Turn away from sin and follow the Gospel

That’s frequently said by priests and others who administer ashes to the faithful on Ash Wednesday. Today is the beginning of Lent. What is Lent and what does it mean in 2020? What is sin? Everyone might have a different answer on that. How about lack of universal healthcare? That’s a sin. What about income inequality? What about endless war and inaction on climate change? Those are global sins we can all easily see. I’m challenged by Lent. What can I do to make a difference in the world around me? What can I give or give up that will change me and the world we live in? Agnus Dei qui tolli peccata mundi dona nobis pacem. Peace be with you and us all.
