Ash Wednesday is a powerful visual reminder of an inescapable truth: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
If ashes are not your style, take a moment today to listen to the sobering testimony of your aching joints, withering muscles, and failing eyes. Indeed, we are dust. There are no exceptions.
Thank God, through Christ, our dust one day will be transformed, and the mortal will put on immortality.
