Today marks the first day of the Christian Lent period  which is also Ash Wednesday, a day where Christians attend Mass/Service and religious leaders draw the sign of a cross with ashes onto their foreheads as ashes are a symbol of repentance and death where as Lent is a season of spiritual preparation where many Christians fast and repent ahead of Easter.

However, Christians  have been called upon to deeply reflect about their spiritual well-being ahead of Easter celebrations because the end goal is to see Jesus.
