Lenten season is a period of forty (40) days. Its a period in which Christians commemorate the 40 days Christ spent in the wilderness in preparation for his earthly ministry. For Catholics, its a period of fasting, abstinence, sober reflection, reconciliation between man and God, man and man and a period of retreat and surrender oneself to God. It starts with ash Wednesday and ends on good Friday.
