The Feast of Pentecost - The Day of the Holy Trinity

Suddenly, a loud noise from Heaven filled the whole house, and tongues of fire from Heaven appeared above them, resting upon every one of them. All the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to praise God in other languages that they had not known before.

The Feast of Pentecost - The Day of the Holy Trinity

Today the Orthodox Church commemorates one of the most revered Christian feasts: The Day of the Holy Trinity, Pentecost. When the fiftieth day after Christ's Resurrection arrived, the apostles were all together in Jerusalem, prayerfully praising and glorifying God. They were waiting for the descent of the Holy Spirit, which the Saviour had revealed to them before His Ascension.

Suddenly, a loud noise from Heaven filled the whole house, and tongues of fire from Heaven appeared above them, resting upon every one of them. All the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to praise God in other languages that they had not known before.

It was a gift from Heaven which was necessary to preach the Gospel in all lands and in all the world, so that the kingdom of God, that is, the Church of Christ, would be established on earth.

This miracle of the descent of the Holy Spirit showed everyone that God is Trinity. God the Father creates the world, God the Son redeems people from the Devil's slavery, and God the Holy Spirit illumines the world through the establishment of the Church.
