The '''Sunday of St. Gregory Palamas''' is the Second Sunday of [[Great Lent]]. It commemorates St [[Gregory Palamas]] (+1359) .
Spiritual theme==Each of the Sundays of Great Lent has its own special theme. This Sunday’s theme is that men can become divine through the grace of God in the Holy Spirit . It was St. Gregory who bore witness that by [[prayer]] and [[fasting]] human beings can become participants of the uncreated light of God's divine glory even in this life.
This Sunday was originally dedicated to St [[ Polycarp of Smyrna]] ([[ February 23]] ). After his glorification in 1368, a second commemoration of St Gregory Palamas ([[November 14]]) was appointed for this Second Sunday of Great Lent as a second ''Triumph of Orthodoxy''.
