So, I’m getting some pressure from my wife to attend Mass on Wed night with her and the family. She was excited last night to learn and let me know that I “CAN” receive ashes on Wed with everyone. I’m not 100% sure I’m going to go or not, and if I do I probably wouldn’t go forward anyway. In not so many words I know I’m not welcome there (the father has even asked if I found a church yet), so I think he’d just pass me by anyway.
Anywho…Non-Catholics and Non-Catholic spouses: What do you do at Ash Wednesday? Do you receive ashes, or hold your hell bound protestant position in the pew?
Catholics: What are your thoughts? The same way I “CAN” get a blessing at communion time, many disagree with it. Do you disagree with non-Catholics coming forward for ashes. Should we hold in the pew?
