Epiphany 2018 Photopost (Part 1)

Last year, the number of submissions for Epiphany was small enough to cover everything in a single post; this year, we have received twice as many, so will definitely be doing a second one, and will be glad to receive more. Once again, we manage to cover most of the feast’s many liturgical bases, especially the blessing of water, which is becoming more popular with each passing year; also the blessing of chalk, the proclamation of the movable feasts, plus the Ordinariate Use and two Pontifical Masses, one in traditional Roman Rite and one in the modern Ambrosian Rite. (The Byzantine Rite will appear in the second part.) As always, our thanks to all those who sent these in - Evangelize through Beauty!
