St. John the Baptist GOC
Divine Liturgy for the Circumcision of Christ and St. Basil the Great
Since the Mosaic Law commands that if a woman give birth to a male child, he should be circumcised in the foreskin of his flesh on the eighth day (Lev. 12:2-3), on this, the eighth day from His Nativity, our Savior accepted the circumcision commanded by the Law.
