Ash Wednesday and the War of Defense

Prayer after the blessing of the penitent with ashes, from today's Mass:

Grant us, Lord, the grace to begin the Christian's war of defense with foly fasts: that, as we do battle with the spirits of evil, we may be protected by the help of self-denial. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

May all readers have a blessed, holy, and spiritually profitable Lent.

There is still opportunity to assist at Mass and receive the blessed ashes at St. Francis de Sales Oratory at 12:15 pm (Low Mass) and 6:30 pm (Solemn High Mass) today.
