Remember man that thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return.
I won’t be attending the opening night of Mel Gibson’s movie. I’ll be in church. It’s Ash Wednesday.
I wonder if he’s going to miss the opening of his own movie? Or maybe his branch of the church doesn’t observe that tradition? Couldn’t be that he’s be encouraging people to skip out on a service just to go to a movie…
In looking around for Ash Wednesday info, I found this poem by T.S. Eliot. It’s got nothing to do with this post, but so what?
Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated
And let my cry come unto Thee.
