Feast of Pentecost

 

Icon of Pentecost

O Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere present and fillest all things, Come and abide in us, cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls, O Good One!

 

On Sunday, June 3, we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost (see Acts 2). This is the culmination of the Great Fifty Days (Pentecost) beginning with our Lord’s Resurrection. He has taken our human nature as his own, died for our sins, risen victorious over sin, Satan, and death, ascended triumphant to reign at the right hand of the Father, and now, as He promised, sends the Holy Spirit to teach us all things and bring to our remembrance all things He has said to us (St. John 14:16-26). Come and celebrate this glorious feast with us!
