Ash Wednesday

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, which marked the beginning of the Lent season.

The priest said one of the following when applying the ashes over one’s forehead:

Remember, O man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return. (Genesis 3:19)

Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel. (Mark 1:15)

The message was clear: be reconciled to God, now.
