The Orthodox world is preparing to celebrate the Baptism of the Lord. It was on this day, according to legend, that Jesus Christ was baptized in the waters of the Jordan River. Since then, the tradition begins to endow the baptismal water with healing properties. In all churches today and tomorrow, the great blessing of water is performed. Water is blessed in temples and open sources. There are 3 sites with baptismal fonts in Minsk – on Komsomolskoye Lake, Drozdy and Tsnyanskoye reservoirs. Those who wish to be soused in cold water can do it already today from 6 pm.
