The Inner Life February 17th – Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday. Did you know that Ash Wednesday Mass is one the most attended Masses each year? It is an encouraging sign but also an interesting one considering it is not a Holy Day of Obligation. Father John Girotti joins Chuck Neff to discuss why Ash Wednesday Mass is one of the most popular Masses to attend each year.
