Eleventh Week After Pentecost

August 5, 2015
Pre-Festive Day of the Transfiguration

Let us go forth to welcome the Transfiguration of Christ * and joyfully celebrate in anticipation of the feast, proclaiming: * “The day of divine gladness has arrived! * The Master ascends Mount Tabor to shine forth the beauty of His divinity!” (Troparion - Tone 4)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Today all mortal nature radiates divinity * by the divine Transfiguration; * crying out with gladness: * “Christ is transfigured, saving us all!” (Kontakion - Tone 4)
