Ash Wednesday

 

Ash Wednesday begins the season of the Church Year known as Lent, which begins forty days (plus Sundays) prior to Easter and is characterized by a focus on penitence, fasting, prayer and works of charity. This first day of Lent reminds Christians of the words of Jesus in Mathew 16:24 - "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow me daily.” As the first step in this Lenten journey the Ash Wednesday service invites us to acknowledge our mortality, our sinfulness, and our dependence upon the grace of God as we journey towards Easter together.

Because the use of ashes as a physical sign of repentance is found throughout the Bible. A unique feature of this service is the marking of the forehead with ashes in the sign of the cross. Since the 10th century, the Church has used this practice to symbolize the frailty of our human existence and to remind us of the ‘dust and debris’ in our lives (hence the name Ash Wednesday.) As you come forward for the imposition of ashes, the minister will recite the words of Genesis 3:19 – "You are dust, and to dust you shall return."

This Month's Ministry Partner
