By the grace of God, the Apostles received the Holy Spirit fifty days after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We celebrate this event by a fast-free week! Glory to God!
To quote Saint Gregory Palamas, āIf from one burning lamp someone lights another, then another from that one, and so on in succession, he has light continuously. In the same way, through the Apostles ordaining their successors, and these successors ordaining others, and so on, the grace of the Holy Spirit is handed down through all generations and enlightens all who obey their spiritual shepherds and teachers.ā
