We had a hiccup in our parish bulletin on Sunday.
It read Sexuagesima Sunday II. That should be Sexagesima.
The Latin word for six is sex, and 60 is sexaginta.
Sexagesimal, also known as base 60 or sexagenary, is a numeral system with sixty as its base. It originated with the ancient Sumerians in the 3rd millennium BC, was passed down to the ancient Babylonians, and is still used—in a modified form—for measuring time, angles, and geographic coordinates.
An analog clock has three hands. The short hand indicates the hour, the long hand indicates the minute of the current hour, and the thinnest hand indicates the second of the current minute. I have one in the house that runs on a battery in case there is a blackout. Because of digitalization, young students today struggle with this concept.
