Holy Thursday 2022 Photopost (Part 2)

I realized today that it has been almost two weeks since the last post in this series; this has proved to be a very busy period, but I would like to apologize to all our contributors for the long delay. This also happened last year, and the final Easter photopost was put on the vigil of the Ascension; I will do my best to be more diligent in the next several days, and finish in a more timely fashion this year! This post has some particularly interesting things: a floral carpet for the Sacrament procession, a Chrism Mass in the traditional rite, and several Byzantine churches in Sicily. As always, thank you to everyone who sent in these beautiful pictures.
