Today Is Ash Wednesday - Beginning Of Lent

Catholics all over the world celebrate ash wednesday today, the beginning of 40 days of prayers, fasting, abstinence and charity. The ash which is an integral part of the celebration reminds us that dust we come from and to dust we will return. The Church encourages all Catholics to carry out self mortifications during this period of Lent. Catholics are reminded to attend mass, fast and abstain from meat.
