Lent - a season of repentance, prayer and fasting HD (May 2019).
Lent in the past was long and strict when people refused all fatty foods. During this period, Christians were preparing for the biggest of the religious holidays - Easter, thinking about the things they did wrong. It was a time for the purification of the soul. Today Lent is a time when Christians are trying to overcome their own mistakes. Few of them comply with strict fasting requirements. They try to devote more time to prayer and religious rites.
