THE GREAT IS LENT IS NEAR...
Sunday of the Prodigal Son
This is the second Sunday of a four week period before the beginning of the Great Lent. As with last Sunday’s of the Publican and the Pharisee, the theme of this Sunday is REPENTANCE, and the focus on the parable of the Prodigal Son leads Orthodox Christians to contemplate the necessity of repentance in our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
THIS WEEK’S FOCUS AS WE ARE NEAR THE GREAT LENT…
God will not accept those whose "repentance" is only outward, or where there is no real change of attitude and actions. "... Turn to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments [outward display]...." True repentance requires total mental and emotional involvement.
