Thursday's Theological Thoughts: A Baptismal Reminder Found in Ash Wednesday

Thursday's Theological Thoughts

I’m going to begin a new line of blog posts on Thursdays that will deal with various theological thoughts I may be working through or that were brought to my attention. Today’s post is about a thought I had swirling around in my mind over the past week in preparation for Ash Wednesday.

In my last blog post (click here: ) I discussed three reasons for the imposition of ashes. I will summarize them as:

1. Reminder that we are dust

2. Reminder that we are sinners

3. Reminder that Christ places his mark on us through Word and Sacraments (specifically Baptism)
