Palm to ashes to dust: remember that you are dust...



Ash Wednesday is a week from today!

In many parishes, old palm branches are being collected now to be burned to make ashes for Ash Wednesday on February 17.

If your parish is collecting palm, take a minute now to remove any pieces you have tucked behind a crucifix or another place in your home and put them in a place (your car) where you'll remember them this coming weekend.

Remember, man: you are dust
and to dust you shall return...

Remember, woman: you are dust
and to dust you shall return...

(Roman Rite for Ash Wednesday)
