Lent 2017

Lent is a forty days time of preparation for the paschal mysteries.

The most important in liturgical calendar, Paschal Tide, is actually made up of the 40 days of Lent and 50 days of Easter Time. The penitential character of Lent from on one hand reminds us of intensive spiritual effort, but on the other hand it is a time of great joy, because it puts us in the stream of special grace of God which is his Love for us.

The three big themes of Lent are:

1. Conversion
2. Baptism
3. The Passion of Christ

The Lenten period begins with Ash Wednesday and lasts untill Holy Thursday. With the evening service on Holy Thursday we begin the Holy Paschal Triduum.
