The first of the forty days of Lent, named for the custom of placing blessed ashes on the foreheads of worshipers at Ash Wednesday services. The ashes are a sign of penitence and a reminder of mortality, and may be imposed with the sign of the cross. Ash Wednesday is observed as a fast in the church year of the Episcopal Church.

  1. I have grown up Catholic, so good thing I remembered to go get my ashes today! It is kind of funny walking around a college campus with ashes on your forehead because people have a tendency to give you weird looks.
    Also, I noticed that you followed my old blog, so thank you for that! However, I have relocated to and I would love if you would re-subscribe to me there! Thank you in advance and I look forward to reading more of your content!
