Lent

Lent is observed in many Christian denominations, beginning on Ash Wednesday and culminating on Easter Sunday. The approximately six-week period is a time of preparation for commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Common practices during Lent include fasting, abstaining from luxuries or reading daily devotionals. The length of the period reflects the time Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness, battling temptation by Satan. View more
