So I’m not sure what one says when they want to wish people a rewarding Lenten season…  Happy Lent? Merry Lent?  Somber Lent?  How about this prayer from the Book of Common Prayer for Ash Wednesday:

Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou
hast made and dost forgive the sins of all those who are
penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that
we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our
wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy,
perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our
Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
