Lent is a Church rhythm meant to lead us into the heart of the gospel - the death and resurrection of Jesus. This ancient Christian season impresses on us our union with Christ. It urges us to put to death the sin and indifference in our hearts toward God and one another and enter anew into the joy of the Lord - the joy of a new life born out of a death to the old life. There is a fundamental change that must occur in order for us to experience this new life and it starts with a death on a cross.
