This lovely 5×7 print will help you start Lent right. “Memento Mori” means “Remember your death,” and that’s what we do on Ash Wednesday. Ashes aren’t a sign of our sin, but rather of our mortality, and of the fact that we should live in a way that makes us feel prepared for death. When the priest makes the cross on our foreheads (or sprinkles us with ashes, which is also valid and is the usual practice in many parts of the world), he says, “Remember, man, you are dust, and unto dust you shall return.”
Ash Wednesday is when we remember that because of the original sin committed in the Garden of Eden by Adam and Eve, we are mortal. We will die. It’s not something that’s necessarily pleasant to think about, but it’s just the right motivation to get our acts together as we head into Lent.
