MEETING OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR
Vigil and Confession:  February 14, Friday at 6:30 p.m.
Liturgy: February 15, Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
The Meeting of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ in the temple of Jerusalem by the righteous Symeon and Anna the Prophetess. This occurred on the fortieth day after the Nativity of Christ, when the Most Holy Virgin Mary, in accordance with the requirements of the law of Moses, brought the Infant Jesus to the temple of Jerusalem in order to offer sacrifice for Her purification (though She had no need of such, having immaculately given birth without seed), for the presentation of the Infant God, and to redeem Him.

Sunday of the Prodigal Son.
Vigil and Confession:  February 15, Saturday at 6:00 p.m.
Liturgy: February 16, Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
In today's Gospel, the prayer of the publican is shown drawing God’s mercy to him. This prayer consisted of the following words: God be merciful to me a sinner (Lk. 18:13). It is worthy of our attention that God heard such a short prayer, and that it was pronounced in the temple, during the common worship services, during the reading and chanting of psalms and other prayers. This prayer is commended in the Gospels; it is set forth as an example of prayer, and it becomes our sacred duty to piously contemplate it. Read more here.

On this day we commemorate the inexorable Second Coming of Christ. The holy fathers have ordained that it be observed after the second parable of the Prodigal Son, so that no one who has learned from it of God's love of for mankind will live in laziness, saying, "God loves mankind, and when I am separated from Him by sin, I will nevertheless be restored."
