Holy Week Varia: Minnesota, Chicago, Rome, Genoa and Holy Thursday in the Ambrosian Rite, Sormano

As we approach the conclusion of the Octave of Easter this weekend, my intent is -- again, barring anything truly unique and spectacular -- to now wrap up our photo montage from Holy Week with this post. I want to thank all of those who sent photos in, including those whose photos we weren't able to use this year, and I want to encourage you to continue to submit your photos for these and other events in future.

Holy Thursday in the Ambrosian Rite, Sormano

Many of our readers will no doubt be interested in the following photos of the Holy Thursday liturgy from the parish church of Sormano within the archdiocese of Milan -- which is to say, according to the Ambrosian rite (in this instance, the modern Ambrosian liturgy).

Aside from some of the visibly distinctive elements that many will already recognize, such as the cappino worn around the back of the neck -- a 'descendent' of the appareled amice -- many will no doubt also notice that the colour used on this day is not white, as per the Roman liturgy, but rather red.
