Litratong Pinoy #76: Mantsa (Speck/Stain)

ash

If on Valentine's Day, we wear our hearts on our sleeves, on Ash Wednesday, we wear our faith on our foreheads. It's a solemn reminder of how fleeting life is on this earth and that one day, we all will become part of the earth.

If this Lenten ritual should have a theme song, I believe it ought to be "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas.

Thank heavens for these shades that hid the "dust in my eyes." Please excuse me while I contemplate the best treatment for acne.




Masdan ang "mantsa" ng ating pananampalataya.

Narining ko nga estudyante kagabi sa dorm nagsabi na "ash wednesday" and she forgot to go to her church. She went to church though here in our campus to attend the midweek prayer meeting.

Nice photo for the theme!
