A parishioner and I chatted about wearing red on Pentecost. My new pastor mentioned nothing of it last weekend, but I know we have some people who do it. One or two resident parishioners regularly appear at Mass in clothing close to the actual liturgical colors.
My friend said one year when she was pregnant with her son, the only thing in her wardrobe that fit were a pair of red shoes. They may have been old and worn or something, because they fell apart during Mass.
I know I’ve blogged on this in previous years. Wearing red or having a birthday cake for the Church: these are fun things, but they lack a certain gravitas. On the other hand, when one thinks of doves and flames, weightiness isn’t exactly the first sensation that comes to mind.
