The Feast of the Theophany of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – Sunday 6 January
A reminder that the Great Blessing of the Waters will take place immediately after the Prayer Behind the Amvon, at the end of the Divine Liturgy. Please don’t forget to bring containers for Holy Water. House blessings will be scheduled in the weeks immediately following Theophany.
Theophany is the Feast which reveals the Most Holy Trinity to the world through the Baptism of the Lord (Mt.3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22). God the Father spoke from Heaven about the Son, the Son was baptized by the St John the Forerunner, and the Holy Spirit descended upon the Son in the form of a dove. From ancient times this Feast was called the Day of Illumination and the Feast of Lights, since God is Light and has appeared to illumine “those who sat in darkness,” and “in the region of the shadow of death” (Mt.4:16), and to save the fallen race of mankind by grace.
