ASH Wednesday: The Lenten season starts the countdown to Easter Sunday…

Today is ASH WEDNESDAY  - the start of the Lenten season

The traditional 40-days (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter Sunday.  The ‘fasting’ during Lent is used to remind Christians of the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert fasting and praying and yes even being tempted by Satan. Recorded
in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.                          http://christianteens.about.com/od/christianholidays/p/WhatIsLent.htm
