Orthodox Christians enter the Lent

19.02.2018

Today, Orthodox Christians enter the Lent, the time of prayers, services, spiritual and bodily feats, which ends with the triumph of the Resurrection of Christ, the Easter. The Lent is the strictest of fasts and lasts seven weeks. This year it will end on the seventh of April. Speaking about the Lent, Orthodox theologians emphasize that austerity should be expressed not so much in the right diet, as many people mistakenly believe, as in the spiritual concentration. Throughout this period, believers devote their free time and efforts to sharpening their perception of the Creator, reflecting on the meaning of life, the soul, the good and evil.
