Reflections for the Season of Lent 2021

Lent is the annual period of preparation for Easter, which begins with Ash Wednesday on February 17 this year, and culminates with Easter Triduum, April 2 to April 4, 2021.

In the Christian tradition, Lent is a time of renewal, soulsearching, and repentance—a time for reflection while taking stock of one’s life in preparation for the 50-day celebration of Easter. This booklet is a collection of Lenten Reflections by contributors from throughout the Edgewood College community. Generally, we have included only a portion of the biblical text cited due to space constraints. We hope these reflections, based on readings in the Common Christian Lectionary, serve as a guide and a point of inspiration for you during this year’s observance of Lent.
