RESOURCES

Daily Devotions: Prayerfully consider the meaning of discipleship and the significance of Ignatian values in today’s dizzyingly distracted world with the Jesuit Lenten program, Igniting Our Values.

Guidelines for Fasting: Many Christians fast by “giving up” something for Lent. Catholics who are fourteen years old and older must abstain from meat (e.g., beef, chicken, etc.) every Friday during Lent, although eggs and dairy products are permitted. For Greek Orthodox Christians’ guidelines for fasting during Great Lent, click here.

BACKGROUND

Lent is a forty day period of time during which Christians devote themselves to prayer, fasting, and works of mercy as a way of preparing themselves to celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection at Easter. Originally a time of preparation for those who would be baptized on Easter, Lent gradually became a time when those who had left the practice of their faith would return to Christ and the Church. Today, Lent offers Christians an opportunity to prepare themselves to recommit to their baptismal promises at Easter by returning to the basic practices of their faith during Lent.

 “NOW is the time” (2 Cor. 6:2a, NAB).
