Answering questions on the spot about Pharisee and Publican

Q&A: Sunday of the Pharisee and the Publican

February 24, 2021

In this video, sisters will answer questions about the Sunday of the Pharisee and the Publican on the spot. Our lay brother Nicholas came up with some interesting questions to the sisters.

On this first Sunday of the Triodion’s pre-Lenten period, we are presented with the Lord’s parable of the Publican or tax collector and the Pharisee in Luke 18:9-14. As we begin our Lenten journey, we are reminded how the prayer of the Pharisee did not reach God while the Publican’s prayer was heard. The Pharisee’s devotions were “correct,” but, the Lord teaches, it is not enough to say the right words when the heart is not correct as well.
