The Lent Season

Today (18 Feb) is the first Sunday of Lent which is an important season in the Christian calendar.  It is the 40-day period that started from Ash Wednesday (14 February) leading up to Good Friday and Easter, but excluding Sundays – Sunday being the day of Christ’s resurrection.  As early as the third century, the church has set aside the Lent season as a time for Christians to prepare themselves through prayer, repentance and fasting.  May this Lent season renew our faith, hope and love for the Lord.
