On the eve of the first day of Great Lent—Forgiveness Sunday, March 10, 2019—a video message by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon was released, in which the faithful—and especially the Church’s youth—are invited to enter Great Lent in the spirit of forgiveness that characterizes the season.

In addition, a series of video reflections by Metropolitan Tikhon once again will be available weekly throughout the lenten season.  The weekly reflections will highlight themes found in the Triodion hymns sung on Tuesdays of each week during Great Lent.  The series will be released at the beginning of each week through the lenten season.

It is our hope that the faithful, and especially our youth, will find these video reflections edifying in this year’s “journey to Pascha.”
