Lent is a 40-day period before Easter that commemorates the time Jesus spent in the wilderness. In the early church, this was a time of preparation for those about to be baptized. Today it is more often regarded as a season of soul searching and repentance for all Christians when we prepare for the joy and celebration of Easter by giving ourselves an annual spiritual check up. This period begins with Ash Wednesday and concludes on Easter Sunday.
