The Red Furnishings

Pentecost, the Kingdom season and other Saints' days

The red altar frontal

The red antependium The red design for Pentecost depicts a (very stylised) descending dove to which the response is the tongues of flame. As in all the antependia, it is God's action which provokes the response from his creation.

The seven flames embroidered in outline on the upper part of the antependium (right) may be taken to represent the seven churches to which the Book of Revelation is addressed.

The seven flames

The red pulpit fall The design of the red pupit fall also depicts seven flames
