He revealed that Ash Wednesday is the day that marks the start of the Lent period in the Christian. I would go to school and see people with crosses on their foreheads which opened up conversations about our shared faith.

Lent actually begins on the same day as Valentine's Day this year.

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, a season of penance, reflection, and fasting, which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday. "Let us fill Valentine's Day with the Lenten spirit", said Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas in a Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) News post.

Today, Lent is marked for a time of prayer and preparation as Christians examine their hearts and think about their behavior and their relationships with one another and with God.

Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting, is the first day of Lent in Western Christianity. It is one of the most powerful days in the Church's calendar since it echoes the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness at the beginning of his ministry.

There is a prayer service with ashes scheduled for Wednesday at 6:30 a.

Gino's special Valentine's Day menu includes seafood and vegetarian appetizers, soups and entrees for those eliminating meat from their diet on Ash Wednesday. She said she has many discussions with people about what Lent means and has learned that it's not just about giving one thing up, but about personal sacrifice. Fasting is a discipline of abstaining from something for a period of time for spiritual benefit.

Ash Wednesday is characterized by placing ashes on the forehead, with the minister reminding the congregant that "you are dust and to dust you shall return". "The answer is that Ash Wednesday has precedence, and the coincidence of St. Valentine's Day would not lift for us the duty of fasting and self-denial". Lent is the 40 days, (excluding Sundays), before Easter. What am I going to gain by doing so?' This year I've made a decision to give up more of my time.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Knights of Columbus Blessed Trinity Council will sponsor the food drive during the six weeks of the Lenten season.
