    Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    Lent is a special time of prayer, penance, sacrifice and good works in preparation of the celebration of Easter.

    Vatican Council II stated, "The two elements which are especially characteristic of Lent -- the recalling of baptism or the preparation for it, and penance

    Pope St. Leo (d. 461) preached that the faithful must "fulfill with their fasts the Apostolic institution of the 40 days," again noting the apostolic origins of Lent. One can safely conclude that by the end of the fourth century, the 40-day period of Easter preparation known as Lent existed, and that prayer and fasting constituted its primary spiritual exercises.

    Of course, the number "40" has always had special spiritual significance regarding preparation. On Mount Sinai, preparing to receive the Ten Commandments, "Moses stayed there with the Lord for 40 days and 40 nights, without eating any food or drinking any water" (Ex 34:28). Elijah walked "40 days and 40 nights" to the mountain of the Lord, Mount Horeb (another name for Sinai) (I Kgs 19:8). Most importantly, Jesus fasted and prayed for "40 days and 40 nights" in the desert before He began His public ministry (Mt 4:2).

    Learning about Lent and Easter Season

    What is Lenten Season? Lent is a season of repentance, and a time to prepare for the celebration of the Passover of Jesus.
    How many days of Lenten Season? When it starts and end? The Lenten Season is 40 days long, including six Sundays; beginning at Ash Wednesday and ending before the Last Supper Mass on the Evening Holy Thursday.
    What is the meaning of receiving the Ash on forehead? What are the words given by minister? Receiving ashes on the forehead reminds Christians of our human weakness, and sinfulness, therefore, we must live with an attitude of humility before our Lord and to recognize and repent for our sins. The minister says these words when she/he gives ashes to people “repent and believe in the Gospel"
