Ash Wednesday

You are made of dust and to dust you will return. Remember your penance, prayer, and almsgiving. The Lord is not pleased with the sins of man, and Mother Mary weeps.

Men of good will not of the Christian faith are welcome to join us in giving to the poor, and practicing a season of temperance.

If Nineveh, seat of the most sadistic and bloody tyrants of the Bronze Age, can be spared the wrath of the Lord at the warning of Jonah, through the sincerity of her fasting and repentance, let our cities do likewise, and hope for mercy as generous.
