Red signifies the fire of love towards God, and the shedding of blood for the faith.

Red signifies the fire of love towards God, so is the liturgical colour for Whitsuntide, the feast of the Holy Ghost, and the feast days on which the suffering and the cross of Christ is called to mind; for the feast days of the Apostles and martyrs who shed their blood for the faith out of love for the Redeemer.
