A short video from the Latin Mass Society of England & Wales on the traditional season of Septuagesima, which was abolished in the Novus Ordo.

Septuagesima reminds us that we are exiles. The name recalls the 70 years of captivity which Jeremiah prophesied for the Jews in Babylon. As they refused to sing the canticles of Sion in a foreign land so the Alleluia is withdrawn where this season is observed.
