It can be any of these three that the priest will say:

  • Remember, O man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return. - Genesis 3:19
  • Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel. -Mark 1:15
  • Repent, and hear the good news.
Then the lay people reply with an AMEN! after he says either of those.

Where does the name ash Wednesday come from?

I'm leaving the original answer below the hyphens, but it's worth noting that Ash Wednesday does not have biblical origins. Ash Wednesday, like many Christian traditions practiced in the U.S. and Europe are actually a hybrid of Pagan/Christian beliefs. In any case, the term may have originated in Northern Europe where the God Wodin was symbolically protected by having the ashes of King Sigurd put on his head. It's worth mentioning that Norse warriors would also get ashes smeared on their heads to protect them in battle. The calendar day Wednesday comes from the God Wodin as well. This would describe Ash Wednesday's origins (Ash Wodin). -- Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent, when Jesus went to the desert and spent 46 days being tempted by Satin. In Ancient biblical times, to put ash on ones self was a sign of sorrow of repentance for sin. Lent is a time when Christians are supposed to cleanse themselves of sin, so all of ones sins that one committed outside of Lent are to be forgiven as you enter it. Usually, the priest burns the palm fronds from the previous year's Palm Sunday and puts the ashes on one's head in the shape of a cross.

What does the Priest wear at Mass?

The first thing that the priest puts on is called a vestment and it is the white robe, called an alb. (this represents baptism). The next thing he puts on is called a cincture. This is the rope that hangs around his waist. Then he puts on is called a stole (the scarf like item of clothing) and it is the priests' way of saying "Jesus, be with me today as I celebrate this mass." The last vestment he puts on is called a chausable (the priest generally wears a green chausable during the churches 'ordinary time'). See Catholic Encyclopedia article below:
