religious art, liturgical art, and church photography from S. Smith Photography

Day 2 of the pilgrimage to Fatima with the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius

Today we visited the Church of the Most Holy Miracle in Santarem, home of a Eucharistic Miracle.  It was a special privilege to have a Latin Mass said at this parish for two reasons:  the first being that a Latin Mass has not been said in this church for many, many years, and the second being that I was allowed to photograph the Mass despite the general prohibition of photography within the church.  Here are the results of the Sung Mass with no incense, with Fr. Eduardo Garcia as the celebrant:

In the early evening we made it to Fatima. Here is a first look of my photography of the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima

    God Bless.
