When does the Pope give a public mass?
Even if cautious easing has begun in the Vatican, one remains cautious. Due to the corona pandemic, the Pope will also celebrate Mass on Pentecost Sunday in camera.
As announced by the Vatican, the service begins at 10 a.m. in St. Peter's Basilica; it is broadcast on the Vatican media. At 12 o'clock follows - as usual - the midday prayer of the head of the church.
Believers are allowed to enter St. Peter's Square for the so-called Angelus prayer, provided that they observe the current safety regulations. Francis will speak to them from the window of his study in the Apostolic Palace.
For Christians, Pentecost is the festival of the Holy Spirit and is considered the birth festival of the church. This ends the 50-day Easter period. The word Pentecost is derived from "Pentekoste", the Greek term for "fifty". The Bible understands the Holy Spirit as the creative power of all life. According to church teaching, he was sent into the world to keep the person, word and work of Jesus Christ alive.
The Acts of the Apostles tells how the disciples of Jesus "were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues" through the miracle of Pentecost. The so-called language miracle wants to point out that the preaching of the message of Jesus Christ has a cross-lingual meaning for the whole world.
Up until the fourth century, Christians celebrated not only the end of Easter on Pentecost, but also the Ascension of Christ mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles. After another feast day had developed for it, Pentecost became independent. Like Christmas and Easter, in some countries there was a second feast day, Whit Monday.
Historically, Pentecost is also a spring festival. Customs related to the growth, flowering and reawakening of nature reappear before the approaching summer. Riding through the corridors, crossing borders and processions are supposed to bring blessings to the new seeds. However, these will largely be canceled in 2020 due to the corona pandemic.
