Today, Ash Wednesday, the Church prayed this prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours from morning to evening.

Support us, Lord, as with this Lenten fast we begin our Christian warfare, so that in doing battle against the spirit of evil we may be armed with the weapon of self-denial. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.


Prayer from Ash Wednesday Liturgy of the Hours

A blessed Lent to all as we prepare ourselves to rise with Christ at Easter. Repent and believe in the gospel (Mk. 1:15).
