The Holy Day of Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of fasting, prayer, self-denial, and repentance of past wrongdoings. The Day of Ashes marks the beginning of the penitential Lenten season. Many Christians attend special church services and read scriptures on Ash Wednesday.

This year’s Ash Wednesday is March 2, 2022. Our Catholic Church enters the season of Holy Lent started with Ash Wednesday. We begin each Lent with a stirring call a repentance and a reminder of our mortality. The blessed ashes are “imposed’ on our foreheads with the shapes of the cross today as a sign of conversion, penance, fasting and human mortality. May God bring us to a deeper relationship with Him and one another in this time of Holy Lent by praying, fasting, and almsgiving.

Friday of the Fifth Week of Lent

Reading: Jer 20:10-13

I hear the whisperings of many:
“Terror on every side!
Denounce! let us denounce him!”
All those who were my friends
are on the watch for any misstep of mine.
“Perhaps he will be trapped; then we can prevail,
and take our vengeance on him.”
But the LORD is with me, like a mighty champion:
my persecutors will stumble, they will not triumph.
In their failure they will be put to utter shame,
to lasting, unforgettable confusion.
O LORD of hosts, you who test the just,
who probe mind and heart,
Let me witness the vengeance you take on them,
for to you, I have entrusted my cause.
Sing to the LORD,
praise the LORD,
For he has rescued the life of the poor
