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)

Meeting of Our Lord in the Temple
Great Vespers 6:45 pm Mon Feb 1st    -    Divine Liturgy 10:00 am Tue Feb 2nd

On February second, the Orthodox Church celebrates the great Feast of The Meeting of our Lord in the Temple. The Gospel lesson for this day tells how the Mother of Jesus brought Him to the temple, as was the God-given Law of Moses. When the righteous Simeon received Christ in his arms at the temple, he knew immediately that this was the Redeemer promised by all of the prophecies. He uttered the prophetic words which form the hymn at the end of every Vespers service:
"Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy word; for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation which Thou hast prepared before the face of Thy people, a light to lighten the gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel".
This particular Feast is part of the great celebration that began forty days earlier, with the Nativity of Christ. God entered the world, taking on the "form of a servant". In the Person of Christ, He fulfilled every requirement of the Law that He Himself had given to His people through Moses. Orthodox Church in America
