Ash Wednesday (22 Feb 2012) is the start of the  forty-day Season of Lent. It derives its name from the practice of  placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance  and renewal. The ashes traditionally come the burned palms used during  the previous year’s Palm Sunday. When the priest/minister  imposes ashes on the forehead of the faithful, he says “Remember you are  dust, and to dust you shall return” or “Turn away from sin and be  faithful to the Gospel.”
