In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen. Dear beloved, we remember the apodosis of the Nativity of Christ our Lord and Redeemer, and on January 19, we also celebrate the Holy Theophany of our Lord Jesus Christ, or His baptism by Saint John the Forerunner. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us. Our Most Holy Theotokos, and Saint Joseph, pray for us.
