What Lent means to me

imageThe 40-day season of Lent – not counting Sundays – represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and was tempted by the Devil.

Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking a season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry sacrifice and resurrection.

In each of the six weeks of Lent, we will ask what the season means to various members of staff, and next up is Gillian Coxhead, Sister / Charge Nurse in the Emergency Department, who said: “Prayer according to St. Teresa of Avila 'is nothing more than an intimate sharing between friends, spending time with Him who we know loves us.'

“Lent, for me is a special time for prayer, a time of hope and signs of new life.”
