The Meanings of Penance

Ash Wednesday 2017

Ash Wednesday begins the forty days of Lenten practice.  Penance is the virtue which motivates the faithful to receive the same named sacrament and do the works of that virtue, namely prayer, fasting & almsgiving.  The sacramental of the ashes gives the strength to do this.  Also in this sermon, we are given suggested ways of practicing Lenten penances.
