My Ash Wednesday Sermon

My Sermon for Ash Wednesday has 3 parts: base on a Catechism Question from the “good old days” BALTIMORE CATECHISM.

Q: Why does the Church command us to fast and to abstain?


A: The Church commands us to fast and to abstain in order that we may control the desires of the flesh, raise our minds more freely to God, and make satisfaction for sin.
