Blessing of Fruit for Transfiguration

On the Feast of the Transfiguration, we bless fruit: as Christ’s Transfiguration shows the beauty of humanity in its intended divine beauty, so we take the beautiful fruits of creation and offer them up to God, so that they may share in spiritual beauty as well. This year people brought especially abundant offerings of fruit, as can be seen in the picture.
