Icon of the Theophany of the Lord as the centerpiece in the Holy Trinity Monastery cathedral

Greetings with the Feast of Theophany!

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

 Troparion, tone 1


Thou hast appeared today unto the whole world, and Thy light, O Lord, hath been signed upon us who with knowledge chant unto Thee: Thou hast come, Thou hast appeared, O Light Unapproachable.

 Kontakion, tone 4


“Wash you, make you clean”, says Isaiah. “Put away the evil of your doings from before the Lord. Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the living waters”:1 for Christ will sprinkle with the water of renewal those who hasten to Him in faith, and He baptizes them with the Spirit unto life that grows not old.2
