ASH WEDNESDAY ~ Fast and Abstain

I said to myself: As for the children of men, it is God's way of testing them and of showing that they are in themselves like beasts. For the lot of man and of beast is one lot; the one dies as well as the other. Both have the same life-breath, and man has no advantage over the beast; but all is vanity. Both go to the same place; both were made from the dust, and to the dust they both return.

~ Ecclesiastes 3:18-20

(The New American Bible)
