On Sunday, June 23, 2013 all the Christians of the byzantine rite celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity. In the Cathedral of Transfiguration of the Lord of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church Canonical Bishop Vasyliy of Fastiv ministered a solemn Mass.
Each sincere Christian feels the special joy of this holiday. Our God and Savior Jesus Christ over a period of 3 years was walking with His disciples, teaching them, making the miraculous healings and resurrections by the power of the Most High God, by the power of the Holy Spirit. In the last days of His life on the earth God promised His disciples that when He go to His Father, he would send them the Consoler - the Holy Spirit (John 14:26). And it happened on the 50th day after the Resurrection - the Holy Spirit came to the earth with the great power in the form of fire, divided into the tongues of fire and touched each of the disciples of Jesus Christ. And they felt the great power inside, went out on the streets where a great amount of people from different countries gathered, and started to preach about Jesus Christ, the Kingdom of Heaven in different languages. The Heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit told by their mouths. This miracle the God Father made for the request of His Son Jesus Christ. Twelve disciples of Jesus Christ accepted the Holy Spirit and became the Apostles of His Divine Church. Since that moment they had the power to forgive and absolve from the sins, to heal and call the Holy Spirit for their followers. These holy sacraments took place and take place now, spreading through the world over a distance and through time up to our days.
In the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church Canonical the canonical Episcopal succession line from the Saint Apostle Peter is preserved. And today with the will of the Heavenly Father and by request of His Son and our God Jesus Christ, the God's Fire of the Holy Spirit descends through bishops of our Holy God`s Church during the sacrament of ordains. The Holy Spirit says and teaches through the God`s priests and makes the God`s Will on the Earth that each person who accepts the teachings of Jesus Christ be saved and get the eternal life. Amen.
