tradition

Though we follow the Byzantine tradition, and our Lent started Monday, we were raised Roman Catholic and still like to get our ashes on Wednesday.

What is the Byzantine tradition? I no longer go to Ash Wednesday services, but I do still "give something up" for Lent. I love the structure of it. I was raised Episcopalian.

The Byzantine tradition is a rite of the Catholic Church. Most people think of the Roman rite churches when they think of Catholics, but the Byzantine church looks similar to Eastern and Greek Orthodox churches.
