Lent Day 2: Boldly sign the ash cross on the doors of the Church, on the pristine vestments and clerical collars, for repentance from the horrible sins committed by the institutional Church. For the Inquisition; for so called “holy wars” for executions; for persecutions; for sexual abuse; for missionaries who forced Christianity on other cultures; for pious kneeling rather than helping others to stand; for praying in place of doing; for superstitions in place of reason; for other worldly focus (Heaven & Hell) rather than the needs of this world; for blessing water rather than giving water to the thirsty; for consecrating bread rather than feeding the hungry. May the baptismal fonts overflow and cleanse the church of its grievous sins
