IT’S easy to remember as it comes the day after Pancake Day.
But Lent has distant bigger stress for Christians than simply following on from a day of crepes with lemon and sugar – here’s what we know.
What is Lent in Christianity?
It is a eremite tact in the liturgical calendar that starts on Ash Wednesday.
To you and me, this simply means it is an critical moment in the church or Christian year.
Lent ends 6 weeks after it starts before Easter Sunday – when Jesus is pronounced to have resurrected.
It is time for Christians to ready for Easter by prayer, doing penance repenting impiety and denying themselves.
It is celebrated in the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist and Catholic churches.
What do Christians do during Lent?
Many Christians confirm to quick as good as giving up luxuries for Lent.
This replicates the story of Jesus Christ’s tour into the dried for 40 days.
And as such Lent traditionally last for 40 days and ends with Easter Vigil at dusk on Holy Saturday – the day before Easter Sunday.
Many Christians supplement in something like reading a daily eremite or praying by a Lenten calendar to draw themselves closer to god.
Some Roman Catholics and Protestant churches private flowers from their alters which eremite statues and crucifixes are mostly veiled.
As good as this some Roman Catholics also don’t eat beef via length.
Do Sundays count as partial of Lent?
One calculation has found that Lent actually lasts for 46 days.
But this is only if the Sundays are included.
If they are not enclosed that marks 40 days – the normal length of Lent.
This means there is maybe no requirement to quick on the Sundays via Lent.
