Christmas 2022 Photopost Request

Our next major photopost series will be for the liturgies of Christmas, whether in the Ordinary or Extraordinary Form, or any of the Eastern Rites, Ordinariate Use, etc.; as always, we will also be very glad to include other liturgical ceremonies, such as Prime on Christmas Eve, Vespers, the vigil Masses, and any liturgies celebrated during the Octave. Please send your pictures to, and don’t forget to include the name of the church and its location, and any other information which you think worth noting. Evangelize through beauty! (In the meantime, we will wrap up our record-breaking number of Rorate Mass contributions in the next few days.)

From our first Christmas photopost of last year: incensing the statue of the Infant Jesus in the manger at Prince of Peace in Taylors. South Carolina.

From the second post: the proclamation of the Birth of Christ from the Martyrology during Prime at St Mary’s Oratory, the Institute of Christ the King’s church in Wausau, Wisconsin.

The blessing of wine in honor of St John the Evangelist on his feast day, at the church of the Holy Innocents in New York City.
From the third post: solemn Midnight Mass of Christmas at St Mary’s, the FSSP church in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.

At the convent of Corpus Christi in Valencia, Spain, Eucharistic Adoration held on the last day of the year, beginning at 11:00 pm; the Te Deum was sung before midnight in thanksgiving for God’s blessings given over the year, and the Veni, Creator Spiritus after midnight to invoke His blessings for the coming year.
