    Ash Wednesday....

    Advertisement



    In the Western Christian calendar, Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and occurs forty days before Easter (excluding Sundays).
    It falls on a different date each year, because it is dependent on the date of Easter; it can occur as early as February 4 or as late as March 10.

    At Masses and services of worship on this day, ashes are imposed on the foreheads (or tonsure spots, in the case of some clergy) of the faithful.
    The priest, minister, or in some cases officiating layperson marks the forehead of each participant with black ashes in the shape of a cross,
    which the worshiper traditionally retains until washing it off after sundown.
    The act echoes the ancient Near Eastern tradition of throwing ash over one's head to signify repentance before God (as related in the Bible).
    The priest or minister says one of the following when applying the ashes:

    Remember, O man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return. (Latin: Memento homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.)

    Genesis 3:19
    Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.

    Mark 1:15
    Repent, and hear the good news.




    What are you giving up!???

    I'll probably give up something I want to quit so that I can achieve two goals at the same time.

    Used to give up chocolate during lent, went to mass each morning which was great cause could be late for school.

    Don't think we should discuss religion or poltics in here. We need to solve world problems and don't anyone mention my drinking!!!!!
