Lent means to transform us into conformity with Christ in the flesh and in the resurrection. So the Lenten sojourner witnesses the transfiguration of Christ, and thus is enabled to enter into a deeper understanding of the Paschal Mystery for one’s self. Thus, a significant milestone in the Lenten walk with Jesus is attained. Lent calls us to change, or rather let the Spirit be at work in us to change us.
