Assumption 2018 Photopost (Part 1)

My favorite photoposts are the ones which show not only the beauty, but also the great variety of the Catholic liturgical tradition, and the submissions which we received for the Assumption this year are a great example of this. We have Masses of the feast in the EF and OF, as well as the EF vigil Mass and the Byzantine Rite; the blessing of herbs, fruits and flowers seems to be getting more and more popular every year. We have enough to make two posts out of them; I will do the second one when I get a bit of free time in the next day or so. Our thanks and best wishes to all those who sent them in - Evangelize through Beauty!
