The History and Meaning of Lent


A March 2009 Lumen Verum Apologetics lecture by Fr John Flader on the topic: “The History and Meaning of Lent”.

Fr John Flader explains how the Lenten season came about, how it has changed through history, and why the practices of Lent – such as fasting and almsgiving – exist.


Lumen Verum Apologetics was founded Robert Haddad and Arlette Bowen in 1996, and continues to hold lectures on a regular basis at St Michael the Archangel Parish in Belfield. For more information, visit the Lumen Verum Apologetics website.
