Many of us from childhood have learned a basic idea about what Lent is all about. For example, we think that we do something during this Season in imitation of Christ’s suffering. This is good, as far as it goes. Our self-denial in imitation of Christ makes us more mature Christians and strengthens us for the Christian “battle” against the very real power of the Evil One, a power that is once again quite evident in our day. Therefore, the Eastern Traditions, of which we are one, have known this time as the “Great Fast.”
