Angels of Lent

At once the Spirit drove him out into the desert for forty days,
tempted by Satan. 
 He was among wild beasts,
and the angels ministered to him.
   Mark 1:12-13

40 Days in the Desert
The number of days of Lent - 40 - is connected to the 40 days that Christ spent in the desert, right after His baptism and right before He began His public ministry. 

The Angels Who Ministered to Christ
It would be neat to know the names of the angels who ministered to Jesus while in the desert.  They would be great angels to call upon during Lent - when we feel discouraged and tempted to abandon our intentions to draw closer to the Lord in preparation for Easter.
