Christmas and Epiphany 2020 Photopost (Part 1)

Over the last couple of weeks, I had a serious problem with slowing down of internet service, which made it difficult or impossible to download picture files, so I am only now getting to processing your Christmas and Epiphany photopost submissions, since the problem has (hopefully) finally been fixed. There is plenty of time to send in more if you have them, whether of the OF, EF, Byzantine Rite etc., to; remember to include the name and location of the church, and any other information you think important. As always, we are very glad to include celebrations of other feasts during the season, blessings (of water, chalk etc.), and the Divine Office. Have a blessed final day of the Epiphany, and continue to evangelize through beauty!

Monastère St Benoit – Brignoles, France
During this past year, the community moved into its new home, a church first given to the Benedictine monks of the abbey of St Victor in Marseilles in 1025, then held by the Knights Templar, and later by the Knights of Malta, until it was closed at the French Revolution. This was the first midnight Mass of Christmas to be held in the church since its closure over 230 years ago. Multa cecidere quae jam renascentur!
