TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD

The feast of the Transfiguration is one of the twelve principal feasts of our Church, having a one-day pre-feast and a seven-day post-feast. This feast falls during that time when the fruits of the earth reach maturity. From the earliest times in the Eastern Church, on this day fruit is blessed in thanksgiving to God for the first0fruits of the earth. This custom was adopted by the Christian Church from the Old Testament which prescribed that fruit be brought to the Temple of the Lord. In the Book of Exodus we read: “You shall carry the first-fruits of the corn of your ground to the house of the Lord your God.”
The custom of blessing the first fruits in church was prescribed in the Canons of the Holy Apostles at the end of the third century. The Apostolic Constitutions of the fourth century have a prayer for the blessing of first fruits. The local Synod of Carthage in the forth sixth rule gave prescriptions concerning the first fruits that are brought to church. The Sixth Ecumenical Council spoke of the blessing of the firs fruits of grapes and wheat. In the Typicons century and in the Typicon of Evergetes Monastery of the tenth century no mention was made of the blessing of the vine, that is, grapes.
In Greece, in the month of August grapes and wheat, which are the more important fruits, reach their maturity, for this reason, the custom of blessing the grapesand ears of wheat in church on the feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord prevailed there. In Rus-Ukraine, grapes of the vine were replaced by apples and other fruits.

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary Light is requested to burn this week August 5 – 12 by Charles Drazba in memory of The Carpa Family.

ALTAR CANDLES: The Altar Candles will burn for all services in the month of August in honor of Helene Sirak 89th Birthday requested by her daughter Michaelene Ostrum & Family.

MANY OPENINGS: There are many dates opened for the Sanctuary Light requests. The donation for the candle to burn one week is $15. Your intentions can be in honor of someone, in memory of a loved one or any special occasion. Fill in the list in the vestibule for your intentions.

TREE rEMOVAL: We wish to thank and appreciation the $25 from an anonymous donator for the help in the price of the tree removal.

TREE DAMAGE: As it was announced last week, the severe storms we had caused much local damage. The trees on our property, way in the back by the hall, fell on the home of 315 Stephanie Drive.

If you can possibly donate toward this project it will certainly be appreciated.

The intruders got in through one of the side doors; all the envelopes were emptied and the cash and checks taken, the poor box broken and the candle holders in the vestibule damaged.

Please pray for the safety of our church. If you submitted a check last week, you may wish to notify your bank.
