SUNDAY IN LENT

The Lenten Season begins on Ash Wednesday and continues until Easter. The period commemorates the forty days Christ fasted and was tempted in the wilderness.

 

Lent was observed by the church  as early as the second century by a brief period of fasting preceding Easter.  Since the observance fell during the early part of the year, it became confused with the season, and it’s name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon Lencten, which means spring- the time when the days lengthen. In the last few days they are beginning to lengthen and we feel spring in the air. Lenten Season is leading up to the greatest event in the history of mankind, the Easter Season. In This Easter Season as we commemorate the glorious resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we remember his words. “Because I live ye shall live also,” These words should have a great impact on our generation today.  May we, too hear His voice and become His witnesses. In this life only we have hope in Christ Jesus (I Corinthians 15:19).
