The Season of Lent
Lent is the forty-day preparatory period before Easter, beginning on Ash
Wednesday. Lent begins this year on March 1 and culminates on Easter
Sunday, April 16. In the Christian tradition, the season of Lent is a time of
soul searching and repentance—a time for reflection while taking stock of
one’s life in preparation for the Easter celebration of the risen Christ.
This booklet is a collection of Lenten Reflections from contributors
throughout the Edgewood College community. Generally we have
included only a portion of the biblical text due to space constraints. We
hope these reflections, based on readings in the Common Christian
Lectionary, serve as a guide and a point of inspiration for you during this
year’s observance of Lent.
