“When Thou wast transfigured on the mountain, O Christ our God, Thou didst reveal Thy glory to Thy disciples as they could bear it. Enlighten us poor sinners as well with Thine Everlasting Light, through the intercessions of the Theotokos, O Thou Giver of Light, Glory to Thee!”
Troparion of the Transfiguration
The name of our parish is Holy Transfiguration. The Transfiguration of Christ in many ways is the pinnacle of the Church year because following Pascha and Pentecost, we see the Glory of God shining forth from the human body of Jesus Christ. It is a promise that as human beings ourselves, we can be filled with the Light and Life of God, even in this world.
This is the faith of the Orthodox Christian Church, and this is the Mystery we participate in at Holy Transfiguration, and indeed which is offered to us every moment of our lives.
