Don’t be surprised by smudges on foreheads today. It’s Ash Wednesday, kicking off the first of 40 days of Lent. The statue of Mary above is found in the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, a surprising place for two reasons: this refuge is right in the heart of New York City’s Times Square and it’s an Episcopal church. Mary…not just for Catholics!
