Ash Wednesday

Feast and Festivities Add comments

Ash Wednesday marks the start to the Lenten season. This year, 2012, Ash Wednesday was celebrated last February 22. Like many Catholics around the globe, I was one of the faithful who went to the church to hear mass and to have our foreheads marked with ashes in the shape of a cross. The ash is a reminder to us that from ash we came, to ash will end.

Ash Wednesday though cannot be found in the Bible. Therefore, observing Ash Wednesday is not really an obligation. However, whether or not Ash Wednesday is a day of obligation, what is important is the reason why we celebrate the said day. Christians and other children of God are called to repent and to turn away from sins.

Believe me turning away from sin is not easy or simple as saying it. But, we can. Truly we can. We just have to pray hard.. harder.

Ciao! :)
