Why do we celebrate Lent? Lent originally was a training period for baptismal candidates who were required to fast, and then it became a period of self-abasement and repentance for the Catholic church and some traditions. Many people would fast or give up some certain things. However, we understand more than what we do, it should be about what Christ did. And it should be a spiritual period to meditate on the passion of Christ deeply and experience spiritual renewal. The church invited members to participate in this 40-day spiritual journey, using “The Cross of Christ” daily devotional material.
