Theophany of our Lord ~ January 6, 2018

When You, O Lord were baptized in the Jordan, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest! For the voice of the Father bore witness to You and called You His beloved Son. And the Spirit, in the form of a dove, confirmed the truthfulness of His word. O Christ, our God, You have revealed Yourself and have enlightened the world, glory to You!  (Troparion Hymn)
