An Invitation to a Holy Lent

 

February 10, 2016 is the first day of Lent which is called Ash Wednesday.  On this day we are called to recognize our sinfulness and to begin a period of repentence, fasting, and alms giving which will last until the Great Vigil of Easter!  The fast lasts 40 days ? excluding Sundays which are always feast days ? and reminds us of Jesus? 40 days being tempted in the wilderness by Satan.  (You can find the story in the Gospel of Luke, chapter 4, verses 1-13;  the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 4, verses 1-11; and the Gospel of Mark, chapter 1, verses 12-13.)

We gather for the imposition of ashes (getting ashes placed on our foreheads by the priest) which symbolizes and is a token of our repentence and mourning for our sins.
