So what is Lent? (A thread)
Lent is the forty day period before Easter, excluding Sundays.
It begins today with #AshWednesday and Catholics will mark their forehead with repentance ashes. It is a day of fasting and prayer.

Lent is a period of self introspection, repentance and reconciling ourselves to the will of God. Joel 2 v 12. "Yet even now," says the Lord, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping and with mourning."

Do real owners of this religion put crosses on their faces and wear uniforms to church like the 'forced' adopters do? I have never seen a white person in a Methodist Church uniform for instance maybe I need another 40+ years to see that miracle馃槀
