The Feast of The Pentecost

“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord[a] in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one 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” Acts 2:1-4

Holy Passion Week

It is possible for one who fasts not to be rewarded for his fasting. How? When indeed we abstain from foods, but do not abstain from iniquities; when we do not eat meat, but gnaw to pieces the homes of the poor; when we do not become drunkards with wine, but we become drunkards with evil pleasures; when we abstain all the day, but all the night we spend in unchasten shows. Then what is the benefit of abstention from foods, when on the one hand you deprive your body of a selected food, but on the other offer yourself unlawful food?
ST. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM

St. Anthony’s Feast

Orthodox Societies: Saint Anthony The Great - Father of the Monks

 

Be humble so that God guards and strengthens you, because God looks to the humble. Be humble so that God fills you with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, because it is written that He guides the humble and teaches His ways to the meek. Be humble in order to be joyful, because joy goes hand in hand with humility.
St. Pachomius

Happy Epiphany

Holy Baptism was imparted to us by our Lord Jesus Christ through word and deed. Through deed by receiving Baptism from John in the Jordon; through word by charging his own disciples to go forth and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
