A Shower of Roses and the Holy Spirit

Just heard about this wonderful event!  In Rome on Pentecost, rose petals are dropped from the Pantheon’s oculus to symbolize the Holy Spirit descending on Mary and the Apostles.  One more grand event to experience that I must add to my life’s to-do list! 

The video on YouTube is a must see!  Can’t smell the roses, but it sure gives you a sense of what it must be like to be showered with sweet petals representing the sweet flames of the Holy Spirit descending upon us, enkindling and renewing out hearts.  That’s Veni Creator Spiritus being chanted in the background of the video too.  So beautiful!  There’s also a white dove that circles down at the 1.17 minute mark!  Come Holy Spirit, Come!

Here are some still images from a blog post that I found.   Enjoy!
