For a couple of days, I've been posting about my excitement about my hometown's annual procession and novena to the Blessed Mother. I took some pictures not great ones today after the Vespers service as we made the procession from the Cathedral to the chapel where she'll stay for 8 of the 9 days. I'll be updating this entry with more links and information. I'll try to compile the whole history before the Novena is done.
It was a beautiful day. Truly. Now I'm going to bed. 4:30 comes awfully fast.
