Ash Wed. in the Monastery 2013

Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

What a wonderful way to look at life. We were made by God and we will return to God.
We have a practice of taking an inventory of our cells, on Ash Wed. This allows us to clear out what we don't need and what has accumulated over the years. Having moved around a lot growing up, I never have stayed in one place for longer than 4 I have been in the same room for 11 years. I never thought that things could multiply so fast...  
Doing this helps us also to take inventory of our interior life.

How are we going to grow closer to Christ this Lent.
