The Season of Lent Begins

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of the season of Lent for Western Christianity. In Orthodox churches, Lent (or Great Lent) begins on Clean Monday.

The season of Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.
