Beavertown Blesses "Chariots"

In honor of the Prophet Elijah, the community of the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, in Beavertown, PA, blessed their "chariots" following Liturgy on July 16.

As we read in the Old Testament, the Prophet Elijah was taken up to heaven in a fiery chariot. Therefore, many Orthodox communities around the world will honor him by blessing their various modes of transportation on, or near, his feast day, July 20, with the hopes of safe travels.
