Ash Wenesday Celebration

The day began with the morning prayers prayed together in the Chapel of the Curia. At 10am the community gathered to pray the Psalms of the afternoon. Br, Mimo, a student in the college who is studying Sacred Liturgy preached a recollection to Curia community. He explained the importance of the Lent season, how one can experience the love and mercy of God during this season of lent. He quoted many fathers of the church while explaining how to search for God who is the first one who searches us. He said the Orthodox Church has one sunday dedicated in the Lenten season as "Sunday of Desire" quoting Zacchus who desired and longed for the Lord in his life.
In the evening the community joined the College for the Eucharistic celebration which was presided by the Rector of the College who preached about the significance of the Ashes in human life.
Now we are all praying and awaiting for the good news of  a New Pope before Easter. Let us storm heavens for a leader who will follow the path of Jesus and also continue the good work of Pope Benedict.
