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.
