Outside of Catholicism, little is understood about Ash Wednesday. The wonderful thing about this holiday is that anyone can distribute ashes to anyone else–it is a reminder to us all of our mortality (Gen 3:19), and of how it is only God who is truly in charge in this world. He alone can give us a crown of beauty instead of ashes” (Isaiah61:3b).
