For our final Christmas photopost, we are glad to welcome some of our friends from the Eastern Catholics Churches. We start, however, with a great example of a medieval custom being revived, in this case, by the ICKSP at their oratory in Wausau, Wisconsin; the triptych over the high altar is kept closed during the Advent season, and opened at the Midnight Mass. (They do the same for Lent and Easter night.) Our next photopost will be for the ceremonies of Epiphany, and a reminder will be posted tomorrow. As always, our thanks to everyone who sent these in.St Mary’s Oratory
