What is Sexagesima Sunday?

What is Sexagesima Sunday? According to, "Sexagesima Sunday is the second Sunday before the start of Lent, which makes it the eighth Sunday before Easter. Traditionally, it was the second of three Sundays (Septuagesima is the first and Quinquagesima is the third) of preparation for Lent."

Got all that? Now we just call it "Ordinary Time."
