Ash Wednesday in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem

“Come back to me with all your heart, with fasting, crying and moaning. Tear your hearts and not your garments, return to the Lord your God”, quotes the book of the prophet Joel, reading from the Ash Wednesday Mass. And in the Psalm, we hear: “Mercy, O Lord, for we have sinned”.

Franciscans, pilgrims and local Christians gathered around the empty tomb of Christ in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem to celebrate the beginning of Lent, a time of fasting, penance and prayer.
