sample Lent title graphic

This is a Christian themed coordinated web set I created based on the symbolism associated with Lent.  Traditional symbolism of Lent is the wooden cross, a purple robe, nails, thorns, and palm branches.  All these elements come from the story of Jesus's final entry into Jerusalem through his suffering during crucifixtion on the cross.  Lent traditionally lasts 40 days.

Above you see a sample of how a web page title could be inserted into the Lenten title image created for this set.  A blank of the title clip art is in the .zip file below.  If you don't have a graphic program capable of inserting a page title, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.  Below you will find the Lent cross, robe, palm and thorn graphic divider and palm bullet designed for this page.  Lenten coordinating navigation graphics that could be placed at the bottom of each page if appropriate are also included.

Lent palm bullet Sundays celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, therefore, the six Sundays that occur during Lent are not counted as part of the 40 days of Lent, and are referred to as the Sundays in Lent.  The number 40 is connected with many biblical events, but especially with the forty days Jesus spent in the wilderness preparing for His ministry by facing the temptations that could lead him to abandon his mission and calling.  This season of the year is equal only to the Season of Advent in importance in the Christian year, and is part of the second major grouping of Christian festivals and sacred time that includes Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost.

Lent palm bullet The color used in the sanctuary for most of Lent is purple, red violet, or dark violet .  These colors symbolize both the pain and suffering leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus as well as the suffering of humanity and the world under sin.  Purple is also the color of royalty, and so anticipates through the suffering and death of Jesus the coming resurrection and hope of newness that will be celebrated in the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Lent palm bullet Lent has traditionally been marked by penitential prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  Christian churches that observe Lent focus on it as a time of prayer, especially penance, repenting for failures and sin as a way to focus on the need for God’s grace.  It is really a preparation to celebrate Easter, and the resurrected life that Christians live and hope for.

Lent palm bullet Many modern Protestants consider the observation of Lent to be a choice, rather than an obligation. They may decide to give up a favorite food or drink (e.g. chocolate, alcohol) or activity (e.g. going to the movies, playing video games) for Lent, or they may instead decide to take on a Lenten discipline such as devotions, volunteering for charity work, and so forth. Roman Catholics may also observe Lent in this way, in addition to the dietary restrictions Catholicism still outlines, though observation is no longer mandatory under the threat of mortal sin.
