All Saints and All Souls 2019 Photopost (Part 1)

As is usually the case, we received many more photographs of All Souls liturgies than All Saints, and once again, it’s great to see that all of them have black vestments. We begin with a nice variety of things from six different countries, including a Pontifical Mass; we also include some photos of celebrations the feast of Christ the King on its date. A real bumper crop of submissions has come in, so there will be at least two more posts of them. Thanks to all those who sent these in - evangelize through beauty!
