Wednesday, Feb. 22 was Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent — a good time for reflection and consciousness raising. A must-see is the magnificent painting of the face of the suffering Christ, painted by a local fine artist. It is on the altar of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on Lincoln Way in Auburn. We are so blessed to live in America and not face the real suffering in so much of our world today. It is almost hard to believe, in this day of modernity, that some of the horrors we see on the nightly news could still be happening in the 21st century. As it was once said, evil can only exist when good people do nothing. CAROL WALLGREN, Auburn
