President Biden Issues Statement On Ash Wednesday

Yesterday President Joe Biden issued a Statement on Ash Wednesday (full text), saying in part:

As we enter into the season of Lent, we know this moment of repentance, reflection, and renewal comes in the midst of a painful winter for our nation and the world.....

We pray for all those who have fallen on hard times and are worried about what morning will bring. Let us find strength in each other and faith that provides us purpose. And let us look with hope and anticipation toward Easter and brighter days ahead.
