 Today, Sunday the 20th of May, is Pentecost Sunday, when the Church celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles (Acts 2:1-41). Pentecost is often regarded as the Church’s birthday because from that point on the apostles carried the message of Christ. The symbols of Pentecost are the flame, wind, and the dove, which represents the Holy Spirit. The colour of Pentecost is red and the priest wears red vestments on this day.
