We are celebrating Ash Wednesday in our School by getting the ashes of last years palms on our foreheads. This happens 46 days before Easter Sunday. We get the ashes as a sign of repentance or to say we are sorry.
We were talking about what the priest or teacher says when they put the ashes on the forehead,
Remember, O man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return.
Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.
These are phrases from the Bible and remind us that we are sorry.
