All should make a sincere effort to begin the Lenten season with this service and the &ldquo;Mutual Rite of Forgiveness&rdquo;. On Forgiveness Sunday, we sing of Adam&rsquo;s exile from paradise. We identify ourselves with Adam, lamenting our loss of the beauty, dignity and delight of our original creation, mourning our corruption in sin. We also hear on this day the Lord&rsquo;s teaching about fasting and forgiveness, and we enter the season of the fast forgiving one another so that God will forgive us.<br />"If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you your trespasses. (Mt 6.14&ndash;18).&rdquo;</p> St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church http://www.stmichael-delaware-oca.org/news_170217_2.html Basics of Orthodoxy Moving to Fridays.
