Pentecost Sunday’s attendance was lacking in Wedding Garments

Pentecost Sunday is like a marriage ceremony, where you have the Holy Ghost joining up with the Apostles and becoming one in the mystical Body. So, Sunday you would have thought Catholics would have put on their best clothes. Many did, but sadly, the wearing of Red & White was almost non-existent. I called up friends who attended other Traditional Catholic chapel’s and got the same response. However, when it comes to St. Patrick’s day,  green is everywhere, even among non-Catholics.

The week before, our Pastor reminded us of total fast and abstinence for the vigil of Pentecost but our calendar had particle abstinence, a printing error I thought. 

Another disappointment, which for some reason I didn’t notice before, was the best gospel for that day does not appear until Pentecost Wednesday. That is Acts 2:17-20[17] And it shall come to pass, in the last days, (saith the Lord,) I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. [18] And upon my servants indeed, and upon my handmaids will I pour out in those days of my spirit, and they shall prophesy. [19] And I will show wonders in the heavens above, and signs on the earth beneath: blood and fire, and vapor of smoke. [20] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the day of the lord comes, the great and manifest day. In talking about the Great Apostasy and the end times, manifest can mean “obvious to the understanding.” 

What could be more obvious for the Lord to come back on a future Pentecost Sunday?  What’s even more coincidental we have the Full Moon on Wednesday being eclipsed by the Earth. As many of you are aware of, I have these passages on my banner, Joel 2:31 Acts 2:20 only with Apoc.12 added on for the eclipse of the Sun, which you can see on my website. In the case of Pentecost Sunday’s Mass is like wedding celebration given by a King for his son, a prince, so why are you coming to the celebration without a wedding garment on? Consider the fact it could be the last Pentecost Sunday of your life.
Grace be with you, in Christ, Joseph Saraceno
