What is Lent?

The six weeks before Easter is called the "Lenten Season".  It is a time to focus on the suffering, death and resurrection of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.  Because Jesus died, and thus piad for our sins, we have life.  Because Jesus rose from the dead, we too will rise and enjoy heaven forever.  LENT is a process of prayer and spiritual renewal.  The Lenten season emphasizes one's need to cultivate the interior life through self-reflection, fasting, alms giving and prayer.

Ash Wednesday is the day Lent begins.  It is called that because, being 40 days before Good Friday, it always falls on a Wednesday and on that day at church the faithful have their foreheads marked with ashes in the shape of a cross.  In the Bible, a mark on the forehead is a symbol of a person's ownership.  By having their foreheads mared with the sign of a cross, this symbolizes that the person belongs to Jesus Christ, who did on a Cross.  This is in imitation of the spiritual mark or seal that is put on a Christian in baptism.

Ashes are a biblical symbol of mourning and penance.  In Bible times, the custom was to fast, wear sackcloth, sit in dust and ashes, and put dust and ashes on one`s head.  They also symbolize death and so remind us of our mortality.  Thus when a priest uses her or his thumb to sign one of the faithful with ashes, the priest says, ``Remember, that you are dust and to dust you shall return.`` 

The ashes are made by burning palm fronds which have been saved from previous years Palm Sunday, they are then blessed by a priest - blessed ashes having been used in God's rituals since the time of Moses (Numbers 19:9-10,17)  (From Saint Matthew's Anglican Church, Abbotsford, BC)
