May 2 marks the middle of the fifty day season from Pascha to Pentecost. The day is called the Mid-feast of Pentecost. On it we both reflect backwards concerning our Crucified and Risen Lord Jesus, and we anticipate even greater blessings from Christ: the coming of the Gift of the Holy Spirit. "The Jews marveled, saying, 'How does this Man know letters, having never studied?' Jesus answered them and said, 'My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority.'" (John 7:15-17; from the Gospel of the Mid-feast) God willed to save us in Christ, to give us a new and incorruptible life of the Spirit. Now we are called to want that Life, to do what God wants in Christ by the Holy Spirit. Let us hasten to do God's will which brings unspeakable peace, joy, and love!
