Fr. Seraphim Holland preaches on the Monday of the Holy Spirit. You must have practical in order to have spiritual. Actually, you must do practical things in a spiritual way in order to truly become spiritual. The Gospel of St. John was read during the Paschal period, ans after Pentecost and now we are trying to apply the grace of the Holy Spirit in our life in practical ways. Therefore, we are beginning to read the Synoptic Gospels starting with St. Matthew, we can see everywhere that they are a practical application of living spiritually. The selection today is a good example. We see practical examples of how to stave off arrogance and indifference, and a feeling of insignificance, and anger.
