Rome, May 23, 2010: Solemnity of Pentecost at the Pantheon; rose petals are dropped from the open oculus at twelve o’clock noon in commemoration of the descent of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church. As the “dew” falls, the choir chants the sequence Veni Sancte Spiritus!
