Blessed Feast of Pentecost!

Thanks to John Sonnen and The New Liturgical Movement.

The red roses are a symbol of the tongues of the fire of Pentecost that rested upon the Apostles.

What a beautiful signification of this most wonderful Feast!

Prayers and blessings to all of you from our Nazareth monastic Community!
Today is our founding day; in 1987 (The Marian Year), Bishop John Paul gave us official recognition as an association of the faithful. Thanks to the help of then, Fr. Raymond L. Burke (now Archbishop Raymond Burke, head of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome). May Bishop Paul rest in peace. May Archbishop Burke be given every grace and blessing in his mission given by our Holy Father, Pope Benedict.

A happy and blessed Feast to you all!

How beautiful! :)

Thank you for sharing this.

I met Archbishop Burke in Rome once and I think he's a really lovely person. Pope Benedict certainly knows how to choose his people :)

The guys who go up to the roof of the Pantheon and throw the petals down are a lot braver than I am. That's too high up off the ground for me!
