Today is Ash Wednesday, a day when believers, followers of Christ gather to celebrate the day.
The day that the followers of Christ consider holy, they put ashes on their heads and continue to eat meat
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, holding the ashes to the head reflects the Christian faith on the grace they received from God.
“By receiving the cross of ash, we acknowledge our human frailty – and our dependence upon God’s healing grace.”

The day of his ascension was the day on which the forty-day Christian fast began to commemorate Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross.
During this forty-day fast, people practice certain practices and live holy lives as believers.
The Passover marked the death and resurrection of Jesus the Savior on the third day after his death on the cross.
