As always, our thanks to all those who sent in photos for Laetare Sunday and the feast of St Joseph. We also received from Northern Ireland some photos of a Mass for St Patrick’s Day, and a nice image of a Cross decorated for the Third Sunday of Lent in the Byzantine Rite, the Sunday of the Veneration of the Holy Cross. (Please do keep in mind that NLM is always very happy to receive and publish photographs of liturgies not covered by specific photopost requests.)
