larger font

Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh, celebrated Mass and distributed ashes to the faithful on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, at Sacred Heart Cathedral. In his homily, the Bishop suggested making these words from the Psalms a daily Lenten prayer:

“A pure heart create for me, O God. Put a steadfast spirit within me.” He also encouraged the faithful to “celebrate God’s infinite mercy and forgiveness at the beginning of this season in the Sacrament of Penance.”
