We celebrate the start of the Lenten Season on February 17th with the celebration of Ash Wednesday. Ash is the powdery byproduct of something burned. The idiom “reduced to ashes” is used to mean that something has been destroyed or ruined. On Ash Wednesday, ashes remind us that we are pilgrims wandering through a dying world; they remind us of our mortality. The ashes mark our foreheads with the sign of the cross of Jesus Christ. If only the ashes and the cross they form would truly become external signs manifesting the interior reality of the love of the Lord burning within our hearts.
