Epiphany 2019 Photopost (Part 2)

Our last photopost for the Twelve Days of Christmas completes the round of Epiphany blessings with two of gold, frankincense and myrrh, one in the Philippines, and one at the FSSP’s new apostolate in my native city, Providence, Rhode Island. As always, we are grateful to everybody who took the time to send these photos in; the next photopost will be for the very end of the Christmas season on Candlemass. Evangelize through beauty!

The Divine Liturgy of St Basil on the morning of Theophany, with the Great Blessing of the Water, followed by a procession around the outside of the Church. The procession is done for the parish’s patronal feast day; at each corner of the church building, a brief Gospel passage was read to symbolize the duty of the parishoners to go out and preach the Gospel.
