Morning Prayer Service (Sexagesima)

Sexagesima: The second Sunday before Lent  and hence the eighth before Easter. Its name, formed on the analogy of Quinquagesma and Septuagesima and goes back certainly to the 6th century. It is also known in the west, from the opening words of the introit, as Exsurge Sunday.  The traditional Old Testament Lesson for this Sunday is the narrative of the Fall (Gen. 3).
