- Dear Editors,
I enjoyed and found Ypdkno Dr. Paul Samuel's article on Great Lent http://www.socdigest.org/articles/01jan08.html to be very informative.
However Sub deacon mentions Ash Wednesday in the article, from the accompanying paragraph I understood him to be referring "Middle of Lent liturgical service"/Pagdi Nombu.
Why is the rationale behind calling it Ash Wednesday?
Do correct me if I am wrong.
Regards and prayers
- Dear Mr. Suraj,

I got that term from one of the articles I previously read(but cant

Anyway the query prompted me to correct it. Ash Wednesday is a Roman
Catholic practice and it is the first Wednesday of the Lent. Its not
in our tradition
I apologise for the accidental but serious error.
Thanks to Suraj for pointing it out.
