Ash Wednesday & Aquinas

I wish every day were Ash Wednesday; probably the one day it’s acceptable to have a dirty face!  People across Aquinas are starting to begin their Lenten sacrifices or supplements.  If you don’t know, the season of Lent allows Christians some preparation time before the celebration of Easter.  About 40 days before, Ash Wednesday is meant as a sign of humility by intentionally placing ashes on foreheads.  Despite its humble intentions, it is always fun to compare ashes with other friends: some marks are huge, puny, and some are just blobs!  Although Lent is a time to contemplate, a few friends and I are already looking forward to Easter.  You see, Aquinas partners with an awesome church in New Orleans called St. Peter Claver.  Four of us Saints miss them so much, that naturally we felt called to visit the parish on Easter Sunday!  I am so thankful that Aquinas gives us these wonderful opportunities like connections with places all across the US.  Happy Lent, bloggers!  Stay warm!
