The feasts of the Lord: An introduction to the twelve feasts and Orthodox Christology

Metropolitan of Nafpaktos Hierotheos
Translated by Esther Williams

“If one examines all the feasts of the Orthodox Church carefully one realises that the Church wants to connect our life with Christ. The ecclesial year begins on the first of September and finishes at the end of August. At the beginning of September we celebrate the Birth of the Theotokos. It is with the Birth of the Most Holy Mother of Christ that the backwards countdown for man’s salvation starts. The ecclesial year continues with the Nativity of Christ up to Pentecost, which is the feast of man’s deification, and ends up with the glorious Dormition of the Panagia which shows the glory that a man can reach when he is united with Christ. Thus, keeping the analogy, what happened with Panagia should also happen to us. Christ should be born in our heart. We should be closely connected to Christ through the sacraments and ascetic life and thus conquer death in our personal life.”
