The Apostle’s Fast

The twelve apostles formed the inner core of the Lord Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry. They were personally chosen by the Lord Himself, had the power of working miracles, and were inspired to teach and to do extraordinary mission work. On the Feast of Pentecost the Holy Spirit came down on the apostles and they became great, giving witness with the power of the life and death and the resurrection of Lord Jesus as He declared they should. “When the Bridegroom shall be taken from them then they shall fast.” (Matthew 9:15)

The Apostles’ Fast is the oldest fast and the first one kept by the Christian Church. During the Apostles’ Fast, the Holy Spirit spoke to them, “As they ministered to the Lord and Fasted the Holy Spirit said separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.” (Acts 13:2-3)

Pentecost

Pentecost, the feast on which the Holy Spirit descended like tongues of fire upon the Holy Apostles and other disciples of our Lord in the Upper Room is celebrated on June 12. In the Book of Acts is said, “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come; they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.

Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4)

The Ascension of Lord Jesus Christ

In His divinity, He is everywhere; He does not ascend nor descend. In the Liturgy of Saint Gregory we say “And You ascended into the heavens in the body.” This ascension is evidence that His Glorified Body is not subject to the earth’s gravitational laws and also of His Divinity. He ascended before His disciples as they were watching. This scene strengthened their faith because the Lord not only resurrected using His Divine power, but He also ascended into heaven in front of them.

Exodus of Saint Mary and Lord Jesus Christ

Our Lord Jesus Christ came to the land of Egypt on June 1 when He was two years old. The Angel of God appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Rise up, take the child and His mother, and depart to the land of Egypt and remain there until I tell you.” (Matthew 2:13)
