What is Lent?

Lent is a forty-day period of reflection, repentance, and preparation leading up to Easter. It commemorates Jesus' forty days and nights of fasting in the wilderness and prepares Christians for the celebration of Christ's resurrection. During Lent, many Christians focus on self-examination, introspection, and spiritual growth through practices like prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
