Today is the end of the Dormiton of the Holy Theotokos fast. At the beginning of this short, two week period we celebrate the finding and elevation of the precious and life giving cross of our Lord. In the middle we celebrate the Transfiguration of our Lord on Mt. Tabor, and today we commemorate the falling asleep and translation of the Mother of God into heaven. This is a momentous fast. I hope the blessings of it fall abundantly upon us all.
