Sexagesima Sunday

"Sexagesima Sunday" means we have a week and a half until Lent. Now, if this Sunday you attended the "normative rite", as the powers-that-be like to call it, you wouldn't know that. It would just be the umpteenth Sunday in common-or-garden-variety time. And then one day soon, with hardly any time to finish off that half gallon of ice cream or bring the rest of the chocolate chip cookies with almonds in to work to "share", LENT will be upon you. The traditional Roman Rite gives you fair warning.
