On this last Sunday before Great Lent, the last day before entering the Great Fast, the Church remembers the expulsion of Adam & Eve from Paradise. God commanded them to fast from the fruit of a tree (Gen. 2:16), but they did not obey. In this way Adam and Eve and their descendants became heirs of death and corruption. We are reminded of our need for God’s forgiveness and our hearts, minds, and spiritual efforts are encouraged to return to God in repentance.
