Lent is an important part of the church year. It is a season of 40 days (46 if one includes Sundays) during which we prepare for Easter. It echoes the 40 days spent by Jesus, fasting in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil, before he began his earthly ministry (see Matthew 4:1-11; Mark 1:12-13; and Luke 4:1-13). It should be a time of penitence (thinking about, and saying sorry to God for, our faults and wrongdoing) and self-denial.
