In the Christian tradition, Lent is a forty-day period before Easter. (Sundays are skipped in counting the forty days, because Sundays commemorate the Resurrection.)

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of Lent, which is intended to be a time of self-denial, moderation, fasting, and the forsaking of sinful activities and habits.

  • "There are two moments that matter. One is when you know that your one and only life is absolutely valuable and alive. The other is when you know your life, as presently lived, is entirely pointless and empty. You need both of them to keep you going in the right direction. Lent is about both. The...
