Pentecost is one of the most important holidays for Christians, though it isn’t as well celebrated because it isn’t commercialized the way Christmas and Easter are. I’m actually glad it’s simply spiritual though it would be great if more people understood Pentecost and celebrated it.
Some peace on Pentecost, the day that Christians commemorate the Holy Spirit coming down and filling believers.
I love that at the end there’s a shower of rose petals coming from an opening in the dome. Evidently, this is an ancient tradition, but I’d never heard of it.
On Pentecost St. John Cantius Church follows an ancient tradition of dropping red rose petals from above on to the congregation. I’ve never seen that done before. It’s a shame I can only watch it on YouTube tomorrow.
