“Ash Wednesday is the Wednesday of the seventh week before Easter and the first day of Lent. The day is named for the practice of imposing ashes, a practice that many Lutheran congregations have found to be a very meaningful part of the Ash Wednesday liturgy. Using ashes as a sign of repentance is an ancient practice, often mentioned in the Bible (e.g., Jonah 3:5-9; Job 42:6; Jeremiah 6:26; Matthew 11:21). The early Christians adopted the use of ashes from Jewish practice as an external mark of penitence. “

“So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes...” – Daniel 9:3

    I didn’t have any expectations concerning that name, but the more I was amazed.
    The author did a great job. I spent a couple of minutes reading and assessing the facts.
    Everything is crystal clear and understandable. This one is of this type.
    Moreover, I like how the writer organized his
    thoughts in addition to the visual component.
