Epiphany 2018 Photopost (Part 2)

As promised, the Byzantine Rite arrives in force for our second Epiphany photopost, including some photos from a church we have never shown before, the Greek-Catholic cathedral of Athens. Our thanks as always to everyone who sent these in - evangelize through beauty!

St Peter Eastern Catholic Church - Ukiah, California

Tradition is always for the young!
St Stephen the First Martyr - Sacramento, California (FSSP)
I visited this church many years ago, before it was given a complete top-to-bottom restoration. It was originally built as a Lutheran church in the late 1960s, not so much ugly as featureless. It’s almost hard to believe that it looks like this now.

St Margaret Mary - Oakland, California (ICK)

Holy Trinity Greek-Catholic Cathedral - Athens, Greece
Blessing of the Water celebrated by Bishop Manuel Nin, Apostolic Exarch of Greece

St Mary, Star of the Sea - Jackson, Michigan

Ss Cyril and Methodius Oratory - Bridgeport, Connecticut (ICK)

St John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Our Lady of the Assumption - Stafford, Pennsylvania

Santa Maria della Consolazione - Milan, Italy (Traditional Ambrosian Rite) 

Although we have published a great many articles on the Ambrosian Rite over the years, and shown a great many photos of it, I believe this is the first time we have ever shown this custom: the thurifer kisses the altar as he goes around it during the incensation at the Offertory.

St Joseph Oratory - Detroit, Michigan (ICK)

Holy Innocents - New York City

St Louis - Tallahassee, Florida

A temporary profession of promises by a new lay Carmelite.
