Pope Francis led the traditional Ash Wednesday penitential procession from the church of St. Anselm on the Aventine Hill to the Basilica of St. Sabina where he celebrated Mass. Cardinals, archbishops, bishops, the Benedictine monks of St. Anselm, the Dominican fathers of Santa Sabina and the lay faithful joined him.

The newly unveiled fresco renovation at the Scala Santa. It took three years to do the two side staircases, this one was completed just over a month ago. The frescos look absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to see what they do to above the Holy Stairs. The scheduled reopening in January 2019. No doubt I’ll be one of the first there when they open. #rome #pilgrimage #scalasanta #travel #italy #catholic #lent #penance #art #fresco #bible #christian #renovationlife #arthistory #tradition #romancatholic #catholicism #jesus

Materialistic Pleasures Are Temporary: Lord Shiva was never attached to wealth. He neither wore gold ornaments nor expensive clothes. He was least bothered about material possessions as he was an enlightened soul who found happiness in real things.
Patience, Persistence And Calmness:  Shiva is a yogi. He sat and meditated for hours together. Patience, clarity of thought and wisdom are a product of a calm mind which is a result of meditation.
Suppress Negative Energy: Shiva is someone who had to consume poison and hold it inside him in spite of the pain. In fact, his name ‘neela-kantha’ signifies this act. The lesson here is to gain control over the negative side that exists in you with grace and power. In fact, this is a big lesson in anger management too.
Respect Women And Treat Them Equally:  Shiva treated his better half Parvathi as his equal. They lived like two souls in a single body. One of the names of lord Shiva is ‘ardha- nareeshwara’ and it signifies the concept that Shiva and shakthi are inseparable and eternal.
Perceive things clearly and simply:  The third eye of Shiva signifies vision that is beyond the ordinary. When you are able to look beyond what is evident you gain the power of superior perception.
Get rid of Ego:  A person who successfully controls his mind, intellect and ego is enlightened. The ‘trishul’ that Shiva holds signifies the same.
Attention, Focus And Concentration: The meditative poses of Shiva are a lesson in unwavering attention, focus and concentration. Such qualities can propel us forward and takes us places.
Nothing Is Permanent: Shiva smears ash on his forehead and body. Ash signifies death and rebirth. Nothing is permanent in this world; death and birth are inevitable. This simple realisation would free us from sorrow.
Physical Fitness: In fact, the best fitness activity would be the Tandav dance of Shiva. Being particular about fitness and health is the lesson here.

The words from Joel in today’s mass encourage us, especially in this Lenten season, to return to God. Whether through the sacraments, penance, or our interior life, He’s calling to you. “Even now, says the Lord,
Return to me with your whole heart
For I am gracious and merciful.” #cfm #celebratingourfaith

The Ember Days associated with Lent start today. All three days (Wed, Fri, Sat) are days of partial fast and partial abstinence, with Ember Friday being a day of full abstinence and partial fast.
.
.
The Ember Days, which were historically kept four times during the liturgical year, have a venerable history. Here is an explanation from Dom Gueranger (1860-70). .
 The fast of today is prescribed by a double law: it is Lent, and it is Ember Wednesday. It is the same with the Friday and Saturday of this week. There are two principal objects for the Ember days of this period of the year: the first is to offer up to God the season of spring, and, by fasting and prayer, to draw down His blessing upon it; the second is, to ask Him to enrich with His choicest graces the priests and sacred ministers who are to receive their Ordination this Saturday. .
Let us, therefore, have a great respect for these three days; and let those who violate, upon them, the laws of fasting or abstinence, know that they commit a twofold sin.

Lenten sketches - St. Elijah in the wilderness. I have a huge fondness for St. Elijah - he's a saint of fire. His passion, his zeal, his fervor, his burning love... And then this image. Elijah alone in the desert, seeking God, seeking death, seeking an answer. It's lent in a single image - the denial, the little deaths, the penances and disciplines... And then the raven. Breaking into his solitude, this small harbinger of mercy and sweetness, bearing bread to sustain, revive, satisfy. God won't be kept out, and His abundance is overbearing.

Sunday is always leg day. I did not feel like going to the gym this morning so I called to see when they closed. 8pm. I figured I'd go after 4. And at 5:30 I found myself doggin it so I went and changed to my gym clothes and went to my gym. Extensions, leg curls, rope squats, adductors, abductors, the glute press, standing calf raises, seated calf raises and 300 lbs again on the hack squat. Then 30 minutes on the rolling hills setting on the stair machine. #legday #hamstrings #glutes #calfs #forced #penance

Today, my name is bedlam, and I etch its letters aimlessly upon these calmest hues of sunset, the place where rust horizons lose their voices and resign to bruise-blue depths before they pass.

