Some years ago I posted photos of the Roman firefighters on top of the Pantheon (I shot them from my apartment’s window) as they prepared to drop rose petals through the oculus on Pentecost. HERE It’s a great custom.
I received a note from one of the guys at St. John Cantius in Chicago. Not to be outdone by the gang at the Pantheon…
And go look at the great photos of people reacting to the rose petals! HERE
I wonder if they will drop white rose petals on 5 August.
