The Lenten Season is like a spiritual Spring Training until Easter. The penitential season of six Sundays and 40 weekdays prepares for the high feast of Easter. Lent begins Ash Wednesday and ends with the beginning of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper in the evening known as Holy Thursday. Lent is form the Anglo-Saxon word which means Spring. Sundays are considered mini “Easters” as you celebrate the Lord’s Day. If you are exercising a Lenten discipline, some people cheat on this day and some don’t; let your conscience guide you.
