Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

TransfigurationAugust 9, 2020
Sunday After the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ


You were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, * showing Your glory to Your Disciples as far as they were able to bear it. * Through the prayers of the Mother of God, * let Your everlasting Light shine also upon us sinners. * O Giver of Light, glory to You! (Troparion - Tone 7)

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

You were transfigured upon the mountain, O Christ God, * and Your Disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could receive it, * so that when they would see You crucified, * they would understand that You suffered willingly; * and they would preach to the world * that You are truly the radiance of the Father.(Kontakion - Tone 7)

The icon is of the Transfiguration (August 6th).
