The Feast of Holy Theophany

On January 5th & 6th, the community of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church celebrated the Great Feast of the Holy Theophany of our Lord. On Sunday, January 5th following Divine Liturgy we celebrated Compline, the Great Blessing of the Waters and blessed the entire church (and everyone in it). On Monday, January 6th we celebrated Divine Liturgy for the Feast. The Great Feast of Theophany celebrates the Lord's baptism by John in the Jordan and the revelation of God as Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - to the world.

DAILY SCRIPTURE READINGS

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

FEASTS & LIVES OF SAINTS

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
