40 Days of Freedom

Lent (Latin: #Quadragesima, ‘ #Fortieth’) is a religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar commemorating the 40 days #Jesus spent fasting in the desert and enduring temptation by Satan, according to the Gospels of #Matthew, #Mark and #Luke, before beginning his #publicministry. 💜

The 40-day period is called Lent after an old English word meaning ‘#lengthen’.

Prayer, #Fasting, and #Almsgiving
