Feast day: January 19 (Gregorian calendar), January 6 (Julian calendar) Theophany is one of the Twelve Great Feasts. The feast is noted by the appearance of the Holy Trinity, God Father as the voice from on high, Incarnate God Son, being baptized, and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove coming down from the sky, during the baptism of the Lord. After Christ was baptized by John the Forerunner, the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove, and the words were heard: 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.' The event is reported in the Gospels by Matthew, Luke and Mark. Theophany includes 4 days of forefeast (January 15 - 18) and 8 days of postfeast. Blessing of the water starts on the previous evening and continues throughout the feast day. Troparion, Tone 1 When Thou wast baptized in the Jordan, O Lord, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest. For the voice of the Father bare witness to Thee, calling Thee His beloved Son, and the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the truthfulness of His word. O Christ our God, Who hast appeared and hast enlightened the world, glory be to Thee.
