Christmas 2023 Photopost (Part 1)

I am pleased to say that the response to our photopost request for Christmas has been very good, and there will be at least two more in this series before we move on to Epiphany. There is always room for more, so if you have pictures of Christmas liturgies which you would like to share, please send them in to This includes, of course, any Masses celebrated during the vigil and octave, parts of the Divine Office, and, as we see below here, Requiem Masses for Pope Benedict. Remember to include the name and location of the church, and any other information which you think important, and keep up the good work of evangelizing through beauty!
