Assumption 2018 Photopost (Part 2)

Our second Assumption photopost starts with something particularly impressive, a video of the complete Mass celebrated at the Cathedral Basilica of Ss Peter and Paul in Philadelphia. This event is organized every year by the Mater Ecclesiae chapel in Berlin, New Jersey, and always features some truly excellent music, accompanied by an orchestra. The photos below also include a Pontifical Mass celebrated by the HE Czeslaw Kozon, the bishop of Copenhagen, who will be leading the Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage to Rome this year, as well as confirmations, the blessing of flowers, and the Byzantine Rite celebrated in blue vestments. As always, our thanks to everyone who sent these in, continuing the important work of evangelizing through beauty.
