Holy Week traditions downtown
Holy Week in downtown Los Angeles is a time of celebration and tradition. Among them: the Blessing of the Animals at La Placita, where this year Archbishop José Gomez blessed white doves among other creatures, and Easter Sunday Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, with this year’s neophytes, baptized the previous evening at the Easter Vigil, celebrating as fully initiated members of the assembly.
Prayer of the MonthPapal intentions for November: That priests who experience difficulties may find comfort in their suffering, support in their doubts, and confirmation in their fidelity. That as fruit of the continental mission, Latin American Churches may send missionaries to other Churches.
Papal intentions for December: That children who are victims of abandonment or violence may find the love and protection they need. That Christians, enlightened by the Word incarnate, may prepare humanity for the Savior's coming.
