Let us Talk about Lent Week 1

Week 1

This is our weekly Lenten reflection/talk.  Today we talk about death and mercy.

Opening Prayer

Let us change our garments to sackcloth and ashes, let us fast and weep before the Lord, that our God, rich in mercy, might forgive us our sins.

Closing Prayer

Let us correct our faults which we have committed in ignorance, let us not be taken unaware by the day of our death, looking in vain for leisure to repent. Hear us, O Lord, and show us your mercy, for we have sinned against you.
