Rorate Mass Photopost 2023 (Part 6)

With the last of our annual Rorate Mass and Advent photoposts, I am very pleased to say that we have tied last year’s record for this series as far as the number of posts goes, but slightly exceeded it in the number of photos, at just over 280, coming from churches in 18 American states and 12 other countries, with many duplicates (four Canadian provinces, three locations each in England and Italy, etc.) We can all add to our other reasons for Christmas cheer the knowledge that the slow but steady work of recovering our Catholic liturgical tradition continues – feliciter!

In the meantime, there is still plenty of time to send photos of your various Christmas liturgies to; remember to include the name and location of the church, and any other information you think worth noting. Christus natus est - venite, adoremus!
