prayer diary Ash Wednesday 2017 – a day of Special observance, discipline, & self-denial

But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that your fasting may be seen not by others but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 
Matthew 6. 17,18

Reflection 
From the earliest days, Christians have observed Lent as a penitential season. It's 40 days echo Christ's own time in the wilderness. We, who are called to imitate Christ, must use this time to be ever more like him through the prayer, self-denial, and alms-giving that are the hallmarks of this season.
