Ash Wednesday & the Beginning of Lent

Posted by Hallee on Mar 9, 2011 in Christian Faith, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, holiness, inspiration, Life

Ash Wednesday comes from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. Traditionally, the ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with oil. In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day for contemplating one’s transgressions. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent.
