The Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ took place on Sunday 28 July and was presided over by His Eminence Archbishop Haigazoun Najarian who also delivered the homily of the day.
On Mount Tabor Jesus is revealed to be God’s beloved Son, sharing in the divine authority and power of the Father—and indeed equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit as one person of the Holy Trinity. “God from God, light from Light, true God from true God,” as the Nicene Creed puts it.
Jesus’ divine light empowers us, in joy and hope, to acknowledge God’s power and love for humanity: in other words, to worship him. Through the Holy Spirit, God “inspires” us, literally “breathes into us,” his infectious love. And touched by that love, generations of Armenians, along with Christians the world over, have instinctively responded with heartfelt worship: our own song of love to almighty God.
