The Sunday of Forgiveness





It is the Sunday of Forgiveness, known also as Cheese Fare Sunday.

The Holy Gospel teaches us about forgiveness and fasting, and how both are crucial to our own return to Paradise.
The divine Fathers also set the anniversary of the exile of Adam from the Paradise of bliss on this day, at the entrance of Great Lent, to show us by deed as well as word how great is the benefit that accrues to man from fasting and repenting; and, on the contrary, how great the harm that comes from destructive gluttony and from disobedience to the divine commandments.
