Let us pray:
Almighty and ever-living God, you hate nothing you have made, and you forgive the sins of all who are penitent. Create in us new and honest hearts, so that, truly repenting of our sins, we may receive from you, the God of all mercy, full par- don and forgiveness through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
It is time to prepare for the celebration of Christ’s death and resurrection, and realize the transforming power of a Lenten Pilgrimage.
It is time to walk, receive our ashes, meditate and search for God ́s will, find grace after repentance and rediscover the value of conversion as a permanent returning to God as the source of life and salvation.
