Lent: the time of preparation and reflection before the great celebration of Easter.
It's a time of prayer, sacrifice and doing good things for others.
The 40 days of Lent represents Jesus' time in the wilderness before He began his public ministry. During that time He prayed and was tempted and challenged.
