In honor of the celebration of Pentecost, we thought you might enjoy a closer look at a lovely Dove goldwork emblem. May it always remind us of the fulfillment of God’s promise.
St. Peter in Acts Chapter 2:
17 ‘And in the last days, it will be,’ God says, ‘that I will pour out my Spirit on all people, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 And I will perform wonders in the sky above and miraculous signs on the earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke. 20 The sun will be changed to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes. 21 And then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
May we always remember to pray:
O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved. Amen.
Wishing everyone a joyous celebration of the Feast of Pentecost.
Soli Deo Gloria
This little dove is a hand embroidered applique that is ready to be applied to a vestment or altar hanging. The Dove is made from an assortment of goldwork threads such as bullion, passing thread, and purlpearl. The feet and nimbus rays are made from embroidered threads. This little dove is heavily padded to create a high relief. The size is 4.5″ x 7″ which is a bit wide for a stole, but perfect for use in a quatrefoil frame for use on a chasuble or used on an altar hanging.
