    They did not wear them as this was a political forum. God knows the ashes are there, whether we can see them or not.

    Ash Wednesday is NOT a holy day of obligation for Catholics.

    It's customary for us to go to Mass on that day, and to receive the ashes -- but it is NOT required.

    So, if Santorum and Gingrich (a convert to Catholicism) were just too busy to make it to Mass that day, no problem. They were not required to go.

    Another possibility is that they DID go to Mass, and DID receive the ashes -- but needed to wipe them off before the TV makeup was applied.

    Either way, the measure of any Catholic's faith is not in outward appearances. It's what's in our minds and in our souls.

    I wonder if it was due to the makeup for the cameras. I didn't see any ashes tonight.

    This afternoon at a campaign event, Santorum definitely had ashes on his forehead, Sister. I did not see Gingrich earlier in the day, but the TV makeup may have covered up any ashes tonight.

    That was the first thing I looked for.... maybe they're going to church later tonight? I also figured maybe they didn't want to be obvious.

    Maybe they went early. Not to mention the required TV makeup. Not ready to judge them on ashes

    edit add: If they had them, there would be some who would claim they were being hypocrites by showing their religiosity - it is a no win
