The Season of Lent

The seasons of Advent and Epiphany challenge us by God's gracious intervention in human affairs, the season of Lent prepares us for the death and resurrection of Christ. The transition between the seasons of Epiphany and Lent is marked by a deepening realism about the cost of discipleship.

It involves facing our temptations, knowing ourselves, having new attitudes, changing dispositions, and living prayerfully. As a penitent season of the church, it provides for a forty day period of fasting, in imitation of Jesus' fast in the wilderness. Easter is on 23 March 2008.

Feel free to use The Way of the Cross on this blog to help your Lenten meditations.
