Lent is starts ash wednesday(today) and goes for 40 days.
There are traditionally forty days in Lent which are marked by fasting, both from foods and festivities, and by other acts of penance. The three traditional practices to be taken up with renewed vigour during Lent are prayer (justice towards God), fasting (justice towards self), and almsgiving (justice towards neighbour). Today, some people give up a vice of theirs, add something that will bring them closer to God, and often give the time or money spent doing that to charitable purposes or organizations.
For the period of lent I am going to give up posting on the blog. I invite people who are interested in the blog to explore the archives. There are most likely videos and articles and other information posted that you haven’t seen yet.
