atone"At the end of the penance period, the sinner can be taken back into the community in a dramatic act. The sinner stands in sackcloth in front of the church and throws himself to the ground to kiss the feet of his fellow believers"; "We will find ourselves often enough not having done what is necessary. That is all too human. But we do not need to walk around in sackcloth and ashes with guilt. Rather, we can also stand by our mistakes"; "We have no reason to be sacked and ashes!"; "What are the consequences of such misconduct? Our kind would go to sackcloth; you by no means!"; "Nobody has to go into sackcloth to behave in an environmentally and people-friendly manner"; "The donation scandal in Cologne has now been cleared up too, so the entire SPD in Cologne does not have to go to sackcloth"The saying connects ashes as a symbol of mourning and penance and the baggy clothes of the penitent. In the Ash Wednesday customs (sprinkling with ashes to repent at the beginning of Lent), Germanic and Old Testament customs are said to have mixed. The connection of ashes with repentance or with sack can be found in several places in the Bible: "That is why I plead guilty and repent in dust and ashes"; "When Mardochai found out all that had happened, he tore up his Clothes and sackcloth and ashes and went out into the middle of the city and shouted loudly and pitifully. " wept, mourned, and lay in sacks and in ashes ";" And I turned to the Lord God, to pray and supplicate with fasting in sackcloth and in ashes ";" And when it came before the king of Nineveh, it stood he on from hism throne and laid hisn purple and wrapped a sack around himself and sat down in the ashes and had people called out and said to Nineveh according to the king's orders and hisThus rulers: neither man nor cattle, neither ox nor sheep should eat, neither should they graze nor make them drink water; and they shall wrap sacks around them, both man and beast, and cry out fiercely to God; and turn every one of you from hism evil ways and from iniquity hisr hands ";" Woe to you Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! Would be such didIt happened in Tire and Sidon, as it happened to you, that they repented in sackcloth and in ashes before.
