Epiphany 19 Jan 2011

Dear friends,
This picture is part of my new gallery of the most recent event in Volgograd - Orthodox Epiphany.
For the third year in a row, I have visited the Central District ceremony of water sanctification.
So the Volga waters become equal to the Jordan river waters, just for one day.
People consider this water saint water and make a triple plunge into it to have the blessing.
All of this took place today, when I am starting the gallery - on 19 January 2011.

Please take your time to see other images from this wonderful and unusual event!
