WHY DO PEOPLE FAST DURING LENT ?

LENT-FAST, PRAY, GIVE                                                                                                    Because abstinence, builds discipline, discipline makes you stronger, when you’re stronger you can fight harder for the hard times ahead. Jesus retreated into the desert for 40 days, He did this so He could get to understand himself more and know the will of God. Jesus was tempted and tested by the enemy. Jesus in his human nature, resisted and did not crumble because at his weakest point, He knew who He was- the Son of God, fully human and fully divine.  (Matthew 4:1-11)
