I’m not a great Catholic; decent I’d say.  Decent enough to go to Ash Wednesday service after several months’ absence. Better late than never.   I was inspired by the sermon, which gave the congregation some perspective on Lent, including how to personally reflect over this time.  The sermon also touched on themes of forgiveness and selflessness. The sermon got …
