all the work involved of ashes for the people. Life is busy here in the parish, but it was even busier that day. I pray my Lenten journey will be one of sacrifice and drawing closer to our Lord.
St. Charles Borromeo, Pray for us.
