Ash Wednesday: The first day of Lent occurring forty-six days before Easter. Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a sign of repentance. Lent is a period observed, primarily by Roman Catholics, with fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance.
Reflection: Remember you are dust and to dust you will return. (Genesis 3:19) - Stated at Ash Wednesday services as a cross of ash is placed on the forehead.
