This day commemorates how in the last year of His earthly life, wishing to strengthen the faith of His disciples in Himself, that it might not be shaken during His sufferings on the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ was transfigured before them upon Mount Tabor, showing them the glory of His Divinity. This is a great feast of the Lord, included in the number of the twelve great feasts.
One peculiarity of the fast of the Transfiguration is that at the end of the Liturgy, following the prayer below the Ambo, the blessing of apples and other fruits.

On this day we remember the repose of the Mother of God — which was made known to Her three days before by the Archangel Gabriel —, the wondrous arrival of all the apostles except for Thomas from all the ends of the earth, Her burial in Gethsemane, and the Lord’s taking of Her most pure body into heaven on the third day. As the Most Pure Mother of God was only in the tomb three days, and on the third day the holy apostles did not find Her most pure body there, Her death is called the Dormition; that is, ‘sleep.’ This is a great feast, and is included in the theotokian feasts of the twelve.
