The Rite for Burning Palms before Ash Wednesday
After the latest podcast on Ash Wednesday aired, we received some queries about Fr. Braden sharing the rite he uses for the burning of palms for use in the imposition of ashes. This rite is included in this post. Fr. Braden does give one caveat: He no longer has the proper attribution for this rite available. He thinks that it comes from monastic usage, with some changes made by him for Lutheran theological usage. But he does not have the full attribution after some file damages years ago.
