Ash Wednesday: Quo Vadis?

In his essay on heaven, Peter Kreeft wrote wrote in this must-read article:

“Quo vadis?  Where are you going?  That’s the most important question for a traveler.  And we the living are all travelers. Death calls us all and moves us on. Stability is illusion. So those who cannot abide illusion must raise the question: Quo vadis?

“If heaven is not the answer to the question, our whole faith is false, and Jesus was a fool. If it is, then there’s nothing that is more important in the whole world. Indeed, the whole world is only heaven’s womb.”

Ash Wednesday is about this: Thou art dust and to dust thou shalt return.
