Questions about Lent

Posted on January 29, 2018

Lent is the season of the Church in which we model Christ's Tempation in the Desert before he began his public ministry. The season begins on Ash Wednesday, when our foreheads are marked with ashes as a reminder that we are created from dust and to dust we shall return. Lent is a time of stripping down to essentials, as we each focus on our relationship with God. During Lent, we are asked to increase our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in order to prepare ourselves for the celebration of the Paschal Triduum and Easter.
