Beloved in Christ,
We have passed the 40 days of Pascha and now walk with the the Saviour and Apostles to the Garden of Gethsemane in preparation for the awesome Ascension of our Lord. In Ascending in the flesh to the Right Hand of the Father, our flesh which was stained, is again restored to the pure image for which it was intended.
Very soon we will gather in Jerusalem and await in a mystical fashion the coming of the Holy Spirit. Though these events happened once in time, we are to memorialize them unto the end of time as a most wise and salvific reminder that our God has not and will not abandon His children.
