Candlemas 2021 Photopost (Part 2)

As always, many thanks to our readers who shared their beautiful photos of Candlemas ceremonies with us, continuing the good work of evangelizing through beauty. It is especially encouraging to see so many young people serving and attending the traditional Mass.

This cope was rescued by a member of the parish from a convent in Belgium that closed about 10 years ago. It was probably made in France towards the end of the 19th century, the period when Pope Leo XIII promulgated the feast of the Holy Family. The hood depicts a scene in St Joseph’s workshop, in which he is teaching carpentry to child Jesus while Our Lady is busy working with yarn, and angels furnishing tools for the project. The orphreys on the front panels depict Ss John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, Catherine of Alexandria, Margaret of Scotland, Lawrence, and an unidentifiable female saint.
Tradition will always be for the young!
