Septuagesima Sunday 2020
After the story of St. Apollonia this sermon explains the meaning of St. Paul’s Epistle for this Sunday which marks a new liturgical season of Septuagesima and the beginning of the road to Easter. St. Paul warns us not to presume on our merits. The scripture readings for this week remind us of many important truths concerning creation, Adam and Eve, the fall and its consequences and the promise of a Redeemer. The Gospel shows us God’s generosity towards us even up to the last moment.
