On the day of Lesser Blessing of Waters, the day before the great Christian holiday Baptism of Our Lord Jesus Christ and Holy Theophany, the Patriarch Moses ministered the festive prayer service and accomplished the rite of water consecration after the Sunday Holy Divine Liturgy.

"I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is
mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire." (Matthew 3:11)
