Ash Wednesday

Trinity observed Ash Wednesday today.  We join Christians around the world to mark the beginning of Lent’s baptismal preparation for Easter. On this day, we receive an ashen cross on the forehead (a gesture rooted in baptism), hear the solemn proclamation to prepare for Easter and contemplate anew the ongoing meaning of baptismal initiation into the Lord’s death and resurrection. While marked with the ashes of human mortality, the church hears God’s promise of forgiveness and tastes God’s mercy in the bread of life and the cup of salvation. From this solemn day, the church goes forth on its journey to the great baptismal feast of Easter.
