Remember that you are dust....
Ever since I was a young boy I can remember having a particular fondness for Ash Wednesday. It was not that I really knew what was going on or appreciated the significance of it all. i would not even say I really grasped the symbolism behind the ashes being in the form of a black cross.
What I seemed to appreciate, as I look back in hindsight, is the demeanor of the service itself.
