Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Mass Photopost Request 2022

Our next major photopost will be for Masses on Gaudete Sunday, which is 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, for the second year in a row, we got up to five posts in this series, with a total of 230 photos from over 40 churches in twelve 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!
