Lent and Holy Week The penitential season of Lent oon- , sists of forty fasting days, being the wee cays oi me six and one-half weeks preceding the great feast of Easter. The Sundays during this time are also a part of Lent but are not cb- . servea as days of fasting. As ex I plained elsewhere, the date of the be ginning of this season varies from year to year, according to the date of Easter. The church haa instituted it as a remembrance of the forty days fast of our Blessed Lord in the desert, and as a means of salification for her children for she has always taught the necessity of penance for justification. j Lent is called by various names in various languages. In Latin it is Quadragesima (fortieth) from which are taken, the Italian Quaresima and the French. Careme. The English name, , is from the Anglo-Saxon Lenc ten. meaning spring. v The duration of this penitential sea son has not always been the same in the different ages of the Church's his tory. We cannot assert positively that Lent can be traced back to the Apostles, but we know that some sort of fasting-time has been observed be fore from very early days. It is men tioned by Tertullian and St. Irenaeus and especially by St. Athanasius, bi shop of Alexandria who uefined that it was to be a fast of forty days; and rules concerning it were made by early councils, prescribing facting as a strict obligation. From about the fourth century it became a fast of forty days, in many parts of the world though the Greeks began it earlier than we do, ruling that there should be no fasting on the Saturdays of Lent (except Holy Saturday) and on the feast of the Annunciation. For some time the Roman church observed the fast for only thirty-six days, begin, ntng after the first Sunday of Lent; and it was not until the year 84G that a council held at Meaux, in France, added four days before that Sunday. This practice, even then, was not gen. erally followed, for as late as the eleventh century the Lenten season included only thirty-six fasting days in some parts of Europe, and this is still the case in the diocese of Milan in Italy. It is said that in very early times, there were so-called Renunciants, who subsisted on only two meals a week for no Jess than eight weeks preced ing Easter fasting strictly from the breakfast of Sunday until after Holy Communion on the following Satur day. This, however, was never an ob ligation, but merely a voluntary pen ance. Nevertheless, the Lenten Regula tions of the church were very severe espcially in the early middle ages, all flesh meat was forbidden, and for the most part, what were called "lacticin ia milk, butter, cheese, eggs, etc. . and this prohibition extended origin ally to Sundays. . On aU the fasting days only one meal was allowed and this was to be taken in the evening. However, this extreme rigor was, af ter a time somewhat relaxed, the meal could be taken' at three o'clock, the hour of noon in the Divine oOee, and this was gradually advanced to mid da? which indeed, derives its English nama on Noon from that part of th cCce.

Fire threatened Bywater's store at Portland recently. , The store was saved by the timely work of plucky derks.
