Meditation for Sunday of the Pentecost (St. John 16:1-15 - originally posted in ICON) Gospel reading for Pentecost Sunday’s third kneeling comes from the book of St. John Ch. 16 vs. 1 -15. This passage talks about Jesus’ promise of the gift of the Holy Spirit. The word used in Greek to denote the H. Spirit in v.7 is Paracletos (paraklhtoV). RSV translates the word as ‘counselor’ and in Bible Society’s English Bible it is ‘comforter’ as also in American Standard Version. In New Living Translation, it is ‘Advocate’. In Malayalam Bible it is karyasthan (overseer of steward).

The Gospel reading for Kothine Sunday is from the Gospel according to St. John Ch.2 Vs. 1-11. This passage talks about what happened at the marriage feast in Cana in Galilee.
