Circumcision of the Lord

Christ is born! Христос рождается!

Today we commemorate the feast of the Lord's Circumcision, better and more delicately known historically in the West as the feast of the Holy Name of Jesus (in commemoration of the Lord's naming at His circumcision), on the eighth day after His Nativity in the flesh. A homily on the holy day can be found here. Joyous feast!
