Laetare Sunday Photopost 2018 (Part 1)

We had a good number of submissions for Laetare Sunday this year, so there will be two photoposts this time. This one starts with something very interesting and unique from Douai Abbey in England, a vestment with pieces of 15th century embroidery, remounted in 1963 on a dark rose-colored cloth. (Special thanks to Dom Hugh Somerville-Knapman!) We also have photos of the Byzantine Third Sunday of Lent, the Sunday of the Veneration of the Cross, which might broadly be seen as the Eastern equivalent of Laetare, and a blessing of golden roses. Thanks as always to all our readers who sent these in - evangelize through beauty!
