Troparion of the Transfiguration

You were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, * revealing as much of Your glory to Your Disciples as they could behold. * Through the prayers of the Mother of God, * let Your everlasting Light also shine upon us sinners. * O Giver of Light, glory to You. (August 6th)

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Humility is the only thing we need; one can still fall having virtues other than humility -- but with humility one does not fall.

Elder Herman of Mt. Athos
