Today I received an email with an interesting liturgical note.

I was reminded that on Tuesday after Sexagesima Sunday (in other words, as I write, tomorrow 18 Feb), there was a tradition of saying a Votive Mass of the Passion of the Lord.

There were once, various Votive Masses available focusing on the arma Christi, the instruments of the Passion (e.g., nails, crown of thorns, etc.).   They were suppressed in 1961.  However, this custom has continued in various places.
