Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Mass Photopost 2021 (Part 2)

For our second Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Mass post, we have photos from four different countries, including Spain, where the feast of the Immaculate Conception is traditionally celebrated with blue vestments. Special kudos go to the photographers of the Rorate Masses here! There will definitely be at least two more posts in this series, so there is always room for more - please send photos to, and remember to include the name and location of the church, and any other information you think important. Prope est jam Dominus; venite, adoremus!
