HAPPY LENT: [6:44] – Also, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump issued an Ash Wednesday message and offered prayers for everyone observing Lent.
“Today, millions of Christians will be marked on their foreheads with the sign of the cross. The imposition of ashes is an invitation to spend time during Lent fasting, praying, and engaging in acts of charity.
“This powerful and sacred tradition reminds us of our shared mortality, Christ’s saving love, and the need to repent and accept the Gospel more fully.
“May you grow closer to God in your faith during this blessed season.”
