Ambassadors for Christ. Biblical Reflection for Ash Wednesday Year C By Father Thomas Rosica, CSB
TORONTO, FEB. 16, 2010 (Zenit.org).- Ash Wednesday makes one's faith very visible and public. Not offensively -- but also not easy to miss -- the sign of our faith shows up in the office, at school, on buses and subways, in lines at the grocery store, or at the gas station. This small symbol of the cross of ashes on our foreheads expresses an important truth: Faith doesn't happen only at church, but lives among us, in public, every day.
