The word “Lent” comes from the same root that gave the English language the words “long” and “lengthen”.  During Lent the light of the world gains strength, unquenchable, irresistible.  Lent, the Paschal Triduum and the Fifty Days of the Easter season – a quarter of the year – are the church’s springtime.
