It's Ash Wednesday, when all good Catholics dutilfy receive an ash mark on their foreheads. Applying the ash is a tiresome process carried by a priest using his finger.

Ash-Stick Finger is a simple device that replaces the finger with a Prit-stick type device that comes preloaded with a supply of suitably blessed and therefore purifed ash of perfect consistency. The ash itself arrives in a variey of shades ranging from dark to light, to ensure that even on darker skin, the lighest tone is still clearly visible. The ash is also enfused with a gentle adhesive to ensure good skin adhesion endures throughout the entire day.

Ash-Stick Finger is modelled as a replica of a saintly human finger, and periodically there is a competition to determine this year's winner.

Would a rubber stamp work ? https://en.wikipedi.../wiki/Ash_Wednesday
Is it always a cross ? [popbottle, Mar 01 2017]

       There are good ones? Hey, who knew, eh ?   

       // process carried by a priest using his finger. //   

       Is this the same finger he uses for fiddling with little kids ?   

       Catholics, catholicism [-]

       Tsk, [8th]. I'm in favour of religion, no matter what the variety. It gives the rest of us such an advantage.

       I hear that the catholic church these days is so short-staffed that they're having to ask choirboys to fiddle with themselves.

       They take their fiddling very seriously at the Holy See, but nothing beats a session of plectrum plucking.

       Well of course they're not so much plectrum pluckers as plectrum plucker's sons …

       [whatrock], you have picked up the lingo in a very short time...Yay.   

       As for the idea +. Not Catholic but would enjoy having an ash stick use somehow. I'll think of a way..
