Rorate Mass

A beautiful photo by Diane of Te Deum Laudamus of the the "Rorate Mass" at the Assumption Grotto in Detroit, Michigan.

This is a Votive Mass in honour of Our Lady for the season of Advent, celebrated by candlelight early in the morning or in the evening since Pius XII gave permission for Evening Mass.

(For those who complain about my focus on the Classical Rite, these were Novus Ordo Masses - but note the orientation: that makes a big difference!)
