Great Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord - 08/06/20

On August 6th the Holy Trinity community celebrated the Great Feast fo the Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The transfiguration of Christ is one of the central events recorded in the gospels. Immediately after the Lord was recognized by His apostles as “the Christ [Messiah], the Son of the Living God,” He told them that “He must go up to Jerusalem and suffer many things . . . and be killed and on the third day be raised” (Mt 16). The announcement of Christ’s approaching passion and death was met with indignation by the disciples. And then, after rebuking them, the Lord took Peter, James, and John “up to a high mountain”—by tradition Mount Tabor—and was “transfigured before them.”

Holy Week & Pascha Schedule - 04/09/20

Glory to Jesus Christ. Glory Forever!

This Sunday we celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem. On this day we celebrate Christ's victory over death as foreshadowed by His resurrection of Lazarus from the dead and His reception into Jerusalem by His believers as the awaited for Messiah and King. This day also marks the beginning of His passion, death, and resurrection on Pascha, the ultimate conquering of death by Jesus Christ Himself.

Although we remain confined to our homes we will celebrate the milestones of Christ's passion through His resurrection as always. While we will not be with one another, we can and should remember all of the events of Holy Week in our own daily lives. It is an opportunity to enter into this Holy Week in a very intimate and personally engaged way. IF we do this we can suffer and die with Christ and also experience the joy of His resurrection in each of our hearts.
