Journey to Pascha VI (Sunday of Gregory Palamas)

This Sunday is dedicated to the St Gregory Palamas who defended the practice of hesychasm (i.e. stillness or watchfulness) as a means to truly know God in this life. It is very much appropriate to celebrate Gregory’s memory during Lent, as the Lenten journey is very much about developing a deep and true communion with Jesus Christ our God. It is also a compliment to last Sunday because just as we celebrated the Church’s victory over the earliest heresies, this Sunday celebrates some of the more modern heresies the Church has had to contend with.

Readings for Forgiveness Sunday: Hebrews 1:10-2:3 (Epistle); Mark 2:1-12 (Gospel)

 

“As we start upon the third week of the Fast, let us glorify the Holy Trinity,

And joyfully pass through the time that remains.

Causing passions of the flesh to wither from our souls,

Let us gather divine flowers, weaving garlands for the queen of days [i.e. Pascha],

That with crowns upon our heads we may sing in praise of Christ the Victor”
