Ash Wednesday Blessing



Bless this day of ashes,

this space,

this pause.


May we be open,

May we be honest,

May we be mindful.


May we be patient,

May we be quiet,

May we be gentle.


Facing fear,

Facing sorrow,

Facing joy,

Facing pain.


This life is yours.

This life is a gift.

We return it to you.


Bless this day of ashes,

this space,

this pause.
