Resources for the Sunday of Orthodoxy

Sunday, February 21, 2021 is the Sunday of Orthodoxy, the first Sunday of Great Lent.

Here is the link for various resources given by God With Us Online.

Fr. Alexander Schmemann writes today’s feast:

Today is the triumph of Orthodoxy, and a hymn sung today states solemnly and simply: “This is the Apostolic faith, this is the Orthodox faith, this is the faith of the Fathers, this is the faith that is the foundation of the world.” My dear brothers and sisters, this is also our own faith. We are chosen. We are elected. We are the happy few that can say of our faith, “apostolic,” “universal,” “the faith of our fathers,” “Orthodoxy,” “the truth.” Having this wonderful treasure, let us preserve it, let us keep it, and let us also use it in such a way that this treasure becomes the victory of Christ in us and in His Church. Amen.

Let’s help each other keep our focus on Jesus for Great Lent.
