If we are talking "technical".....Isn't Lent supposed to represent Jesus's 40 days of fasting in the Desert. Then He comes into the city on Palm Sunday. So is Palm Sunday the end of Lent, which is also the beginning of Holy Week. In that case, the "Lenten Committment" is over on Palm Sunday----with of course continued fasting and abstinance on Good Friday.


Please chime in....would love to be educated in the way that BGP does so well!


Lent ends on the Thursday evening of Holy Week. Generally we think of it as ending with the Mass on Holy Thursday evening. However, all is not done as Good Friday is a day of fasting.
