Ash Wednesday - The Beginning of the Camino Del Rey

The walk of our King to Calvary begins today.   Will you join me in the Camino del Rey?  (Walk of the King.)  Each day as we walk this journey to the Cross, we strive to grow closer to God.  We walk the path that Jesus walked.  We grow closer to Him through prayer, fasting, and alms giving.  We seek Him in our joys, pain, and sorrows.  We strive to keep Him in our sight through each moment in life.  Let us walk the Camino with Jesus.  Let us open our hearts and walk in joy towards the cross.

Let us begin our Camino by holding a crucifix in our hands.  See Our Jesus as he hangs bleeding, naked, and cold on His Cross, held only by nails driven into His Hands and Feet. See the cross which He embraces, this instrument of torture and disgrace, which is the sign of our salvation.  Remember that He, who is the King of Kings, lowered Himself and willingly accepted all sufferings for the redemption of sin.  He, who is Love embodied, loved His His sisters and brothers, so much that He willingly and full of love, accepted His Father’s Will that He be tormented, tortured, and killed by those whom He came to save.  He who was the fulfillment of the covenant the Father made with the chosen people, gave His life that all might live eternally with Him in heaven.
