Great are You, O Lord, and marvelous are Your deeds, and no word is sufficient to celebrate Your miracles.

Holy Theophany is the Feast which reveals the Most Holy Trinity to the world through the Baptism of the Lord (Mt.3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22). God the Father spoke from Heaven about the Son, the Son was baptized by the St John the Forerunner, and the Holy Spirit descended upon the Son in the form of a dove…is also known as the Feast of Lights. The Church celebrates on this day the illumination of the world by the light of Christ.The name of the Feast is Epiphany, meaning manifestation, or Theophany, meaning manifestation of God or the revelation of God.
