Scenes from Theophany in Russia

January 5, 2008

On Theophany, the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus, the Church celebrates the manifestation of God as Holy Trinity: Christ, the Son of God, the Voice of the Father speaking, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased,” and the appearance of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. Across the world, Orthodox Churches will complete this celebration with the Great blessing of waters, carrying the good news of Christ’s victory to the waters of the world, and to all of creation.
