Pentecost 2018 Photopost (Part 1)

As we come to the end of the Pentecost octave and the Easter season, we wish to thank all of our readers who sent in these photos of their liturgies. We had a rather bigger response this year, so there will be a second part fairly soon. This is also, I believe, the first time we have a shower of rose petals. (Photos and videos below.) Our next photopost will be for Corpus Christi; a reminder will be posted early next week. Evangelize through beauty!
