With the Sundays after Pentecost, we have entered the "ordinary" time of the Church Year. As our Lord and His Apostles point out, the time is short, the end is near, and we live in anticipation of the new heavens and earth, the revelation of the Kingdom of God. "Therefore...what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God...be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless" (2 Peter 3:11-12, 14).
The First Sunday after Pentecost is All Saints; the Second Sunday after Pentecost is All Saints of America. "There is no greater proof of the existence of God than the lives of the saints" (Metropolitan of Nafpaktos Hierotheos). We live in this world as people called out of darkness into light, from death to life, from unbelief to faith, hope, and love in Christ. We live as icons (i.e., images) of the one, only, and eternal God: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Through the prayers of the Birthgiver-of-God (Theotokos and Ever-virgin Mary) and all the Saints, let us commend ourselves, each other, and all our life to Christ our God.
