Palms to Ashes

Ashes are sacramental. Sacramentals are sacred signs instituted by the church. A sacramental is an object or an action which is regarded as encouraging devotion and thus spirituality aiding the person who uses it. The ashes are made from the Blessed palms using Palm Sunday celebration the previous year. They are blessed with holy water and are scented by exposure to incense. While the ashes symbolize penance and contrition, they are also a reminder that God is gracious and merciful to those who call on God.
