The '''Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy''' is celebrated on the first Sunday of [[Great Lent]]. It is the celebration of the victory of the [[iconodule]]s over the [[iconoclasm|iconoclasts]] by the decision of the [[Seventh Ecumenical Council]]. Therefore, the service is to commemorate the restoration of [[iconography|icons]] for use in services and private devotional life of Christians.
Services often include the [[clergy]] or the [[faithful]] triumphantly processing around the church, holding icons of their [[patron saint|patron]] or parish saints. In areas where multiple [[jurisdiction]]s exist (such as the United States), [[Pan-Orthodox]] [[Vespers]] are also usually celebrated in the evening.
