Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Mass Photopost Request 2021

Our next major photopost will be for Masses on Gaudete Sunday, which is the day after tomorrow, featuring your rose-colored vestments, as well as Rorate Masses, in either Form of the Roman Rite or the Ordinariate Rite. We will be very glad to include anything else from your Advent celebrations, such as Vespers, Masses of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of Guadalupe etc. Please send photos to for inclusion, and be sure to include the name and location of the church, and any other information you think important.
Last year, despite all the terrible things that happened, including the closure of many churches for various periods, we actually got up to five posts in this series for the first time ever, with a total of 220 photos from over 40 churches in at least ten different countries. I hope you all find it as encouraging as I do to see that the worship of God, and the recovery of our liturgical tradition, continues apace, along with the good work of evangelizing though beauty!
