No One Left Early On Ash Wednesday

19 Feb

Except for two NYC Sanitation Workers who had to be on a route in Queens West District 6, the Church, Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs Roman Catholic Church at Ascan Avenue & Queens Blvd in Forest Hills, Queens, was Standing Room Only. I was there and it was a tight squeeze.
The 1st Reading spoke of People being called by the High Priests for Penance.
St. Paul To The Corinthians tells of People being encouraged to do Good.
The Gospel According to Saint Mark is also a cry from Christ in that when one prays and fasts, don’t be like the hypocrites. Be Humble was this Penitential Message. In short, don’t be a Show off. A more blunt was of saying it is “Don’t Be a Schmuck.”

It was a good start to Lent.

Kyrie Elaison!

M. eh!
