God of all times and places, ashes mark our foreheads; in a smudged sign of the cross, we are public Christians. We hope these forty days will help us to be ready for the times when we will struggle in our prayer. "Now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation." Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
