Repent! Remember, man, that thou art dust
— Valentine’s Day? Arizona Statehood Day? Any other year, that’s how we might refer to February 14. This year, however, February 14 is, first and foremost, Ash Wednesday. Unlike last year, this year I managed to get a forehead selfie before I smudged ashes all over my shirt sleeve. I like to get a jump on my Lenten repentance, so I arrived at Mater Misericordiae Mission in Phoenix at 6:05 this morning to get in line for confession.
