Ashes2Easter: What is the goal of my Lenten sacrifice?
A Question of Faith: Do I have to Observe My Lenten Sacrifice on Sundays?
The Lenten sacrifice refers to a pleasure or luxury that Christians give up for the liturgical season of Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday annually. The tradition of the Lenten sacrifice has its roots in Jesus fasting for forty days in the Judæn desert. When Lent is over and Easter Sunday arrives, the faithful are able to indulge in what they sacrificed during the Lenten season.
