Pentecost is the birthday
of the Christian Church and reveals the descent or outpouring of the Holy
Spirit on the believers in the Upper Room. (See Acts2:1-4)
The Day od Pentecost also
occurs fifty days after Passover.
Pentecost is celebrated, one should reflect on the coming of the Comforter
(Holy Spirit) to the Disciples, and the power and miracles that resulted due to
this coming, plus the need to allow the spirit to embody and empower persons
(Whitsuntide or Trinity)
The Season After Pentecost covers 10-14 Sundays. (May 25, to August 29,
The liturgical color is red for the Season After Pentecost.
Trinity Sunday is the first Sunday after the day of Pentecost. This Sunday emphasizes the three-fold
manifestation of the Godhead (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy
Spirit/Ghost): three and yet one. White
is the appropriate color.
Color: Red is symbolic of
loyalty, power, witness, Christian zeal, blood, fire, the work and ministry of
the Church, and the Holy Spirit.
