the whole world's come undone

his right thumb traces the pattern across my forehead as he murmers "remember that you have come from ashes and will return to ashes. be free from sin, live in christ."

randomly i went to the mass they held in the basement of our residence building for ash wednesday this evening. i'm not a particularly religious person, but i have a lot of faith. i enjoy mass, and there's always something very comforting in the tradition of something as old as it is.

i have to say though that i began to question said faith a bit when the homily for the evening was based entirely around bacon fat.
