We've written previously about the the liturgical wisdom of Star Wars film release dates (Wars - Pentecost).
And now, with a new Star Wars film looming, it seems like a good time to take a look at the new film and see if the pattern holds.
|Film and year||US Release Date||Day of Pentecost||Pentecost is|
|Episode IV (1977)||25 May||29 May||4 days after|
|Episode V (1980)||21 May||25 May||4 days after|
|Episode VI (1983)||25 May||22 May||3 days before|
|Episode I (1999)||19 May||23 May||4 days after|
|Episode II (2002)||16 May||19 May||3 days after|
|Episode III (2005)||19 May||15 May||4 days before|
|Episode VII (2015)||18 December||24 May||208 days prior|
Hmm. One of these things is not like the other.
Actually, Pentecost of 2016 is closer to the Episode VII's 2015 release date. It's only 149 days afterward. But still, I don't see the significance of that number either.
Perhaps it's time for a new table?
|Film and year||US Release Date||O Antiphon|
|Episode VII (2015)||18 December||O Adonai|
