Assumption 2015 Photopost - Part 1

The best of our photoposts are the ones which show not only the beauty, but also the variety and the great richness of our liturgical practice, and the many submissions which we received for the Assumption this year are an especially good example of this. We have Masses of the feast in the EF and OF, as well as the EF vigil Mass, processions, Benediction, a new priest’s first Mass, three Pontifical Masses, the traditional blessing of the herbs, with a bit of the Eastern Rites. The photos have come in from all over the world, and we have enough to make two posts out of them; the second will appear tomorrow. Our thanks and best wishes to all those who sent them in - Evangelize though Beauty!
