Lent: a Time of Preparation

Lent: a Time of Preparation

Lent is a season that represents the 40 days Jesus wandered the desert praying and fasting after He was baptized. Christians use this season as a time of prayer, penance, sacrifice, and good works in preparation for Easter. Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, which is March 6. 

While sacrifice and the act of giving up something during Lent is a common practice, inserting a new discipline into daily routine is also a great way to rejuvenate and prepare oneself for the celebration of Easter.
