Upon looking at my February calendar I noticed that Ash Wednesday is on Feb., 13th. Now I was raised as a RC & to that particular church Ash Wednesday is very significant. Traditionally a RC Priest puts ashes on your forehead as a reminder to you & all that.....Man you are dust & to dust you will return. Then that day ushers in the Lenten season. Ive always viewed it as a time for reflection, but knowing its man made, Ive had reservations about this as a traditional practice for a Christian....guess it causes me some conflict. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
