The Pentecost

The Great Feast of Pentecost

The spring of the Spirit hath come to those on earth, dividing noetically into fire-bearing rivers, moistening the Apostles and illuminating them. The fire hath become to them a dewy cloud, lighting, and raining flames upon them, from whom we received grace by the fire and the water. Verily the fire of the Comforter hath come and lighted the world.

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven...

Christ is Risen!


Having beheld the Resurrection of Christ, let us worship the holy Lord Jesus, the only Sinless One.
We worship Thy Cross, O Christ, and Thy holy Resurrection we hymn and glorify; 
for Thou art our God, and we know none other beside Thee, we call upon Thy name. 
O come, all ye faithful, let us worship Christ's holy Resurrection, for behold, through the Cross joy hath come to all the world. 
Ever blessing the Lord, we hymn His Resurrection; 
for, having endured crucifixion, He hath destroyed death by death.

The Church is a Hospital

Christ healing the Leper
Christ referred to Himself as a physician, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.” (Mt. 9:12)–the sick being the sinners. The Church refers to Christ as “the Physician of our souls and bodies.” And in the prayer to the Holy Trinity we say, “Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities.”
