Holy Theophany at Saint Elias Church

Holy Theophany


Holy Theophany at Saint Elias Church, Brampton, Ontario, Canada


Thus says the LORD: The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing…
Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with he recompense of God. He will come and save you.  

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame leap like a hart, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy.

For waters shall break broth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert…
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with singing, everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. Isaiah 35:1-10

Theophany is a very important Feast in the Orthodox Christian Church, even more important than Christmas. St. Elias Orthodox Christian Church in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, has a web page replete with pictures, You Tube videos, and a concise explanation of the meaning of the Feast.
