The Purpose of Lenten Prayer and Fasting

After his baptism, the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness, where He prayed and fasted for forty days and nights. Likewise, during Lent we practice prayer, fasting and acts of penance so as to become closer to God. It is part of the Divine plan to make us perfect through trials and suffering; only by carrying the Cross can we reach the Resurrection. It was precisely this part of Our Lord’s mission that the devil attacked. The three temptations were meant to divert Our Lord from His task of salvation through sacrifice; to turn Him away from the Cross.

The image of Our Lady of Walsingham which adorns the side of the pulpit in the Cathedral is a good example of this.
