Transfiguration of Christ, celebrated by Orthodox and Catholic believers

The Orthodox and Catholic believers celebrated yesterday one of the most important Christian holidays: the Transfiguration of the Lord on Mount Tabor, when the Apostles are shown that their Master is not only God’s prophet, but a genuine God. For Orthodox believers, this is the first celebration of the Assumption Lent, due to be ended on August 15. The celebration of the Son of God offers Christians the permission to eat fish. The holiday also celebrates the prayer on Mount Tabor, when Christ’s apostles saw his true face, as brilliant as the sun. According to the Biblical accounts, Jesus was heading toward the northern regions of the Holy Country, to Jerusalem, and was talking to the Apostles about the Passions, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, awaiting him at Jerusalem.
