The season of Lent was first observed as the time to prepare those who were being accepted as new members of the church community. By prayer, fasting, and good works, the catechumens became ready to be baptized during the Easter Vigil. This season soon was extended to all the faithful and now is a special season of grace for all to grow deeper in their commitment
to live the Gospel call.
