From tomorrow (Wednesday), Catholics all over the world will mark this year’s Ash Wednesday, signifying the commencement of the 40-day Lenten Season.

According to Msgr. Gabriel Osu, spokesman for the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, “Ash Wednesday ushers in the Lenten Season, a 40-day period of penance, reflection and fasting which prepares us for Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday.

“It is a period of conversion, self denial, renewal, reconciliation, change and growth; it is about denying self for the life of others.”

The hallmark of Ash Wednesday, Osu said, is the marking of the forehead of Catholic faithful with ashes, making the “sign of the cross” as a reminder of their sinful nature.
