Great Lent Photo-a-Day 2021 - Великопосний Виклик Усім: ФОТО ЩОДНЯ!
Do you generally give something up during Lent?
Would you consider adding in a new practice to your daily routine? A new challenge?
Great Lent, the season of our Church Year that is typically observed as a time of repentance, simple living, prayer and fasting leading up to PASCHA the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and it begins this year on Forgiveness Sunday (March 14, 2021). But what is Great Lent REALLY about?
Many spend the time in self-examination and reflection as modeled by our Savior in the Gospel according to St. Matthew 4: 1-11 where the Lord prayed and fasted for 40 days before beginning his ministry.
What is supposed to happen with us during these 40 days of fasting and praying in the wilderness of our life? Maybe we need some time with God to sort through the major changes happening in our personal way of life. Maybe we need to take a break from the regular routine in order to see God in our lives more clearly. Maybe we need more time with God for reevaluation of our relationship with Him and the world around us… Maybe we need to ask ourselves from time to time: “Who am I called to be?”
So, we are invited into this time of introspection.
