    The Meaning of Lent

    In the Catholic church, lent is a penitential season of 40 days that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends the evening of Holy Thursday. The term lent actually comes from the old English word “lencten”, which translates roughly to “lengthen”, in reference to the lengthening of days in spring - in which Lent is always observed. The 40 day period is intended to mirror the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert before his public ministry. Lent is marked by the liturgical color purple, which along with royalty also represents repentance. During this period, Catholics are called to enter into the desert with Christ to prepare for the Triduum and Easter by praying, fasting and giving alms.
