The Transfiguration and Blessing of Fruits
On Saturday, August 19th, we celebrated the bright feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord.
Following the Liturgy, first fruits were blessed with holy water - calling to mind and soul the wonder of the life brought forth from the light and warmth of the sun which brings forth abundant fruit from the earth. Just as these fruits mature and ripen under the influence and blessing of the light of the sun, so too do we spiritually mature and 'ripen' under the influence and blessing of the Light of the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ.
May that Light of Christ shine brightly in all of our lives!
