On Monday we celebrated the Feast of the Transfiguration. In this feast we celebrate when Christ was transfigured before the disciples Peter, James and John on a mountain, tradition says Mount Tabor. Since Christ’s transfiguration almost certainly took place during the Jewish Feast of Booths (Sukkot) and became for the Church a Christian fulfillment of the Feast of Booths. Just as the Feast of Booths was a harvest celebration so after the celebration of the Divine Liturgy we have the Blessing of the Fruits which we shared together. Fr. Thomas Hopko has written an explanation of the feast you can read here to learn more about this feast.
