Ash Wednesday: A Journey of Spiritual Renewal

Ash Wednesday invites us to embark on a journey of spiritual renewal through the season of Lent that will lead us to Easter.

Traditionally, we will receive ashes and hear the words, “Repent and believe in the Gospel” or “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return”.

These words calls us to humbly reflect about who we are, a being created and loved by God. Our life journey on earth is just passing away and will end in dust. But, the Gospel always consoles and tells us something more of this journey in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Christ Jesus became one like us, went through death so that He can share with us the gift of a new-life, the Paschal Mystery. Lent helps us enter into this spiritual intimacy and renewal with Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

The season of Lent draws us into closer relationship and friendship with Jesus Christ. The Gospel reading on Ash Wednesday prescribes us about the spiritual exercises of almsgiving, prayer and fasting. These are not just external practices, but rather an interior journey of spiritual growth and renewal to be intimate with the God, who loves us unconditionally. Each one of us is also called to renew and share this spiritual gift with one another

Kingsmead Centre hopes to become your spiritual companion through this weekly reflection. One of spiritual directors or counselors will share weekly a reflection during this year Lent.

As we embark on this Lenten journey, what do I carry with me today? How is my relationship with Christ Jesus in my everyday living?
