This Holy and Glorious Prophet Elijah the Tishbite, who was a prophet of the Lord in the days of Ahab, the king of Israel and defended the rights of the one God against the unfaithful people with such a strength of spirit that he prefigured not only JOhn the Baptist but even Christ himself. Written prophies do not remain, but his memory is faithfully kept, especially on Mount Carmenl.
There is a tradition to bless cars and other transportation vehicles on this feast in commemoration of when the holy prophet Elijah was taken to heaven in a fiery chariot. The blessing will take place after Vespers and Divine Liturgy for the feast.
An angel in the flesh, the foundation of the prophets, and the second forerunner of Christ, the glorious Elijah from on high sent grace to Elisha to cure sicknesses and cleanse lepers. He likewise overflows with healing for those who honor him.
Prophet and seer of the mighty deeds of our God, renowned Elijah, you stopped the rain clouds by a word. Intercede for us with the only One who loves mankind,
