Happy Ash Wednesday, y'all. . .the Lenten season has begun!

After the loud, rowdy celebration of Mardi Gras, today marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Each year, Catholics and other Christians observe the 40-day season of Lent as a time of spiritual preparation for the coming feast of Easter. This Lenten period of preparation has been observed since around the fourth century, with a special emphasis on fasting as a sign of repentance from sin. As in past centuries, we need spiritual renewal even today.



Quote:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the Western Christian calendar, Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days (forty days not counting Sundays) before Easter. 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.

Ash Wednesday gets its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. The ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year's Palm Sunday are burned. In the liturgical practice of some churches, the ashes are mixed with the Oil of the Catechumens (one of the sacred oils used to anoint those about to be baptized), though some churches use ordinary oil. This paste is used by the priest who presides at the service to make the sign of the cross, first upon his own forehead and then on each of those present who kneel before him at the altar rail. As he does so, he recites the words: "Remember (O man) that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
