Handmade Byzantine Icon of Pentecost.
After the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Disciples returned to the Mount of Olives and patiently waited for the Descent of the Holy Spirit, as their Lord had promised them. With this divine presence, the students became Holy Apostles and began their work throughout the world to teach the Word of God.
The feast of Pentecost derives its name from the Greek word "pentecostē" (meaning the 50th day), because it happened on the fiftieth day after the Jewish Passover. It is considered as a great celebration as it symbolizes the birth of our Church, under the protection of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
