Sunday of Publican and Pharisee
Vigil and Confession:  February 16, Saturday at 6:00 p.m.
Liturgy: February 17, 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.
Sunday of the Prodigal Son
Vigil and Confession:  February 23, Sunday at 6:00 p.m.
Liturgy: February 24, Monday at 10:00 a.m.
This Sunday is thus called because at the Liturgy the Gospel parable of the prodigal son is read, and in the church hymns the forgiving love of his father is set forth as an example, symbolizing the limitless mercy of God towards repentant sinners. The idea of this Sunday is that no sin can conquer God’s love for man, and thus, in grieving over one’s sins, one need never fall into despair. Read more here.
