Transfigured with Christ

The Holy Transfiguration of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ
Troparion - Tone 7
You were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, 
revealing Your glory to Your disciples as far as they could bear it.
Let Your everlasting Light also shine upon us sinners, 
through the prayers of the Theotokos. 
O Giver of Light, glory to You!
Kontakion - Tone 7
On the Mountain You were Transfigured, O Christ God,
And Your disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could see it;
So that when they would behold You crucified,
They would understand that Your suffering was voluntary,
And would proclaim to the world,
That You are truly the Radiance of the Father!


  1. Avi and I are now caught up on your blog-- we are looking forward to a post about a certain daughter's latest barking acquisition--love you so much!!!!! -F
    beautiful music!

    1. I don't let my kids read every post...censor, please, sister!

  2. Both chants are beautiful and prayerful. Thank you for sharing them with us.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, John- I always enjoy what you post on facebook- it's always very encouraging

  3. Hopefully your DL was more "fruitful" than ours; I was so saddened by the turn out. Priest, cantor, my husband (who served), another server (little boy), his dad and sister, an older woman, and me. Yup, 8 people, 3 of them on the altar. And we only go to this parish on holy days since it's far and they don't have a DL that works with hubs' work schedule. Imagine if we hadn't gone? Sigh. On a positive note, at least we were able to unload some of our garden extras instead of them rotting. Can only eat so much at once!

    1. ours was small too- but we don't have our own church- our new poodle joined us at church- really outside in the yard- but he added to the count! ;)
