Orthodox Spiritual Life
The holy mystery of the day
of the Holy Spirit, Pentecost, is to be understood in the following manner: the
spirit of man must be completed and perfected by the Holy Spirit, that is, it
must be sanctified, illuminated, and divinized by the Holy Spirit. This holy
mystery is realized continually in the Church of Christ
and because of this the Church is really a continuous Pentecost.... From Holy
Pentecost, the day of the Holy Spirit, every God-like soul in the Church of Christ is an incombustible bush which
continuously burns and is inflamed with God and has a fiery tongue within it.
