Dust and Ashes

Lord, you are merciful to all, and hate nothing you have created. You overlook the sins of men to bring them to repentance. You are the Lord our God. 
(Wisdom 11:24, 25, 27)

Let us pray:
Father in heaven,
the light of your truth bestows sight
to the darkness of sinful eyes.
May this season of repentance
bring us the blessing of your forgiveness
and the gift of your light.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. 

(from the entrance antiphon and alternate opening prayer for the Mass of Ash Wednesday)

Thank you, Sister; please, never stop reminding us! Christ eagerly awaits our return to righteousness. (Joel,2:12-18 paraphrased)
