Ash Wednesday – Whole Heart

As you made your Lenten resolutions, remember that Lent is not a self-improvement challenge. Our almsgiving and penance should reach out to the world. Giving up dessert is good, but do we pay a bit extra to buy food produced ecologically? Forgoing media is a great penance, but do we give the time we save to service? We read in the prophet Joel “Return to me with your whole heart.” Will you give your whole heart in best practices for the whole human family this Lent?
