“Wearing of the Red” for Pentecost Sunday

As many who attend or watch various sporting events, it has become a common practice for spectators and sports fans to wear the home team color as way to show their support. In recent years many parish communities have adopted a similar practice of encouraging parishioners to wear some type of red attire to Masses on Pentecost Sunday as way to display our Catholic faith pride.
The color red symbolizes the Holy Spirit descending as tongues of fire upon the disciples at 
Pentecost (Acts 2:3). Similar to St. Patrick’s Day that has become synonymous with the “wearing of the green”, numerous parishioners here have suggested Pentecost as an occasion for “wearing of the red”. This idea is being passed on for your consideration of church attire with next weekend being Pentecost Sunday.
