Homily 2018 02 14 Ash Wed Take 2 Friendship with Jesus or Nothing

Wow. Something really wound me up before the 2nd Mass this Ash Wednesday. So, O.K., here’s take number two on Lent being about friendship with Jesus or nothing.

    I didn’t pick up on that. It is Ash Wednesday, for cryin’ out loud. Or maybe I am used to Priests being “wound up” on Ash Wednesday – something about a church overflowing with “prodigals” (in name only) on the one day of the year that their Godless friends will “call them out” if there are no ashes to be found on the forehead. These “prodigals” will do anything, even go to Mass, to avoid the notice of their faithless fellows.
    No “alleluias” or the Gloria during Lenten Masses. I remember the first time I wept during Easter Mass because We were able, once again, to sing the Gloria, and Alleluia! Like Advent leading to Christmas, The better you observe Lent, the better an Easter you will have.
