Orthodox Sunday,
 
in the Eastern Church, is the First Sunday in Lent, to commemorate the restoration of images in 843.   1
        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 impenitent sinners.”
