Immaculate Conception 2019 Photopost (Part 1)

Our photoposts for Immaculate Conception usually include a few other things celebrated at the same time of the year, and this year, we begin with something unique, a celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the Byzantine Rite. We also have pictures of another celebration in the Byzantine Rite, with the head of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, and from an Apostolate of the Institute of Christ the King which we have never seen before, in Africa. For the first time, we have enough submissions to make two posts, before we move on to Gaudete and Rorate Masses, so if you don’t see yours here, they will be in the next one. As always, we wish to express our gratitude to eveyone who sent these in – evangelize through beauty!
