What can you do to get ashes off your thumb?

ASHES,ASH WEDNESDAY
Share
I’ll be giving out ashes at four Masses and one Liturgy of the Word tomorrow, so my thumb will be getting a workout. We typically get about 4,000 people at the parish on Ash Wednesday. That doesn’t include the religious ed kids, walk-ins, visits to the local firehouse…it gets busy.

So here’s my clergy pro-tip for the day: use this stuff.

We’ve been using these — or variations of them — at the parish for years, and they really work. And they smell so good, too!

Try them. You can thank me later.