Tomorrow, I'll be violence in the dew that pearls on flower blooms to counterfeit a morning for the capsized glimpse of order that it feigns, some bastard jewel staining silver breaths of brand new moments all too understood. For every day my name is wicked written with the warmth and light, and every night I question if the moon might wash the strain away. But evening comes, and jade to fall like ether speaks with haste my name upon its teeth again to spell my sickness.

FIRST SUNDAY IN LENT 
INVOCABIT

This Sunday is called Invocabit, because the Introit of the Mass begins with this word, which is taken from the ninetieth psalm, wherein we are urged to confidence in God, who willingly hears the prayer of the penitent:

INTROIT He shall call upon me, and I will hear him; I will deliver him, and glorify him; I will fill him with length of days. (Ps. XC. 15-16.) He that dwelleth in the aid of the Most high shall abide under the protection of the God of heaven. (Ps. XC. 1.) Glory be to the Father, etc.

COLLECT O God who dost purify Thy Church by the yearly fast of Lent; grant to Thy household that what we strive to obtain from Thee by abstinence, by good works we may secure. Through our Lord, etc.

EPISTLE (II. Cor. VI. 1-10) Brethren, we exhort you that you receive not the grace of God in vain. For he saith: In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in the day of salvation have I helped thee. Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now, is the day of salvation. Giving no offence to any man, that our ministry be not blamed: but in all things let us exhibit ourselves as the ministers of God; in much patience, in tribulations, in necessities, in distresses, in stripes, in prisons, in seditions, in labors, in watchings, in fastings, in chastity, in knowledge, in long-suffering, in sweetness, in the Holy Ghost, in charity unfeigned, in the word of truth, in the power of God, by the armor of justice on the right hand, and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report, and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastised, and not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as needy, yet enriching many; as having nothing, and possessing all things.

EXPLANATION The Church very appropriately reads on this day this epistle of St. Paul, in which he exhorts the Christians to make use of the time of grace. A special time of grace is Lent, in which everything invites to conversion and penance, a time, therefore, in which God is ready to make rich bestowal of His graces. St. Anselm says, those do not use the grace who do not cooperate. Let us, therefore, follow...

“We solemnly offer Thee, O Lord, the sacrifice of the beginning of Lent, beseeching Thee, that by refraining from flesh at our meals, we may learn also to avoid sinful pleasures. Through our Lord.” -Secret Proper of the Mass, First Sunday of Lent

Gospel according to St. Mark 1,12-15.

Immediately the Spirit took him to the desert, where he was forty days and wastempted by Satan. He lived among the beasts, and the angels served him.

After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee. There he proclaimed the Good News of God, saying:

I am a perfectionist...I’m just not perfect. I strive to do everything perfectly, but that rarely, if ever, happens and I beat myself up for that. “I can’t believe I missed that question on the test. I’m so stupid. I’ll never amount to anything.” “Why did I say that earlier? That was so mean.” “How have I already messed up my Lenten penance? I need to get it together.” “I forgot to pray. Wow, I suck so much that I can’t even remember to pray. I can’t do anything right.” Sound familiar? I know it does for me. I’m constantly beating myself up over every little imperfection that I have. I convince myself that I’m unworthy of any love and I should not be forgiven. Really though, I’m just human. We all are. We are imperfect beings that are worthy of love and respect even though we fall every day. God loves us. If God can still love us in the midst of all of our failures, then why can’t we? This Lent I’m going to work on being less of a perfectionist. I want to accept my failures as teachings and remember that I’m trying, so I shouldn’t be so hard on myself.

“What if we were to interpret every privation we feel, physical or emotional, as a real opportunity for expressing concretely our longing for the Bridegroom?

To accept the cold, monotonous food however it is served, lack of comforts... In all these things and others we are saying in an effective way: “I long for the Bridegroom“

This is what “fasting“ must be-The outward sign of a heart utterly sincere in it’s desire for God. Fasting from our own self-will, self-seeking – these are the practical ways in which we express our desire to be all for him.

To refrain from complaining or grumbling , to think nothing of anything that crosses us, is an expression of our longing for the Bridegroom – and one that captivates him.”

To refrain from complaining or grumbling , to think nothing of anything that crosses us, is an expression of our longing for the Bridegroom – and one that captivates him.”#ruthburrows #lent #prayer #penance #fasting
Let the church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven. — Pope Francis
