Ash Wednesday

Asj WedmesdauAsh Wednesday begins the 40 day Lenten period ending with Holy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter).  It is usually a day of fast.

Ashes represent the mortality of humanity and the humility, sorrow and penitence.

Palm SundayAshes are often made form burning the palm fronds blessed on Palm Sunday of the previous year.  Mixed with oil or water, the ashes are used to make a cross or to sprinkle on the forehead of the faithful.


Lent Begins

Lenten rolls

Lent is a Catholic Christian 40 day period of fasting in remembrance of Christ's 

40 days in the wilderness.  As part of the fasting, some days (especially Fridays) Catholics do not eat any meat.

Many Christians will go on diets and simplify their lives using this as a way to become healthier not only spiritually but in their entire lifestyle.

Lent is also a season of repentance in which many Christians practice self-denial by giving up something - usually a bad habit such as smoking.  More time is spent in Christian growth.
