I remember my mentors during my highschool days, why? because before holy week we are required to go to confessions of holy retreat, hence the said activities are indeed in preparation for the commemeration of the upcoming holy week. This is very important in our spiritual side, because it nurtures our soul and redeems our faith. Now, that im working i am really looking forward to attend to this said activities, they are indeed very helpful especially if you have a very busy days, its the best time to give a few hours to your spiritual life and reflect once again what you have done for the previous months, were you been good to your neighbor? or it was the other way around, at leat by being sensitive to your actions towards others, it would cultivate to a good spiritual background.

Lent Season

Palm sunday marks the start of the holy week in christian tradition, this signifies that the passion and death of Jesus Christ is ony a few days ahead. The season in our catholic faith is what we called the Lent Season, in Christian tradition, is the period of the liturgical year leading up to Easter.
The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer — through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial — for the annual commemoration during Holy Week of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events linked to the Passion of Christ and culminates in Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Conventionally it is described as being forty days long, though different denominations calculate the forty days differently. The forty days represent the time that, according to the Bible, Jesus spent in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry, where he endured temptation by Satan.[1].
This practice was virtually universal in Christendom until the Protestant Reformation.
