== Lazarus Saturday - discrepancy between Great Lent and Holy Week articles ==
 
Hi all,
 
First a big thank you to all who have made this site the treasury it is of Orthodox information.
 
It may be that the lack of meat is impacting my comprehension!, but as I was reading the Great Lent and Holy Week articles I could not reconcile two sentences:
 
Great Lent article: "[Great Lent] concludes '''on the eve of Lazarus Saturday'''..."; which I take to mean Friday -- 40 days from the first Monday of Great Lent to Friday of the Sixth Week giving the 40 Days of Great Lent
 
Holy Week article: "Great and Holy Week is the week from the conclusion of Great Lent '''on the Saturday of Lazarus'''" and "Lazarus Saturday concludes Great Lent"
 
The Lazarus Saturday article has "On the eve of the celebration of the Resurrection of Lazarus, the forty days of Great Lent are formally brought to an end at Vespers.", which seems to agree with the Great Lent article
 
Have I lost the plot? Am I misreading? Any comments/thoughts appreciated,
Ian.
