FASTING

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and is a movable feast_ 2016 date February 10 2017 date March 1 2018 date February 14 2019 date March 6 observed by many Western Christians, including Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Roman Catholics. The gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke recount Jesus Christ spending 40 days fasting in the desert, where he endured temptation by Satan, and Lent mirrors this fasting of 40 days as a preparation for Easter. Each Sunday was seen as a commemoration of the Sunday of Christ's resurrection (Easter) and so fasting was thought inappropriate on the Sabbath.

ASHING

Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of blessing ashes made from palm branches blessed on the previous year's Palm Sunday, and placing them on the heads of participants to the accompaniment of the words "Repent, and believe in the Gospel" or "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return".
