Christmas at the Monastery

Here are four photographs taken at the vigil to celebrate Epiphany. The iconostasion with all the lamps lit. Green and red — Christmas colours. The lamp has been engraved with the Τ and Φ for Τάφος, the emblem of the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The light picks up the gilded carving of the iconostasion. The Holy Table prepared for the Archbishop to celebrate the Divine Liturgy. A multi-lobed lamp with the silver laboriously cut away, allowing the light to shine through the intricate patterns.
