The Feast of the Epiphany


The Church celebrates today the Feast of the Epiphany, naming it as the Epiphany because the LORD JESUS was baptised by submerging in the river Jordan as it is said (Mat 3:16) “And Jesus, when He had been baptized, went up immediately out of the water.”  Also because Baptism is a stain (in the Latin language is Baptism), and because Baptism is burial with the LORD JESUS (Col 2:12) “buried with Him in baptism,”.
We notice also that the Baptism pond in the Monasteries that are from first centuries is large and deep to accommodate the submerging the and The Epiphany Feast is characterised by the prayer on the water which is conducted also in the Feast of the Apostles and the Thursday of the Covenant.
Every Epiphany Feast and you are all well .
