Except from Archimandrite Sergius' Letter...
"The gift of Pentecost is the fulfillment of the promised hope given so long ago by
the Prophets and all the Old Testament Righteous. Let us receive this gift, plowing our
heart with our trials and temptations, making soft its ground so we might be able to be
watered with the “living water” that the Lord gives to those who love and obey Him.
Rejoicing in this present mystery, we extend our festal greetings and love to you this day
and every day. Be assured of our prayers, spiritual support and concern for you and your
family. We ask you for your prayers and thank you for all the love you continue to show
to America’s oldest Orthodox Monastery."
