On Pentecost Sunday (20 May 2018) wear a red stole, a red scarf, a red top!
Thereby you announce your belief that the Holy Spirit lives in all of us!
| I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you for ever, that Spirit of truth whom the world can never receive since it neither sees nor knows her; but you know her, because she is with you, she is in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come back to you.(John 14: 16-18)
What the Spirit brings is very different: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5: 22-23)
In the Bible it says the “Spirit is our life” (Galatians 5: 25) and “be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5: 18).
This is one of the Joint Projects agreed between EN-RE and WAC-I at our Joint meeting in Rome on 16 March 2018.
We Are Church - Austria invited people to wear a red scarf or other red garment on Pentecost Sunday and take a picture before the church door. People in other countries joined in. We hear too that wearing red on Pentecost Sunday happens in the USA.
Next year - How about you!
"The Holy Spirit lives among us - not only at the altar"
