Ash Wednesday

It is Ash Wednesday on the 17th of February. It is the first day of Lent counting forty six days (40 days not counting the Sundays.)

Ash Wednesday gets it name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as sign of repentance. The ashes used are after the palm crosses from the previous year's Palm Sunday are burned. It reminds us that we came from ashes and there we shall return.

For those of you who are in Dubai, below are the mass schedule on Wednesday, 17th of February 2010 if you are planning to attend at St. Mary's Chruch.

Morning services: 5.30 am; 6.15 am; 7.30 am and 9.00 am.

Evening services: 3.00 pm; 4.30 pm; 6.00 pm (followed by holy rosary and novena) and 8.00 pm.

How are you planning to spend your Lent, will you be fasting this time?
