SA celebrates Ash Wednesday, beginning of Lent

First United Methodist Church will be at the corner of Walnut Street and 1st Street in downtown Rogers from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m. with their annual "Ashes to Go".

Fr. Charles Luis Jayme of the Archdiocese of Cebu told reporters that the faithful may do this by practicing good deeds and observing abstinence.

The cross is a major symbol of faith, and the ashes represent penance.

Bower, who's been at St. Andrew's for eight years, said some church members saw a church in Minneapolis doing it and recommended it for St. Andrew's. The ashes represent our return to the dust after we die. While many people want to observe Ash Wednesday, Rawles said many people honestly needed another option.

Short Interest in Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Grows By 12
Inc. now owns 11,759 shares of the software giant's stock worth $677,000 after buying an additional 58 shares during the period. JJJ Advisors Inc. purchased a new position in shares of Microsoft Corporation during the fourth quarter valued at $186,000.

Ash Wednesday is also a day of fast and abstinence from meat.

As Easter is a moveable feast, so is Ash Wednesday, and thus also the last day of Carnival.

"When I heard about the idea, I thought "I've got to do that" but I was so scared I nearly didn't do it", he said. On this Ash Wednesday, the ashes signify the beginning of the 40-day Lenten season.

Several Chicago area churches this year plan to mix a purple glitter with the ashes to show a sign of support for the LGBTQ community. "On Ash Wednesday we sign the foreheads of all Catholics with a cross using ash".

Warner Bros. is working on a Nightwing movie
The closest thing to a Boy Wonder appearance Nolan gave to fans was Joseph Gordon Levitt's John Blake in " The Dark Knight Rises". Hopefully, though, Chris McKay will be allowed to maintain moments of levity and silliness within this new Nightwing movie .

Blasing related the words of Schiffelbein in his homily, that "Lent isn't to be a burden - it's to be a time when we're actually giving of ourselves and helping other people". Many give up alcohol and candies, and all food one day a week.

Many Auburn University students are preparing for Lent by committing to cutting out their favorite indulgences for 40 days. "I have made a list of 40 things that I will be taking up during the holy month of Lent". The season of Lent avails us the opportunity to reflect upon our personal relationship with God and how he created us in love precisely to love others as he has loved us.

Father Maloney says on Ash Wednesday he often sees people who are restricted from attending a traditional service because of work or health reasons.

Jennifer Rodd, of Valparaiso, who attends St. Andrew's, said this is her favorite church season.
