Once again, we are very grateful to everyone who sent in their photographs of liturgies celebrated on the Immaculate Conception. We begin with two of the most recently established American apostolates of the FSSP, in Providence, Rhode Island and the Philadelphia suburb of Conshohocken; both churches are dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
Our next photopost will be of both Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Masses; a reminder will be posted on Friday. (Last year, we got up to three; let’s see if we can mathc or beat that!)

Tradition will always be for the young!
