Transcript of Lent
Prayer is important during Lent because it helps prepare you for Easter and helps you meditate on Jesus' sacrifice. Prayer Fasting is the act of giving up something, namely food. Catholics fast to give up something close to us, much like Jesus gave up his life for us.
Catholics fast on Fridays by not eating meat, along with their Lenten sacrifice. We are allowed to stop fasting on Sundays because it is a miniature celebration of Jesus' Resurrection and a time to rejoice. Fasting Almsgiving Almsgiving is the act of giving things to people who need it, usually to charities or less fortunate people.
During Lent, Catholics give to people more because they're following in Jesus' example. Jesus gave to people who were less fortunate than him and who needed his help. Being a generous person is a quality that is important as a Catholic - to strive towards heavenly perfection is to follow in His footsteps, and to do that we can start by giving alms. Lent is the forty day period before Easter, although it does not count Sundays. It prepares us for Easter and during so, we relive Jesus' sacrifice and crucifixion to save us from our sins.
During Lent, Catholics prepare for Easter using prayer, almsgiving, and fasting. Please watch over us during this Lenten season. Give me the self-control to keep my promises to You.
Help us to remember Your sacrifice for our sins everyday as we prepare for Easter.
