Ashes on the forehead are a REMEMBERANCE of our beginning, NOTHING to do with fasting, washing one's face or anything to do with not showing off. It's our kick-off to Lent, not a Lenten practice like fasting and abstaining.
Just a remembrance, a reminder to us Catholics...remember the funeral rite, from dust to dust, ashes to ashes? You have your Biblical reference or interpretation mixed up with this one.
I’m not mixed up in the least, but dust your head if you wish.
