Ash Wednesday

God of mercy and compassion, you are always at work to save us, but in this season you offer your generous grace in a special way to all your people through the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which we prepare to celebrate in full at Easter. Look kindly on all those you have chosen, both those preparing for baptism and those already baptized, and renew us by the power of the Gospel, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer from Magnificat—U.S. Edition, Morning Prayer, Wednesday, March 2, 2022.
