Lent

LentA season of 40 days leading up to Easter Day. Lent reminds us of the 40 days that the Gospels tell us of Jesus fasting in the wild. Normally we do not use the Gloria during the Liturgy in Lent either. It is interesting to note that we tend to appreciate these things a little more when we return from lent to celebrate the resurrection. (see article)
