epiphanyA most blessed, glorious, and joyful Feast of the Epiphany/Theophany of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ to all celebrating today…

Christos Chrescajetsja… Vo Jordani!
Christ is Baptized…In the Jordan!
Buona Festa…Z’Prazdnykom!

“When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest. For the voice of the Father bore witness to Thee, and called Thee His beloved Son; and the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the truthfulness of His word. O Christ our God, Who hast revealed Thyself and hast enlightened the world, glory to Thee.”
