Exaltation of the Cross Photopost 2019

As always, our thanks to everyone who sent these photos of their liturgies celebrated on the Exaltation of the Cross. The post is small, but contains a lot of different things; two relics of the True Cross, the Byzantine Rite, a new priest’s first Mass, and a recent Requiem. Our next photopost set will be for All Saints and All Souls; a reminder will be posted at the end of October. Evangelize through beauty!

St Patrick’s Church – New Orleans, Louisiana
This church has just instituted a daily Latin Mass, but has had a weekly Mass in Latin continually since 1967, one of the very few such places anywhere in the world. The new pastor, Fr Garret O’Brien, celebrated his first Mass as pastor this summer, on the feast of the Precious Blood.
St John the Baptist Greek-Catholic Church – Minneapolis, Minnesota
Divine Liturgy of the Feast
Vespers of the Sunday within the Afterfeast; in the Byzantine Rite, there are special liturgical texts for the Saturday and Sunday before and the feast, as also for those before and after Christmas and the Epiphany. During the Afterfeast, the equivalent of a Roman octave, the liturgical color of the feast itself is used.
Divine Liturgy of the Sunday after the feast.

First Solemn Mass of a newly ordained priest, with assistant priest.
