Today is the first Sunday during Lent. We make this distinction because Sundays are not included in the season of Lent. They are never to be observed as fast days. Sunday, being the day of the resurrection, is always to be a day of feasting and celebration. Thus, Lent is never to be observed as an unbroken time of fasting. Each Sunday, we rejoice over the reality of the Savior’s victory over sin and death and the joyful certainty of life in Him. So, if you are fasting during Lent, be sure to break your fast today. This is to be a day of light and gladness, rejoice!
