Pentecost Green

NLM has an interesting post on the use, by some Byzantines, of green as the liturgical colour of Pentecost. This reminds me of the lovely Postcommunion in the (EF) Roman Rite, about the inpouring of the Holy Spirit; the inward sprinkling of His dew; and the fecundity this brings.

You won't be surprised to be reminded that Bishop "Trautmann" objects strongly to all this stuff about the Dew of the Spirit.
