Theophany Celebrations in Echmiadzin

Some beautiful pictures from the new style celebration of the Lord's Nativity and Theophany yesterday at the seat of the Armenian Orthodox Church in Holy Echmiadzin can be found here. (The Armenian Rite is the only rite in the Orthodox Church to have preserved the older custom of celebrating the Lord's Nativity and Theophany together on the same day.)

Pictured is Catholicos-Patriarch Karekin II (Nersessian) of Echmiadzin blessing the waters after yesterday's festal Divine Liturgy.
