The Season of Lent

Lent precedes and prepares for Easter. It is a time to hear the Word of God, to convert, to prepare for and remember Baptism, to be reconciled with God and one's neighbor, and of more frequent recourse to the "arms of Christian penance": prayer, fasting and good works.       - Directory of Popular Piety & Liturgy
