Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, the 40-day period (not counting Sundays) preceding Easter that focuses on repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside this time to dig deeper into how the Holy Word of God increases our faith and our understanding of who God is.
