Transfiguration of Сhrist: University Celebrates


On August 19, Orthodox Christians are celebrating the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ. This is an event described in the Gospels when Jesus was mysteriously transfigured (transformed) showing his Divine majesty and glory to the Apostles John, Peter, Jacob on Mount Tabor. The holiday has been celebrated since the IV century and is, after Easter, one of the twelve major Christian holidays.

This gospel event shows that there are two natures combined in Jesus Christ — a divine and a human ones. After all, during the Transfiguration, the divine nature of Christ did not change but appeared in His human nature.

People call this day the Savior Feast Day or the Apple Spas, the Second Spas. It is one of the major agricultural holidays, which symbolizes the end of harvest time and the end of summer.

Traditionally, on this day, people have a variety of fruits blessed, including apples, as well as rye and wheat.
