Opening Prayer

Krizevac--Cross Mountain--Medjugorje
Grant, O Lord, that we may begin with holy fasting this campaign of Christian service,
so that, as we take up battle against spiritual evils, we may be armed with weapons of self-restraint. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. 

 --from the Roman Missal 
Opening Collect for Ash Wednesday

I like the new Roman Missal.
