The Lent "Revenez à moi..."

Seigneur, avec toi nous irons au désert ... ! The season of Lent prepares us for Easter, the greatest feast of the Liturgical year. The first Christian communities organised all their celebrations around the main feast of Easter. Slowly, over the years, it was felt that the celebration of Easter had to be organised in a very special manner, by setting aside a few days of prayer and fasting as an immediate preparation for such an important feast.

It was at the Easter Vigil that catechumens received the sacraments of Christian Initiation and the Christian community joined them during those days of preparation. Eventually, the time of preparation was prolonged until il reached the symbolic "40 days", recalling the 40 days in the desert of Jesus.
