and to witness the Coming of the
Holy Spirit.

The fifty days following Pascha until the Feast of Pentecost are
known as ‘the period of the Pentecostarion.’
At the mid-point between these great Feasts of Pascha and
Pentecost, on the 25
th
day ,which is always a Wedneday, is one
of the most beloved Feasts – ‘Mid-Pentecost.’
Mid-Pentecost is as significant to the Pentecostarion as the Third
Sunday of Great Lent, which honours the Holy Cross, is to the
period of Great Lent - a Feast that helps us to focus on the
central theme of the entire Festal or Lenten period.
Whereas the mid-point of Great Lent reminds us to bear up the
Cross of Christ bravely so that we may daily die with Christ in
order to experience the Resurrection of our Lord, so also the mid-
point of the Pentecostarion Enlightens us regarding the Theme of
the Fifty Days following Pascha - the Acquisition of the Holy Spirit
Who is poured out as a Gift upon all the Faithful who partake of
the Living Water - Christ Himself.
The central theme woven throughout the period of the
Pentecostarion concerns ‘Water,” because it is also the central
theme of the Gospel of St John, which flows into St Luke’s ‘Acts of
the Apostles,’ both of which are read during the Pentecostarion.
This theme appears for the first time on Pascha itself in the Joyous
Canon of the Feast of Feasts written by Saint John the
Damascene when he invites us to "...drink a New Drink..." not
"...brought forth from a Barren Rock..." as in the Old Testament
under Moses, but which rather "...springs forth from the Grave of
Christ."
During the Paschal Divine Liturgy the Priest processes with the
Gospel and chants loudly from Psalm 67:27: "In the
Congregations Bless ye God, the Lord from the Well-springs of
Israel."
When Renewal or Bright Week is over the Church wisely sets up two
Sundays in which to abolish all doubts concerning the
Resurrection of Christ - Sunday of St Thomas and the Sunday of
the Myrrh-bearing Women, in order to ensure that we all partake
of the Living Water that only our Resurrected Lord can give.
On following three Sundays, the theme of Water is mentioned more
often - the Sheep's Pool with the Paralytic, the Well of Jacob with
the Samaritan Woman, and finally, the Pool of Siloam with the
Blind Man (born without eyes).
This festive period concerns the "Living Water" which we must
partake of so that we "...will never thirst..." for It is our Saviour
Himself Who is this Living Water, and we partake of Him through
the Baptismal Waters and the Cup of Life, which “... issued forth
4. M A T I N S H Y M N S – M I D - P E N T E C O S T – 9 M A Y 2 0 1 3
from His Side at His Crucifixion unto Remission of sins and Life
Everlasting.”
On Pentecost Sunday Divine Grace is rained upon our parched
souls and bodies so that we may be Fruitful and have a Great
Harvest: "If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink."
Finally the Pentecostarion concludes with the Feast of All Saints –
those who partook of the "Waters of Piety," which is the Harvest of
the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
The Feast of Mid-Pentecost stands in the middle of the fifty-day
period from Pascha to Pentecost as a Mighty Flowing River of
Divine Grace, which has these two Great Feasts as its Source.
Pascha and Pentecost are united in Mid-Pentecost. Without Pascha
there is no Pentecost and without Pentecost there is no Purpose
to Pascha.
The Great Horologion explains the details of the Feast: "After the
Saviour had Miraculously Healed the Paralytic, the Jews,
especially the Pharisees and Scribes, were moved to envy and
persecuted Him, and sought to slay Him, using the excuse that
He did not keep the Sabbath, since He worked Miracles on that
day.
“Our Lord Jesus then departed to Galilee. About the middle of the
Feast of Tabernacles, He went up again to the Temple and
taught. The Jews, marveling at the Wisdom of His Words, said,
'How does this Man know letters, having never learnt?'
“And Christ first reproached their unbelief and lawlessness, then
proved to them by the Law that they sought to slay Him unjustly,
supposedly as ‘a despiser of the Law,’ since He had Healed the
Paralytic on the Sabbath.
"Therefore, since the things spoken of by Christ in the middle of the
Feast of the Tabernacles are related to the Sunday of the
Paralytic that is just passed, and since we have already reached
the midpoint of the Fifty Days between Pascha and Pentecost,
the Church has appointed this present Feast as a bond between
the two great Feasts, thereby uniting, as it were, the two into one,
and partaking of the Grace of them both.
Therefore today’s Feast is called ‘Mid-Pentecost,’ and the Gospel
Reading, 'At Mid-Feast'—although it refers to the Feast of the
Tabernacles—is used.
"It should be noted that there were three great Jewish Feasts: the
Passover, the Pentecost, and the Feast of Tabernacles... “
The Feast of Mid-Pentecost is celebrated for an entire week until the
following Wednesday, making it an Eight Day Feast, during which
the Hymns of Mid-Pentecost are joined with those of Pascha.

The Church celebrates the ‘Lesser Blessing of the Waters’ on this day,
(preferably with a Procession with the Holy Cross to a water
spring).
The theme of Mid Pentecost not only invokes ‘Water,’ but even
more it honours Christ as Teacher and Wisdom as He reveals
Himself between the accounts of the Paralytic and the Blind
Man.
"Now about the middle of the Feast Jesus went up into the
Temple, and taught...Jesus answered them, and said, 'My
Doctrine is not Mine, but His Who sent Me. If any man will do
His Will, he shall know of the Doctrine - whether it be of God, or
whether I speak of Myself...'" (JOHN 7:14-30).
The Icon for Mid Pentecost depicts our young Lord Jesus teaching
the Elders in the Temple at which time He first revealed Himself as
a Teacher or Rabbi. (LUKE 2:46, 47)
Traditional Orthodox Icons depict Christ as larger than the Elders,
showing His Superior Spiritual Status.
Since our Hymns invoke and praise our Lord as ‘the Wisdom of God’
- spoken of in the Book of Proverbs -it is Traditional that all
churches named in honour of ‘Holy Wisdom’ or ‘Hagia Sophia’
celebrate their Feast on this day...

This Icon depicts St John the Forerunner - preaching to those in Hades -
and Christ, having smashed open the imprisoning Gates of Hades, pulls
the Righteous from Hades so that they may Repose in Peace in
Paradise...
Those souls who refuse to Repent their sins and receive our Lord Jesus Christ
as our Saviour, are bound and remain imprisoned in Hades where they
suffer foretastes of Hell.

Pentecost, in the midst of the
Temple, the Master of all things
stood, and speaking to the Jews,
openly censured them, for their
heavy handed daring against their

Lovingkindness, He is granting Great
Mercy to all of us who believe in
Him.
