‘My ears had heard of You, but now my eyes have seen You;
therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.’
( Job 42, verses 5 & 6 )

‘Grant that these ashes may be for us a sign of our penitence
and a symbol of our mortality;
for it is by Your grace alone that we receive  eternal life in Jesus Christ, our Saviour.’

Ash Wednesday ushers in the penitential season of Lent in which we remember how Jesus fasted for forty days and forty nights in the wilderness and was tempted by the devil.

‘Jesus said:
“Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.”
Then the devil left Him,
and angels came and ministered to Him.’

( St Matthew 4, vv.10 & 11)
