Lent is a time of penance, so that the faithful may share in the joys
of Easter Sunday with purity of heart. The three traditional forms of
penance, fasting, prayer, and almsgiving, express conversion in relation
to oneself, to God, and to others. Lent calls us to contemplate the redemption
wrought for our sake by Christís passion; and it admonishes us to contemplate
the effort we put into accepting that redemption. In our Baptism, this
redemption was planted in us when we promised to renounce sin and Satan
and to live a chaste, holy life in devout service to Christ. Our salvation
depends on our fulfilling those promises.
