Pope Francis waves from the Popemobile on his way to attend the Via Crucis on Copacabana Beach during World Youth Day celebrations on July 26, 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

It’s Ash Wednesday and this month is the one-year anniversary of the Francis papacy. Catholics, are you participating this year for the first time in a while? Are you getting ashes today? Are you going to make a sacrifice for lent this year?
