PENTECOST: Archpastoral Letter from Archbishop Michael - 06/02/15

His Eminence, Archbishop Michael has issued an Archpastoral Letter to the faithful of the diocese for the Feast-Day of Holy Pentecost celebrated on 31 May 2015. In part, he writes: "I pray that on this Pentecost all of us will open ourselves to the coming of the Holy Spirit; that we will not simply recite by rote: 'O Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere present and fillest all things; Treasury of blessings and Giver of life:  Come and abide in us, and cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls, O Good One.' Rather, as we offer this prayer, may we fervently entreat the Holy Spirit to permeate our very being – and enable us to be changed into even better Orthodox Christians. May He guide us to know Christ ever more richly, serve Him ever more faithfully, and become each day ever more and more like the One Who loves us more than we love ourselves."
