Holy Theophany: At Christ’s Baptism, the Holy Trinity is revealed: the Son, Who has taken on our human nature completely; the Father, from Whom we hear only His voice; and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. In the end, what’s revealed isn’t only ‘Who God is’, but more particularly ‘What God does for our sake’. And what He does is to become human so that we can become gods(...) The very name attributed to Christ -Emmanuel- means ‘God is with us. We have God with us.

This feast is celebrated each year on January 6 and it commemorates the Baptism of Christ and the divine revelation of the Holy Trinity. At the Baptism of Christ all three Persons of the Holy TrinityFather Son and Holy Spiritwere made manifest. Thus the name of the Feast is Epiphany meaning manifestation or Theophany meaning manifestation of God. #orthodox #liveorthodoxy
January 6: Epiphany | "Manifestation", "striking appearance" or Theophany meaning "Vision of God" also known as Three Kings' Day. A Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God in his Son as human in Jesus Christ. In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ child.
At your baptism in the Jordan O Lord, worship of the Trinity was made manifest; the voice of the Father bore witness to You, naming you the "Beloved Son" and the Spirit, in the form of a dove, confirmed the certainty of these words. O Christ God who came and filled the whole world with light, glory be to you!
