Video: what is Septuagesima?

And what's the point of retaining it in the Extraordinary Form?

It seems a good moment to re-post this video. See also the Postioin Paper on Septuagesima, Vigils and Octaves, here.

  1. The words septuagesima, sexagesima and quinquagesima still exist in modern Portuguese and I am always trying to find an excuse for using them but it is not easy. Perhaps something like: "For the seventieth time I have asked you to wipe your feet" = "Para o tempo septuagésima eu lhe pedi para limpar os pés" but translating that back into English might suggest you only do so during septuagesima!
