The Transfiguration of the Lord ( 19.08.2005 )





On the day of the Holy Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy in the monastery of the Most Holy Theotokos Eleusa in Veljusa. The monastery, town and village churches in the Strumica diocese today were too small to hold the faithful who came on this feast day to receive the Holy Mysteries of Christ.















“The Transfiguration was not some kind of a phenomenon, limited in time and space; there did not occur any change for Christ at that moment, nor did it occur in His human nature, but there was a change in the spiritual sight of the apostles, who for some time were enabled to behold Their Teacher the way He was, shining in the eternal light of His divinity.” (Hagiographic volume, P.G.)
