Epiphany Photopost 2017

Even though the number of submissions for this photopost is pretty small, it manages to cover all of the many liturgical bases of the Epiphany: the blessings of water, of chalk, the rarely done blessing of gold, frankincense and myrrh (twice) the proclamation of the movable feasts, and even a couple of processions, and the Byzantine Rite. As always, thank you to all those who sent them in - Evangelize through Beauty!
