Many Mexican Catholics celebrated Ash Wednesday by putting the number 43 on their foreheads instead of the cross as a sign of solidarity with the missing Ayotzinapa students who disappeared on Sept. 26.

The Catholic faithful then uploaded their pictures to Mexican social media with the hashtag #43NoSonCeniza, which means "The 43 are not ashes."
