Ash Wednesday 2024

Ash Wednesday is a solemn reminder of human mortality and the need for reconciliation with God and marks the beginning of the penitential Lenten season.

It marks the start of the Lenten period leading up to Easter, when Jesus was resurrected. The ashes symbolize both death and repentance. During this period, we show repentance and mourning for our sins, because Christ died for them.

Ash Wednesday marks the start of a 40-day period. This period can be a reference to the story of Jesus, who went into the desert for 40 days to fast and pray and was tempted by Satan.

Read Matthew 4:1–11, Mark 1:12–13, and Luke 4:1–13.
