Lent is a season in the Christian Church which focuses on repentance, peneitance, devotion and renewal. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter. This is a total of 40 days, excluding Sundays.

Lent is commemoration of the temptation of Jesus Christ and also the Last Supper, His betrayal, arrest, crucifixion and death. Three days later, however, He was raised from the dead. This festival is called Easter.

It is a tradition in the Western churches to "give up" a pleasure or comfort during Lent.

Lent is the time for Christians to fight especially hard in their spiritual warfare against evil and worldly lusts, and to focus on the righteousness and new life we have through Christ.

In lacrosse, when the defence clears the ball to a midfielder or attackman who takes inside the box to the goal for a shot. A fast break can happen very fast and is very aggrivating for the defense.
