The Season of Mercy | Zemene Astem'hiro
In our church this season from Hidar 6 util Tahsas 7 or 13 is known as Zemene Astem’hro. Astm’hiro comes from the Ge’ez word “mehare | መሐረ’ meaning the merciful, forgiveness season. During this time we remember God’s mercy towards us, that he does not retain our sins and He is near to mercy, slow to wrath. The church prays to God for her children's sins to be forgiven, and teaches the believers to forgive each other Matthew 6:14-15. The Sunday’s within this season named by St Yared.

The first Sunday is Astme’hiro, the other Sundays’ name are familiar with the those of the Lent season, it should be noted that the readings, teachings and the mezmur’s sung are different.
