Ash Wednesday Art

Today is Ash Wednesday. Today we transition into the season of Lent which will lead us all the way to Holy Week and Easter in late March.

The Gospel text for today is Matthew 6. Here's the link.

Here's a collection of images from the public domain section of The Met. May they me a visual meditation as you discern how best to honor the season of Lent on your personal spiritual journey.
