Today, on this first Sunday after Pentecost, we celebrate the memory of All Saints. Why today?

It is with great joy that we Orthodox celebrate today, through the Descent of the Holy Spirit, the establishment on earth of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Christ

Today, on this Sunday before Pentecost, we honor the memory of the 318 Holy Fathers of the First Ecumenical Synod, who met in Nicaea, which is in Bithynia in 325 AD.

Today’s Gospel describes an unprecedented miracle of the Lord; the healing of a beggar born blind.  Of course, people have been cured of various disabilities and illnesses, but a person born blind?

As we heard in the Gospel, a Samaritan woman met Jesus at the well of Jacob and asked Him, Where should we worship God, in Jerusalem or Mount Gerizim?  The Lord replied:  The place does not matter, but what is most important is how we worship God.
