DOMSE Living the Orthodox Faith in Christ
Words From Sayedna Nicholas
From the February 2023 edition of “The Light”
The Church starts the Lenten preparation by giving the faithful a gentle nudge starting with Zacchaeus Sunday, which precedes a period in the Church calendar called the Triodion, which is a progression of themes leading to Forgiveness Sunday and beyond. When we discuss Zacchaeus on a Sunday, the Church nudges us to say that Great and Holy Lent is around the corner. The Church Fathers, in their infinite wisdom as they assigned the Gospel readings to the Triodion, are alerting us to focus our minds, hearts, and even stomachs on Christ, as we will see.
