The Geat Holy Lent (Abiy Tsome)
This Great Lent is considered the Holiest fast since our Lord Jesus Christ Himself had fasted it. During this Lent, we follow the example set by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who fasted on our behalf forty days and forty nights (Matt. 4: 2). Our Holy forefathers have taught and described this fast in many way. Some stated it is fast of transition. As Moses fasted for forty days and forty nights to secure his people's transition from the Law of conscience to that of the Tablet, So did Our Lord to bring about our transition from the Old Testament to the New One. Others called it a fast of blessing monasticism. By fasting it in complete seclusion, Our Lord blessed the life of celibacy which fathers like Elijah and St John the Baptist did live and others followed soon after. And mainly it is a fast of preparation and exemplary. Adam and Eve were chased out of the Garden of Eden because of their disobedience to God’s commandment and the need to quench their flesh. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who can do whatever He wills so just in His Word without undergoing ups and downs, has fasted to give a practical lesson to us on how to self control and overcome temptation.
