Orthodox Sunday

in the Eastern Church, is the First Sunday in Lent, to commemorate the restoration of images in 843.

In the Church of England, on the first day in Lent, usually called “Ash Wednesday,” the clergy are directed to read “the ... sentences of God's cursing against impenitont sinners.”
