Feast Day of Theophany or Baptism of Our Lord Jesus Christ

The feast of Theophany (also called Epiphany) is the second greatest feast (after Pascha) in the Christian Calendar, celebrated on January 6 (19). Theophany is even more important than Nativity. In fact, Theophany is the fulfillment of the Nativity. At Christ’s birth, his revelation as the God-man begins.
