Shrove Tuesday before Ash Wednesday

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the liturgical date for the start of the Lenten season. Some parts of the world celebrate it as Fat Tuesday.In all catholic churches, Tuesday night is the time for the preparation of the Ash for the use of tomorrow's affair. Ash reminds us that we came from ash and from ash we will return. A time for repentance. A time for reflection of God's salvific act of suffering for the salvation of mankind.

Here is the copy of the ritual for the burning of Old Palms on Shrove Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.
