Orthodox believers mark Forgiveness Sunday

Orthodox believers marked the Forgiveness Sunday on 10 March. On that day churches conducted the rite of forgiveness during the Vespers in remembrance of the ancient custom of the Egyptian monks who spent forty days of Lent before Easter in the desert fully surrendering themselves to the prayers.
