It's the Feast of Pentecost today, so here's the Collect:

O GOD, who as at this time didst teach the hearts of thy faithful people, by sending to them the light of thy Holy Spirit: grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things, and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort; through the merits of Christ Jesus our Savior, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Modern heretical Christians, taking a lead from Hitler's Reichskirche, used to justify their wicked and erroneous innovations by appealing to the Holy Spirit. "National Socialism," they cried from the pulpits, "is the work of the Spirit in our age!" Latterly, we've been told, again, and again, and again, that ordaining women is the "work of the Spirit." So is gay sex, apparently, although our new pansexual pagans have mostly dropped any pretense to Christianity and rarely invoke the members of the Trinity to justify their actions.

The heretics, inflated with insane pride as they blasphemously rage against the Church, should consider this. Those who go against the Holy Spirit will be relentlessly destroyed by that same Spirit. 

God bless,

Is there a different feast EVERY Sunday? Not that I'm opposed to feasting. I BBQ'd porterhouse steaks, made twice baked potatoes and served them with a side of ranch beans and fresh, hot cheese bread.

Ideally it would have been topped by a slab of apple pie (hot) with vanilla ice cream. Even if I had the pie, I'm so full that I could not eat it.

See, I celebrated the Pentecost in my own feasting way!!

Every Sunday is a Feast, but some Feast days are greater than others.

Jealous of those steaks...

Well done on the Pentecostal celebration!

The Second Book of Conrinthians makes clear what the different gifts of the Holy Spirit and how they may manifest among believers. The errors that are highlighted in your piece certainly aren't on the list.

Couldn't agree more.
