The Great Lent FAQ

The Great Lent is the time of sharing of our time, talents and resources for the benefit of others. During this lenten season, we encourage people to share their knowlege about Great Lent for others to learn and embrace the importance of Great Lent. Here, we will collect frequently asked questions on Great Lent.

 

Qn 1. What is the siginificance of Great Lent ?

Answer: Lent is a time the church prepares us for the resurrection of Christ. The resurrection is more than a historical event. It prepares us to come closer to  God and thus for our own salvation. The Church, in its wisdom, provides us a time to refocus on our relationship to God and to live a Christ centered life.

 

Qn 2. Why do Orthodox Christians fast on Wednesdays and Fridays?

Answer: Orthodox Christians fast on Wednesday in remembrance of the betrayal of Christ and on Fridays in remembrance of His crucifixion and death.

 

The Great Lent

The Great lent or the fifty day's lent is observed as a preparation for our Lord's death on the cross and His resurrection. The great lent is a time for prayers, fasting, repentance and reconciliation with God. It's a time to be thankful for all the blessings the Lord has showered on us.


Fasting and Prayer are an integral part of the great lent. The Lord taught us "Except by prayer and fasting, it is not possible to gain victory over Satan - St. Mathew 17:21".
