The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him". When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear". (Matthew 17)

The Protection of the Theotokos - October 1

The Protection of the Mother of God is one of the most beloved feast days on the Orthodox calendar. This feast celebrates the appearance of the Theotokos in the 10th century. A group of people saw the Mother of God during a vigil in the church where her relics were kept. The Theotokos knelt down in prayer in the center of the church, her face washed in tears. She took her veil off and spread it over the people as a sign of protection.

At this time, the people of the city were being threatened by a barbarian invasion. After her appearance, they were spared from bloodshed and suffering. The feast of the Protection of the Most-Holy Theotokos is celebrated on October 1st.

Today the faithful celebrate the Feast with joy illumined by your coming, O Mother of God. Beholding your pure image we fervently cry to you: “Encompass us beneath the precious veil of your protection; deliver us from every form of evil by entreating Christ, your Son and our God that He may save our souls”.
