Prophylactic self-isolation for Lent quotation. Day 16th.

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. Lent is marked by fasting, both from food and festivities. From Religions – Christianity: Lent – BBC

Jesus fasted during his time in the wilderness, and so Christians identify with his suffering by abstaining from particular foods during this time, including meat, fish, milk and egg products. From The Story of Lent | The Children’s Society

Nature gives us all, but its yearly birth in spring time, for birds’ nesting, wild animals to have a possibility joyfully play in their forests, should be respected. By abstaining from particular foods like slaughtered animals, fish, milk and eggs, humankind shows respect to Mother Nature and is more likely to live in harmony on this Planet. During the last decades, all over the world, ignorance and disrespect to Nature has grown into enormous scale.

If not forced by Nature like this year 2020, spring time should always look like this, like self-isolation and peaceful time with yourself and your family: no idle sitting at cafeterias and restaurant, no festivals, no concerts, no festivities at this time! Give a short breathing-space for slaughtered all-year-round animals, for drugs’ overdosed poultry, for the rivers and lakes…

And… what is Easter for us? Buying/selling MORE slaughtered animals and eggs than during Lent time? Buying/selling plastic chicks for table decoration and folding plastic eggs into plastic wrap for children?…The sad story we having within decades…

It’s probably Lent time…
