Ash Wednesday

"Remember, man, that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return."

Picture source here.

A blessed Ash Wednesday to all.

I've heard that sentence many times, but never made that particular connection before. A marvelous post.

And it also put me in mind of an old family joke about an old Polish sacristan who had to take over one Ash Wednesday. I'll post it one of these days but I'll have to check with my dad to make sure I get it right....
