What is the Lent about?

In a few words, generally. The Great Lent is a period of preparation for Easter, the time of fasting, the time for spiritual shift, for movement. It is said to be the period of test and exercise.
Fasting is a means: you forgo certain food, on the other hand, you refuse or linit certain things to leave space for something better, refuse one thing for the other, the more important one. As for the Church calendar, through the Lent the major events of the Gospels are remembered and relived, revived in the hearts and minds of the believers.
(This was an attempt to say a few words about what the Great Lent is. Based on what I read and some thoughts of mine.)
