Crushed (Lent 2022)

Ash Wednesday & Sundays in Lent

For 1400 years the Church has set aside the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter as a time of repentance and renewal. Believers humbly acknowledge that sin is the ultimate source of all the crushing moments in life.

But Jesus has crushed sin, death, and the devil. Now with the psalmist we can say, “The Lord saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
