Lent is a time of  preparation for the coming of Easter.
It is a time of self-examination and reflection. 
In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. 
Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God
The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness.
Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because
each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter" celebration of Jesus' victory over sin and death.
