Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice shared a sweet family photo from Ash Wednesday. It was a cute picture of two of her girls with the traditional ash on their foreheads. She tweeted it with the message “My Ash Wednesday girls.” But apparently not everyone supported her sharing of this very personal symbol of her family’s faith.
Teresa apparently felt that she had to defend the photo (and the practice) saying:
“For those of you complaining about my Ash Wed pic, I think that my girls & I are proud of our faith is beautiful…”
She also shared the following quote, “Ash Wed: “a solemn and joyous occasion, an opportunity to remember both the depths of sacrifice and the height of redemption” -Pres. Obama”
Regardless of what you think of Teresa’s family’s religion, the photo of the girls sure is adorable!
