Lent is a season of soul-searching and repentance. It’s a season for reflection and taking stock. It marks a time for prayer and preparation to celebrate Easter. It’s a time when the faithful, rededicate themselves in the faith and prepare for His resurrection. By observing the forty days of Lent, the individual Christian imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness for forty days. (Matthew Chapter 4) Penitential prayer, fasting, and almsgiving have traditionally marked Lent. Some people today still observe a rigid schedule of fasting on certain days during Lent, especially the giving up of meat, sweets, and other types of food. Most churches that observe Lent focus on it as a special time of penance, repenting for failures and sin as a way to focus on the need for God’s grace. It is really a preparation to celebrate God’s marvelous redemption at Easter, and the resurrected life that we live, and hope for, as Christians.
