The season of Septuagesima is a preparation for the season of Lent. The season begins with First Vespers (around 6pm) Saturday, February 12th. The season comprises the Sundays and the weeks they begin of Septuagesima, Sexagesima, and Quinquagesima, as a period of preparation for Lent. The names of these Sundays roughly indicate the time before Easter.
The liturgical color is the violet of penance. Although the liturgical color is one of penance, the Lenten rules of fasting do not bind. The Gloria is omitted on Sundays and ferial days. The Alleluia verse is suppressed, also the word Alleluia verse is replaced by the Tract on Sundays and feast days.
This extended period of preparation is intended to heighten the importance of that for which we are preparing. Michael Fiedrowicz, in his book The Traditional Mass, comments, "With pastoral wisdom and empathy the Church prepares her faithful for the beginning of the season of Lent, which in turn leads into an even more intensified preparation for the feast of Easter with Passion Sunday (fifth Sunday of Lent) before the beginning of Holy Week which culminates in the Triduum Sacrum."
If you have private Mass intentions feel free to give them to Fr. Adams. Private Masses are those said in the rectory and the intention will not be published online. The intention must be submitted to Fr. Adams in writing (not email and not to Fr. van Zee). Stipends for each Mass are $10 and must be given in cash (again, not online). There will be a limit of 5 intentions per person. Once a year's worth of intentions have been received, no more can be accepted.
Since we have transitioned from using the red Missals with printed propers inserted (red booklets that were kept at the entrance with a printed insert containing the prayers and readings proper to each Mass) to the Benedictus, which contains everything for conveniently following along with the Mass, we have 18 large boxes of printed propers in the rectory that are available for free. If you would like to take a box of printed propers or all 18 of them, please arrange with Fr. van Zee or Fr. Adams to pick them up from the rectory.
