WARNING! Triodion starts in 3 weeks
I was looking ahead on the calendar for the next few Sundays and to my surprise and also to my satisfaction, we start Triodion on February 5!
We have just taken leave of Theophany. The Christmas gifts are still being appreciated and though there is no snow right now, the weather has been getting colder again to make it seem like winter! Now, in three weeks time we will begin the preparation for Lent which prepares us for Pascha.
That's what I love about the Church calendar. It keeps you on your toes and does not allow you to be complacent about repentance for too long!
I guess I had better start preparing "Do thou open for me the Gates of Repentance" for Orthros!
