Marking the beginning of Lent season

 Rev. Msgr. Robert C. Gibbons, St. Paul's Catholic Church, St. Petersburg, applies a cross of ash to the forehead of parishioner Timothy Logan, St. Petersburg, Wednesday, February 10, 2016 during Ash Wednesday mass. Wednesday marked the first day of the 46-day season of Lent. According to Biblical gospels, Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the desert as he endured temptations from Satan. Ash Wednesday takes place each year 46 days before Easter. Ashes are used as a reminder of human mortality and a sign of mourning.
