Latest Updates

We are reduced, O Lord, beyond any other nation,
   brought low everywhere in the world this day because of our sins.
We have in our day no prince, prophet, or leader,
   no holocaust, sacrifice, oblation, or incense,
   no place to offer first fruits, to find favor with you.
But with contrite heart and humble spirit let us be received.
      – Daniel 3
