Assumption 2019 Photopost

First of all, I apologize to all those who sent these photos in for the long delay in getting them posted. This delay is partly due to the fact that I was traveling in the days just after the Assumption, and staying in a place with terrible internet service. In any case, once again we have a little bit of everything here - solemn Masses, blue vestments, the Byzantine Rite, plenty of processions, and the traditional blessing of flowers. As always, thanks to all those who contributed - evangelize through beauty!
