An unforgettable Ash Wednesday...


...the team serving lunches to homeless people in London met as usual at Farm Street...and after the fish pie (the meals are provided by local hotels, in generous quantities, and of a very high standard) we did the usual extensive  cleaning and washing-up etc ...and then, socially spaced as required by the regulations, gathered  and Fr Dominic, in alb and stole, blessed and distributed the ashes, sprinkling them on our assorted heads, with all the traditional Scripture readings and union with all the Ash Wednesdays down the years and across the world....and it was one of the most moving and powerful I've known.
