By BBN Staff: Today marks the start of the Lenten season for the Catholic community.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends about 6 weeks after.

According to Britannica, Lent is a period of penitential preparation for Easter. Many people engage in a 40-day fasting period with Sundays excluded.

This is usually done in imitation of Jesus fasting in the wilderness before he began his ministry.

The official liturgical color for the season of Lent is violet.

The observance of Lent is directly related to Easter because most Christians prepared for Easter by fasting and praying for 3 days.

The fasting and praying was extended to the entire week before Easter, now known as ‘Holy Week’.
