 Septuagesima - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Septuagesima (in full, Septuagesima Sunday) is the name given to the third from the last Sunday before Lent in the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches.
Some have theorized, however, that Septuagesima may have been added to the liturgical calendar to commemorate the Babylonian Captivity, which lasted 70 years (there is evidence that some early Christians began fasting 70 days before Easter, but whether that custom originated from this is not entirely clear).
Pursuant to the terms of the new liturgical calendar adopted after the Second Vatican Council, Septuagesima, Sexagesima and Quinquagesima Sundays were dropped from the Novus Ordo-based calendar and the period encompassing them was added to the installment of Ordinary Time after Epiphany.
