Below are Readings for Year B with a commentary on the Gospel verses:

Readings for Ash Wednesday

Exegesis on the Gospel reading for Ash Wednesday (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21; Matthew Henry)

For Christians, this is our principal spiritual time of the year. These 40 days often include prayer and fasting as well as almsgiving:

I wish those who observe it a good Lent, one of profound prayer and spiritual reflection.
