Midfeast of Pentecost — May 9, 2012

In the middle of the fourth week of the Paschal Season, the middle day between Pascha and Pentecost is solemnly celebrated. It is called the MIDFEAST, at which Christ, “in the middle of the feast” teaches men of His saving mission and offers to all the “waters of immortality”. (John 7:14) Again we are reminded of the Master’s PRESENCE and of His saving PROMISE: “If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink.” (John 7:37) We look back to Pascha and we look forward to Pentecost. We know that we belong to the Kingdom of Christ.
