When He came down and confused the tongues,
The Most High divided the nations;
but when He distributed the tongues of fire,
He called all people to unity.
Therefore, with one voice we glorify the most-Holy Spirit.
Kontakion of Pentecost
Please forgive my absence from the blog for the last few days. I have been conducting a youth retreat at a monastery in South Carolina and have been away from computers (and several other amenities). I’ll catch things up tomorrow evening. Thank you for your patience. A good feast of Pentecost (Troitsa) to all of you!
