Marcos calls on Catholics to reflect on Ash Wednesday

President Ferdinand ''Bongbong'' Marcos Jr. urged the Catholic faithful to reflect in the observance of Ash Wednesday.

''In observing Ash Wednesday, let us all reflect and renew our faith,'' Marcos said in a caption of his photo showing the ash placed on his forehead.

Several Filipino Catholics went to churches early Wednesday morning to attend Mass and have ashes placed on their foreheads as they marked the start of the 40-day Lenten season.

On Tuesday night, the palaspas or palm fronds used in last year’s Palm Sunday were burned in various churches.

The ashes collected from the ritual were to be used on the foreheads of churchgoers on Ash Wednesday. — Anna Felicia Bajo/RSJ, GMA Integrated News
