Once a year Catholics come out with smudges of ash on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday. It's a sacrament I think.
Nah...ashes aren't a sacrament. The seven sacraments of the RCC are: baptism, confirmation, eucharist, penance, anointing of the sick, holy orders, and matrimony.
I did confession (penance) exactly once when I was about 13 or so before I finally wised up.
I did get married in a church but it didn't take. The second time around, we had a judge. A Jesuit priest, friend of the the family, came to the celebration. He asked to speak with us privately before the ceremony and we kinda figured he might say he would get us annulments for our previous marriages, not that we really cared. But no, he just wanted to ask us to get involved in a church, faithfully tithe, and perhaps someday the church would oblige.
Thanks, padre, not interested.
