Scripture - Matthew 26:26-28
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins."

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent which prepares us for Holy Week and the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. Lent is a time of fasting and prayer that leads to a spiritual renewal of our soul.

"Please join in prayer for God's divine intervention to mitigate (end) violence throughout the world. It’s important now more than ever to pray for our nation and families, especially for people who are subjected to adversity and disrespectful behavior on a daily bases. Our world is in dire need of healing and peace - with prayer everything is possible." -Loci B. Lenar
