I don't think so. Lent like most of Catholicism is a pagan import. Want a big fat child molesting fertility God who has all the same letters in his name as Satan. See Santa. Want a pagan fertility Goddess whose worship involved temple prostitutes and pagan fertility symbols like bunnies and eggs, see easter. Want a big evergreen tree as a sign of everlasting life by which you set offerings for your pagan priests see the christmas tree. Some Catholic stuff is in the bible though. Like the pope who as a symbol of satan "is in the temple declaring himself to be god" and having the power to remit sins. The end times apostacy regarding celibates and their forbidding to eat certain meats. Oh maybe that's lent. Plus the worship of graven images, the stealing of scripture ("Satan comes to steal the Word") and other stuff. Remember observing lying vanities forsaketh your own mercy" and see New orleans for what happens to those practicing religious blasphemies and pagan abominations.
