 Holy Pentecost

 “If 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 shepherds and teachers.”

+St. Gregory Palamas, “On how the Holy Spirit was manifested and shared out at Pentecost”

 “Jesus tells us that His holy Disciples will be more courageous and more understanding when they would be, as the Scripture says, Endowed with power from on high (Luke 24:49), and that when their minds would be illuminated by the torch of the Spirit they would be able to see into all things, even though no longer able to question Him bodily present among them. The Saviour does not say that they would no longer as before need the light of His guidance, but that when they received His Spirit, when He was dwelling in their hearts, they would not be wanting in any good thing, and their minds would be filled with most perfect knowledge.”

+St. Cyril of Alexandria

 1.APOLYTIKION of PENTECOST (Tone 8)
 Blessed are You, O Christ our God.
 You have exalted the fishermen as all wise
 by sending upon them the Holy Spirit.
 and through them,
 You have drawn the universe into Your net
 Lover of humankind, Glory to You.

 2. SMALL ENTRANCE HYMN (Tone 2)
 Be exalted, O Lord, in Your power:
 We will sing and praise Your mighty deeds.
 Save us, O Good Paraclete,
 to You we sing, Alleluia.

 3. KONTAKION OF PENTECOST
    (Tone Plagal Fourth)
 Once, when He descended and confounded
 the tongues, the Most High divided the nations;
 and when He divided the tongues of fire,
 He called all men into unity;
 and with one accord we glorify the All holy Spirit

 1. ΑΠΟΛΥΤΙΚΙΟΝ ΠΕΝΤΗΚΟΣΤΗΣ (Ηχ. Πλ Δ.)
  Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Χριστὲ ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν,
  ὁ πανσόφους τοὺς ἁλιεῖς ἀναδείξας,
  καταπέμψας αὐτοῖς τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον,
  καὶ δι' αὐτῶν τὴν οἰκουμένην σαγηνεύσας,
  φιλάνθρωπε, δόξα σοι. 

 2. ΕΙΣΟΔΙΚΟΝ ΠΕΝΤΗΚΟΣΤΗΣ (Ηχ. Β)
  Ὑψώθητι, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ δυνάμει σου,
  ᾄσωμεν καὶ ψαλοῦμεν τὰς δυναστείας σου·
  Σῶσον ἡμᾶς, Παράκλητε ἀγαθέ,
  ψάλλοντάς σοι· Ἀλληλούϊα.     

 3. ΚΟΝΤΑΚΙΟΝ ΠΕΝΤΗΚΟΣΤΗΣ ( Ηχ. Πλ. Δ)
  Ὅτε καταβὰς τὰς γλώσσας συνέχεε,
  διεμέριζεν ἔθνη ὁ Ὕψιστος·
  ὅτε τοῦ πυρὸς τὰς γλώσσας διένειμεν,
  εἰς ἑνότητα πάντας ἐκάλεσε, 
  καὶ συμφώνως δοξάζομεν
  τὸ πανάγιον Πνεῦμα
