Lent is the 40-day, penitential season of preparation for Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday and ends with the Paschal Triduum. In his 2023 Lenten Message, Pope Francis said "the Lenten journey of penance" has a goal of transformation that "has its model in the Transfiguration of Jesus and is achieved by the grace of his paschal mystery."
