A Catholic Guide to Ashes - Ash Wednesday
As a "brown" person walking down a busy city street it can be startling to witness white folks with a mark on their forehead. I use the term "white" folks in lieu of Caucasians because technically, some "brown" folks are Caucasian (look it up). Let me digress...Brown folks are the bearer of marks on their forehead, not white people!
I stumbled upon the image above, "A Catholic Guide to Ashes" which is credited to @BillDonaghy via Twitter. Take a look at the bottom row, second from the right. Yup, "The Hindu"! Wait a second, you can't steal the Bindi and make it Catholic, that's just not copacetic. I want Ash Wednesday to be completely Catholic, with no relation to being a Hindu. I need Ash Wednesday's as an example for every time some ignorant person inquires about the "Dot" (aka Bindi) and it's significance.
We'll let our audience be the judge on this subject.
