“What brought you to mass today,” I inquired? “The ashes,” they responded in unison! In this podcast, Tony recalls an encounter with four Non-Catholic college students at Ash Wednesday mass. In this podcast, Tony explains the power in those ashes.

Scripture: Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. –2 Corinthians 6:2 NAB
