Passiontide Veils and a Poll for Parishes and Priests

A couple of our readers sent in photos from their parishes; parishes which keep the tradition of veiling the altar cross and other sacred images of devotion.

Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament, Raritan, NJ, USA

St. Peter the Apostle Church, Gueydan, Louisiana

(See also here for another parish which has revived this custom as of this year.)

This provides a good opportunity for another informal poll, directed toward parishes which are primarily using the modern Roman liturgy.
