Rediscovering the Season of Lent

Lent is the forty days preceding Easter when Christians pray, fast and give alms to reflect on the suffering and death of Jesus. It's a period of self-denial, sacrifice and repentance that ultimately leads to the glorious re-birth and resurrection of the Easter celebration. As Easter approaches, however, maintaining the discipline of Lent is often difficult. Produced by Daybreak TV Productions of the Diocese of Buffalo, this segment explores the reasons behind our Lenten practices and reminds us that it's never too late to "turn away from sin and embrace the Gospel".
