Let us approach Pentecost, the great and last feast, trusting that the Lord Jesus Christ will not forget us, but will visit us and send us the gifts of His goodness. As He says Himself in His Gospel: ‘If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?, that He may lead them

‘into the land of uprightness. Having the Lord’s promise and His truthful word ‘as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, let us surrender to the earthquake of the energy of His Spirit, shaking off the scales of sin and the corruption of death so that, with our whole heart turned to the Lord, we may also receive the ‘burning and refreshing’ gift of our Great God, which will lift us from things temporal and deceiving to things eternal and true. Then we will know that we are children of the Heavenly Father and that He has prepared for us a great inheritance, the Kingdom of Heaven.
