As always, thanks to all the readers who send in photographs of their Ash Wednesday liturgies. Our headliner is definitely a first for NLM: ash-colored vestments (couleur cendrée) from the Fraternity of St Peter’s church in Lyon, a classically medieval custom of the ancient use of Lyon. We wish you all a blessed and holy Lenten season. Our next photopost will cover the feasts of St Joseph and the Annunciation, and Laetare Sunday, which all fall within a week of each other this year; a request will be posted the week before.
Collegiate Church of St Just - Lyon (FSSP)
|Tradition is for the young!|
St Catherine Labouré - Middletown, New Jersey
Bethany House Chapel - SingaporeThis is a chapel in a home for retired priests; very edifying to see the faithful put up with a bit of crowding to attend the holy Mass on this important day!
St Stephen’s - Portland, Oregon
Parish of the Holy Redeemer - Quezon City, Philippine Islands
Santa Maria degli Angeli - Civitanova Alta, ItalyThis church has been hosting the Summorum Pontificum group of Tolentino since their church of the Sacred Heart was damaged in the recent spate of earthquakes.
