Catechism # 1171 Scripture Genesis 2:7 Matthew 4:1 -11 Mark 1:15 Acts 3:19 Proclaim Key Concepts Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent and a day that reminds us of our death through the use of ashes. Throughout salvation history, ashes have been a symbol of penance; they are used during Lent to remind us of the importance of repentance. Recalling our own death at the beginning of Lent helps us to consider how we are living, decipher what sins we are struggling with, and commit to reconciling our relationship with God.
