The Transfiguration of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ is one of the
Great Feasts of the Orthodox Christian Church, which is celebrated on
6/19 August.
Our Lord Jesus had gone with three of His closest Apostles St Peter, St
James and St John to Mount Tabor, where our Saviours appearance
was Transfigured while they watched.
The two ancient Holy Prophets of God, St Moses and St Elijah,
(representing the Old Covenant Prophecies and the Law) were
clearly seen conversing with Christ, whose Face and garments had
become blindingly radiant with His Divine Glory, which amazed and
terrified the three Apostles who witnessed the scene.
His radiant splendour revealed to humanity the Glorious Divinity of our
Lord Jesus Christ, which would later enable His Apostles to fully
understand after His Ascension that He is truly the Eternal, Only
Begotten Son of God and that His Passion was voluntary and His
Resurrection demonstrated the reality of our own Resurrection and
the possibility of our Theosis our Spiritual Perfection.
The Transfiguration was vehemently debated between St Gregory
Palamas and Barlaam of Calabria.
Barlaam believed that the Divine Light that radiated from Christ was
created light, while St Gregory maintained that the Apostles had
been granted Divine Grace to perceive the Glorious, Uncreated Light
of God which supported St Gregorys larger argument that although,
as human beings, we cannot know God in His Divine Essence, we can
know Him in His Divine Energies, as He reveals Himself.
Accounts of the Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ are recorded in
the Holy Gospel of St Matthew 17:1-8; St Mark 9:2-9 and St Luke 9:28-36
as well as in the Second Epistle of St Peter 1: 16-19.
The Transfiguration took place at the time of the Jewish Festival of
Booths, and the celebration of the Transfiguration became the New
Covenant fulfilment of the Old Covenant Feast.
We now celebate the Transfiguration on 6 August, which is forty days
before the Great Feast of the Exaltation or Elevation of the Holy Cross
14 September.
Just as St Peter, St James and St John witnessed the Transfiguration of
Christ before His crucifixion so that they might know Who Christ truly is
and Who suffered for our sake, His Holy Church connects these two
Great Feasts to help all Faithful Christians understand the Divine
Mission of our Lord and know that His Suffering was voluntary for the
Love of all mankind throughout all ages.
The Feast of Transfiguration initially belonged to the Season of Great
Lent, but may have been considered too joyous for that time.
St Gregory Palamas, a great Teacher of the Transfiguration, is now
clebrated on the Second Sunday of Great Lent.

pleased. Hear Him!
And when the Disciples heard It, they
fell on their faces and were greatly
afraid.
And Jesus went and touched them and
said: Arise, and do not be afraid.
When they had lifted up their eyes,
they saw no one but Jesus only.
And, as they went down from the
mountain, Jesus commanded them,
saying: Tell the Vision to no one
until the Son of Man is Risen from
the dead.

Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in
this tent, just as our Lord Jesus
Christ showed me.
Furthermore I will be careful to ensure
that you always have a reminder of
these things after my decease.
For we did not follow cunningly devised
fables when we made known to you
the Power and Coming of our Lord
Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses
of His Majesty.
For He received from God the Father
Honour and Glory when such a Voice
came to Him from the Excellent
Glory: This is My Beloved Son, in
Whom I Am well pleased.
And we heard this Voice, which came
from Heaven, when we were with
Him on the Holy Mountain.
And so we have the Prophetic Word
confirmed, which you do well to
heed as a Light that shines in a dark
place, until the Day dawns and the
Morning Star rises in your hearts...

At that time, Jesus took Peter, James
and John, his brother, and led them
up a high mountain by themselves.
And He was Transfigured before them:
His Face shone like the sun, and His
clothes became as white as the Light.
And behold! Moses and Elijah
appeared to them, talking with Him.
Then Peter said to Jesus: Lord, it is
good for us to be here; if Thou wish,
let us make here three tabernacles:
one for Thee, one of Moses and one
for Elijah.
While he was still speaking, behold! A
Bright Cloud overshadowed them;
and suddenly a Voice came out of
the Cloud, saying: This is My
Beloved Son, in Whom I Am well

me deeply and Thy Hand presses me
down.
There is no soundness in my Flesh
because of Thine Anger, nor any
Peace in my Bones because of my

For mine iniquities have gone over my

too heavy for me.
My wounds are foul and festering
because of My foolishness.
I am troubled, I am bowed down
greatly; that I go mourning all the
day long.
For my loins are full of inflammation,
and there is no soundness in my
flesh.
I am feeble and severely broken; I
groan because of the turmoil of My
heart.
Lord, all my desire is before Thee and
My sighing is not hidden from Thee.
My heart pants, my strength fails me;
as for the light of mine eyes, it also
has gone from me.
My loved ones and my friends stand
aloof from my plague, and my
relatives stand afar off.
Those also who seek my life lay snares
for me.
Those who seek my hurt speak of
destruction and plan deception all
the day long.
But I, like a deaf man, do not hear; and
I am like a mute who does not open
his mouth.
Thus I am like a man who does not
hear and in whose mouth are no
reproofs.
For in Thee, O Lord, I hope; Thou wilt
hear, O Lord my God.

Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in
darkness, in the depths. Thy Wrath
lies heavy upon me, and Thou hast
afflicted me with all Thy Storms.
Thou hast put away my acquaintances

abomination to them.
I am shut up and I cannot get out. My

The Lord executes Righteousness and
Justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known His Ways to Moses,
His Acts to the Children of Israel.
The Lord is Merciful and Gracious,
slow to anger, and abounding in
Mercy.
He will not always strive with us, nor
will He keep His Anger forever. He
has not dealt with us according to
our sins, nor punished us according
to our iniquities.
For, as the Heavens are high above the
earth, so Great is His Mercy towards
those who fear Him.
As far as the East is from the West, so
far has He removed our
transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children, so the
Lord pities those who fear Him. For
He knows our frame; He remembers
that we are but dust.
As for man, his days are like grass; as
a flower of the field, so he
flourishes. For the wind passes over
it and it is gone. And the place
remembers it no more.
But the Mercy of the Lord is from
Everlasting to Everlasting on those
who fear Him and His Righteousness
unto childrens children, to such as
keep His Covenant, and to those who
remember His Commandments to do
them.
The Lord has established His Throne in
Heaven and His Kingdom rules over
all.
Bless the Lord, you His Angels, who
excel in strength, who do His Word,
heeding the Voice of His Word.
Bless the Lord, all you His Hosts, you
ministers of His who do His
pleasure.
Bless the Lord, all you His Works, in all
places of His Dominion. Bless the
Lord, O my soul! [2]

Hear my Prayer, O Lord. Give ear to my
Supplication! In Thy Faithfulness
answer me for Thy Righteousness
sake
Do not enter into Judgement with Thy
servant, for in Thy Sight no one
living is Righteous.
For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
he has crushed my life to the
ground; he has made me dwell in
darkness, like those who have long
been dead.
Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed
within me; my heart within me is
distressed.
I remember the days of old; I meditate
on all Thy Works; I muse on the
Work of Thy Hands.
I spread out my hands unto Thee; my
soul longs for Thee like a thirsty
land.
Answer me speedily, O Lord; my spirit
fails!
Do not hide Thy Face from me lest I be
like those who go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Thy Loving kindness
in the morning, for in Thee do I
trust.
Cause me to know the Way in which I
should walk, for I lift up my soul
unto Thee.
Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies.
In Thee I take shelter.
Teach me to do Thy Will, for Thou art
my God.
Let Thy Good Spirit lead me on a level
Path.
Revive me, O Lord, for Thy Names
sake! For Thy Righteousness sake
bring my soul out of trouble.
In Thy Mercy cut off mine enemies and
destroy all those who afflict my soul,
for I am Thy servant.

The mad command of the infidel tyrant
has shaken the Nations, breathing
forth threats and blasphemies
loathed of God. But the Three
Youths were not terrified by the
bestial terror, nor of the consuming
fire; for being together amidst the
fire blown forth by a Dewy Breeze,
they were singing: O Thou
exceedingly praised: Blessed art
Thou, God of our Fathers!
ODE 8
>We Praise, we Bless and we Worship
the Lord!
O ye Youths, equal in number to the
Trinity, Bless the Father, the God
Creator: praise the Word, Who
condescended by changing the fire
to a Dewy Breeze; and exalt more
and more the All Holy Spirit, Who
gives Life to all for evermore!

Verily, Moses having struck
horizontally with his rod, cleaved the
Red Sea and caused Israel to cross
on foot, then having struck it
transversely brought it together over
Pharaoh and his chariots -having
traced the Cross, thus symbolising
that Invincible Weapon. Wherefore,
we praise Christ our God, for He has
been Glorified.'
ODE 3
The rod is taken as symbolic of the
Mystery; for by its budding, it
designated the Priest. But now the
Tree of the Cross has blossomed
forth with Might and Steadfastness
to the hitherto barren Church.
ODE 4
I have heard, O Lord, of the Mystery of
Thy Dispensation, and have
contemplated Thy Works.
Wherefore, I Glorify Thy Godhead.
ODE 5
O Thou Thrice-Blessed Tree, whereon
the Lord Christ the King was
stretched, and through which he
who was beguiled by the Tree fell,
having been beguiled by Thee, by the
God Who was nailed upon Thee in
the flesh, Who grants safety to our
souls.
ODE 6
When Jonah in the belly of the whale
stretched forth his hands in the form
of a cross, he foreshadowed clearly
the Passion of Salvation; and when
he came out on the third day, he
symbolised the world-

And as He was praying, the appearance

His Raiment became dazzling while.
And behold! Two men conversed with
Him: Moses and Elijah, who appeared
in Glory, and spoke of His Departure,
which He was to accomplish in
Jerusalem.
Now Peter and thos who were with Him
were heavy with sleep, and when
they wakened, they saw His Glory
and the two men who stood with
Him.
And as the men were parting from Him,
Peter said to Jesus: Master, it is good

As he said this, a Cloud came and

And a Voice came out of the Cloud,
