Corpus Christi 2023 Photopost (Part 6)

We finally come to the last photopost of this year’s Corpus Christi series, with one final late entry sent in just yesterday. In this season when priestly ordinations are common, we have here a first Mass, an ordination anniversary, and a priest ordained in May; congratulations to all new priests, and be assured of the continued prayers of all our readers for your ministry.
Notwithstanding the painful necessity of paring down the larger albums, we reached a total of nearly 300 photos from 30 churches in fifteen American states and six other countries, several represented two or three times. I know we will all take this as yet another encouraging sign of the ongoing recovery of our authentic Catholic liturgical traditions - feliciter! As always, thanks to all those who sent these pictures in, contributing to the essential work of evangelizing through beauty.

First Mass of Fr Paschal Pautler OSB, who was ordained the previous day.
