 Journey to Pascha 2019 no. 4 (Forgiveness Sunday)

This Sunday is dedicated to the Expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden, the beginning of their, and our, exile from God; it is also the beginning of our journey back to God, the eve of the beginning of Lent. It is therefore also known as Forgiveness Sunday.

Readings for Forgiveness Sunday: Romans 13:11-14:4 (Epistle); Matthew 6:14-21 (Gospel)

 

Let us set out with joy upon the season of the Fast, and prepare ourselves for spiritual combat.

Let us purify our soul and cleanse our flesh; as we fast from food, let us also abstain from every passion.

Rejoicing in the virtues of the Spirit may we persevere with love, and so be counted worthy to see the solemn Passion of Christ our God,

And with great spiritual gladness to behold His holy Passover.
