WALKING TOWARDS EASTER
Way of the Cross…. which St. Vincent prayed
MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS
FOR LENT 2020
Out of Ashes
Fire in the forest leaves us ashes.
Ashes lie smoking on the ground.
All the old and dead wood lie in ashes,
But don’t be sad; don’t let it bring you down.
For in the ashes new seeds are sown.
From the ashes new life will grow.
Leave the past in ashes;
Let the old things give way.
Start a fresh new life right here today.
In the ashes, From the ashes, Out of ashes.
Now we leave our feelings far behind us.
Leave them in the forest fire to burn.
All that’s left behind is cold grey ashes.
And in the ashes now to God we turn.
- Michael Mangan
