Period 6 - Transfiguration

The theme of the Transfiguration period is the transformation of the Church and the world through the work of the Apostles. Like Christ was transfigured on Mount Tabor, the Church on earth too is transfigured. On August 6th, the Church celebrated the feast of Transfiguration. The feast of the Mother of God begins on August 1st and ends with the Feast of the Assumption on August 15th.
