Remember that You are Dust and to Dust You Shall Return

Today marks the beginning of Lent–a season of fasting and prayer. It is Ash Wednesday and we received ashes on our foreheads to show that we are sinners and are looking to repent. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. The ashes come from the burnt palms from last year’s Palm Sunday.

Ash Wednesday begins about 40 days before Easter. We are asked to do 3 things during this Lenten season:

  • Fast
  • Pray
  • Give alms

Have a look at this video to get a quick overview of Lent and Ash Wednesday.
