Ash Wednesday

And now for some old school Lenten reflections.

This is the Collect for Ash Wednesday in Latin:

Concede nobis, Domine, praesidia militiae christianae
sanctis inchoare ieiuniis, ut, contra spiritales nequitias pugnaturi,
continentiae muniamur auxiliis.

Literal Translation:
Grant us, O Lord, to commence the defenses of the Christian field campaign by means of holy fasts, so that, we who are about to do battle against spiritual negligences, may be fortified by the support of continence.

I think the prayer speaks for itself.

Have a blessed Lent!ash-266x328
