Red Paraments—Altar Frontal and Veil The altar frontal vividly portrays the tongues of fire which the account of the first Pentecost (Acts 2:3) describes as a manifestation of the Holy Spirit coming to the Apostles. The cream-colored underskirt sets off and frames the bright oranges and reds of the main panel.

The chalice veil repeats the same flame motif.
