Преславная днесь видеша вси языцы во граде Давидове, егда Дух сниде Святый во огненных языцех, якоже богоглаголивый Лука повествует, глаголет бо: собранным учеником Христовым, бысть шум, якоже носиму дыханию бурну, и исполни дом, идеже бяху седяще: и вси начаша глаголати странными глаголы, странными учении, странными повелении Святыя Троицы. Дух Святый бе убо присно, и есть, и будет: Свет, и света податель, самоблагий и источник благостыни.

Today all peoples saw a wonder in the city of David, when the Holy Spirit descended in tongues of fire, as the prophetious Luke tells us: there came a sound as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. For the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now and will be for ever: Light, giver of light, blissful and the source of bliss.
