The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him." When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear." (Matthew 17)

"Having fulfilled Forty Days ... we ask to see the Holy Week of Thy Passion." With these words Lent comes to its end and we enter into the commemoration of Christ's suffering, death and Resurrection. It begins on Lazarus Saturday. The double feast of Lazarus' resurrection and Palm Sunday is described as the "Beginning Of The Cross" and is to be understood within the context of the Holy Week. The common Troparion of these days affirms that by raising Lazarus from the dead, Christ confirmed the truth of general resurrection. It is highly significant that we are led into the darkness of the Cross by one of the twelve major feasts of the Church. Light and joy shine not only at the end of Holy Week but also at its beginning; they illumine darkness itself to reveal its ultimate meaning. In the early Church Lazarus Saturday was called "announcement of Pascha", it announces and anticipates, the light and peace of the next Saturday—Great and Holy Saturday, the day of the Lifegiving Tomb.

Father Alexander Schmemann
