Remember, O man, that you are dust...

and to dust you shall return.

Grant to your faithful, Lord, a spirit generous enough to begin these solemn fasts with proper fervor and to pursue them with steadfast devotion. This we ask of you through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son. ~ from Catholic Culture


  1. While receiving my ashes yesterday, I almost thought that Father said to me, "Remember ma'am that you are dust..."


  2. So he was a very polite young priest? :)


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
