I made the children (and the grown ups) Pentecost Sundaes using a bed of whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of strawberry syrup, and of course a Red Hot Cinnamon “Lava Ball” as the cherry. The kids loved the fire-y kick it left on their tongues as they bit into the Lava Ball. Bluebell actually went running for more water to cool her mouth down!
To continue the celebration we sang Happy Birthday to the Church, we made an Angel Food cake covered in cool whip and tongues of fire .. hidden among the “tongues” you’ll notice there are sprinkled Lava Ball pieces all over the cake.
Before the dessert part of the meal, the girls set the table with festive red and white colors. We made ginger ale drinks with a splash of Maraschino cherries.. and for the grown ups, we enjoyed a glass of champagne with the cherry. I made sure to provide red pepper flakes to the dinner.. just for that extra kick!
For fun, we all shouted out the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. The seven gifts are found in Isaiah 11:2-3. They are fear, piety, fortitude, knowledge, understanding, counsel, and wisdom. The primary function of these seven gifts is to purify us and make us docile to the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
How did you celebrate?
