On Monday, August 6th, the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, grapes and various fruits were blessed at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy.
"The blessing of grapes, as well as other fruits and vegetables on this day is the most beautiful and adequate sign of the final transfiguration of all things in Christ. It signifies the ultimate flowering and fruitfulness of all creation in the paradise of God’s unending Kingdom of Life where all will he transformed by the glory of the Lord."
