All Saints and All Souls 2020 Photopost (Part 3)

Our final All Saints and All Souls photopost really shows the incredible richness of our Catholic liturgical tradition; we have an abundance of black vestments and memento moris, the traditional vigil Mass of All Saints, double Vespers on November 1st, the proper All Saints and All Souls of the Dominican Order, lots of relics, and a Pontifical Requiem with the Absolution at the catafalque. As always, we are very grateful to everyone who sent these in, contributing to the important work of evangelizing through beauty!
