Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of prayer, fasting and repentance. As the priest applies the ashes to a person’s forehead, he speaks the words: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. The ashes are made from blessed palm branches taken from the previous year’s palm Sunday Mass.
