Sunrise

Today is the feast of Holy Theophany, also known as Epiphany, alson known as Denho, which means uprising or going up, a term often associated with the rising of the sun.

The grace of God has appeared,
bringing salvation to all,
training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions,
and in the present age to live lives
that are self-controlled, upright, and godly,
while we wait for the blessed hope
and the manifestation of the glory
of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
He it is who gave himself for us
that he might redeem us from all iniquity
and purify for himself a people of his own
who are zealous for good deeds.


[Titus 2:11-14]
