Feast of Mid-Pentecost

At Mid-feast give Thou my thirsty soul to drink of the waters of piety;  for Thou, O Saviour, dist cry out to all:  Whosoever is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.  Wherefore, O Well-Spring of life, O Christ our God, glory be to Thee--Apolytikion of the Feast, plagal tone 4

As we have drunk of the new drink of Pascha and are reminded of the eternal drink that Christ promised to the Samaritan woman at the well (which is commemorated this Sunday, the fourth Sunday after Pascha), so let us prepare to drink of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, whom the Lord promised to His disciples, at Pentecost to be filled with the Lord and his bounty.
