'''Duminica Sfintei Maria Egipteanca''' este a cincea şi ultima [[duminică]] a [[Postul Mare|Postului Mare]].
It is the start of the last week of [[Great Lent]]. It commemorates Saint [[ Mary of Egypt]] (+522), the repentant harlot. After this week comes [[Holy Week]], the week beginning with [[Palm Sunday]].
Each of the Sundays of Great Lent has a special theme. This Sunday’s theme has three parts. * First, no amount of past sin and wickedness can keep a truly repentant person from God. * Second, [[ Christ]] himself has come '' to call sinners to repentance'' and to save them from their sins ([[ Luke]] 5:32). * Third, in Saint Mary we see that it is never too late in life, or in Lent, to repent. Christ will gladly receive all who come to him with sincere repentance, even at the eleventh hour.
