I was wondering about the rites of the church during lent.
Firstly, I was wondering, is there any rite that changes during lent?
Like not playing the cymbals in the weekdays.
Why? Isn't fasting a joyful thing according to the church?
I know that Meghalo is joyful anwe say it the first Monday of the fast
to symbolise the church is joyful entering the fast- getting a blessing.
Why would we be not happy when the church itself is happy?
Anyways, is there any other "rite" that changes during Lent?
God bless, Pray for me,
