Pentecost and Part of the Divine


On this day commenced the celebration of the Holy Eucharist by which we become “partakers of the Divine Nature” (II Peter 1:4).

4 By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires.

The Holy Eucharist, for the Orthodox, Anglicans and Roman Catholics, means the “breaking of bread” at the Last Supper. All Christians consider that to be the first thanksgiving and so every meal, typically supper or dinner, is a re-enactment of that tableau where we thank God for “our daily bread”.

So because of Pentecost the faithful and true can now break bread and evoke the Spirit of Christ into their meal,  giving thanks and homage once again for His sacrifice, guidance and love.
