Today is Pentecost...

...which may be my favorite Feast Day.

No, not because it is the founding of the Church, or the coming of the promised Holy Spirit, or any of those other good, theological reasons.

I love Pentecost because my church gets out the Bat Signal paraments.

We have several large banners that feature a circle with a cutout of a descending dove on a red background. I know one of the dear church ladies probably saw didn't want to waste perfectly good felt and thought that it would look nice. But when you first look at it, if you aren't thinking dove, it looks just like the Bat Signal.

It makes me laugh every year.
