HOLY PENTECOST: The Descent of the Holy Spirit - 06/24/16

The great feast-day of Holy Pentecost, 50 days after Pascha, was on Sunday, 19 June 2016. In his annual archpastoral letter commemorating this holy day, Archbishop Michael writes, in part: "The gift of the Holy Spirit that we have received is not a static one, but a transforming and sanctifying power leading human beings to accomplish the will of God. The Church’s leaders are exhorted: 'Take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you guardians, to feed the Church of the Lord' (Acts 20:28). This 'gift' of the Holy Spirit is given to both the clergy and the laity who belong to the true Church – in the Sacrament of Chrismation, our personal Pentecost, following Baptism (our personal Pascha)."
