I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified
-- St. Paul, I Corinthians 2:2
I have a question.As I understand it, there is a octave of Pentecost. Wouldn't that make the liturgical color red until the vigil mass of Trinity Sunday (which is traditionally white)?Although I much prefer green for the website, as red is a very hard background color to read against.
Steven:There used to be an Octave for Pentecost, but no longer.
In the interests of greengrowing things, I hope there is some rain in store for your area soon!Annie
Thanks for switching (my eye has recovered :))
Oooo Father - I think there are leprachauns near your blog - at least based on the color!!
It's non-traditional, but our denomination (Charismatic Episcopal Church) makes Pentecost into a season of its own, so we have red for the next 4 weeks or so. It helps emphasize Pentecost as a feast day on an equal ranking with Christmas.
The Joneses:Actually, that's not so unusual. I think Anglicans do something similar.And really, so does the Catholic Church; "Ordinary Time," theologically is all "after Pentecost" time.So why the green color, rather than red? Because, as Eastern Christian practice attests, both red and green are Pentecost colors.
I don't suppose you could make your green slightly less yellow? I'm finding it even worse than the red was...
Actually, the reason that green is the color for Ordinary Time is that it is a neutral color.
Just found your blog! Do you mind adding mine & i'll set up a link to yours?God bless
I like the lighter green better!
This has become totally boring! Yall need shaken up some. Anybody read Kathleen Kennedy's latest book? AAaaaaargh!Annie
