New Pentecost at Clapham Park

Annoyingly, I forgot to take my camera today, so I was left with just mobile phone pictures. However, it is clear that the Holy Spirit was working. If you examine the picture on the left, you will see that Fr Basden and Fr Crean OP are being visited by tongues of fire. As with many paintings of the disciples, you can see that some of the brethren are gazing heavenward while others are focussed on the immediate visible effects. (click it for a larger version) Speaking in tongues was limited to Latin and Polish but I do think that there was some evidence of the gift of prophecy.
