O Holy St. Demetrius pray to God for us!


« on: January 18, 2012, 08:21:43 PM »



As tonight we celebrate the forefeast of Theophany, I wanted to wish a Blessed Epiphany to all of my fellow Orthodox Christians on the Julian Calendar!







When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest; for, the voice of the Father bare witness unto Thee, calling Thee His beloved Son; and the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the certainty of His word. O Christ our God, Who hast appeared and enlightened the worlds, Glory be to Thee!

I'm just back from a nice swim in the Dnieper river.  We had a nice, snowy but still festive Epiphany here!

Makes me cold just thinking about it!

Blessed Theophany to you and yours!

Happy Theophany! 

Thankfully I didn't get any marks or bruises this year as all the Russian women stampeded towards the water after it had been blessed.  I was only pushed and elbowed in the ribs a few times! Cheesy

I have to admit, those photos would be a culture shock at the churches I attend.   Women & men would never wear bathing suits (immodest) especially to a church function.   I'm not bashing at all, I mean to each their own.  BRRRR looks cold. 

Did any clergy jump in?
