GREETINGS FROM FATHER MIKE

As your pastor, I leave you these words from a sermon of St. Basil the Great to mediate on during this holy season of Pentecost.

FROM THE TREATISE “ON THE HOLY SPIRIT” BY SAINT BASIL THE GREAT, BISHOP

The Holy Spirit is the source of holiness, a spiritual light, and He offers His own light to every mind to help in its search for truth. By nature the Spirit is beyond the reach of our mind, but we can know Him by His goodness. The power of the Spirit fills the whole universe, but He gives Himself only to those who are worthy, acting in each according to the measure of his faith.

Simple in himself, the Spirit is manifold in His mighty works. The whole of his being is present to each individual, and yet the whole of His being is everywhere. Though shared in by many, He remains unchanged; His self-giving is no loss to himself. Like the sunshine, which permeates all the atmosphere, spreading over land and sea, and yet is enjoyed by each person as though it were for him alone, so the Spirit pours forth His grace in full measure, sufficient for all, and yet is present as though exclusively to everyone who can receive Him.

The Spirit raises our hearts to heaven, guides the steps of the weak, and brings to perfection those who are making progress. He enlightens those who have been cleansed from every stain of sin and makes them spiritual by communion with Himself. Souls in whom the Spirit dwells are enlightened by the Spirit, and become a source of light for others. From the Spirit comes understanding of the mysteries of faith, insight into the hidden meaning of Scripture, and other special gifts. It is through the Holy Spirit that we attain a likeness to God.

Reverend Michael Augustinowitz, Pastor
