Epiphany 2020 Photopost (Part 1)

In our first Epiphany photopost, we manage to cover most of the feast’s many liturgical bases, especially the blessing of water, which is becoming more popular with each passing year, blessings of chalk and incense, and the proclamation of the movable feasts. Our thanks to everyone who sent these in; we will definitely be doing a second post in this series, so there is time to send in yours if you haven’t already done so. ( Evangelize through Beauty!
