                                         ASH WEDNESDAY
                                       Traditional Latin Mass at 5:30 P.M.
                                       St. Martha Catholic Church Enfield Ct.
From The Liturgical Year Abbot Gueranger volume 4 page 202

Yesterday, the world was busy in it`s pleasures, and the very children of God were taking a joyous farewell to mirth: but this morning all is changed. The solemn announcement, spoken of by the prophet, has been proclaimed in Sion ,( see the epistle of to-day`s Mass)
the solemn fast of Lent, the season of expiation, the approach of the great anniversaries of our Redemption. Let us, then rouse ourselves, and prepare for the spiritual combat.
