This is rather interesting!
The entire Philippine Somaschan community has decided to learn how to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass according to the Missal of 1962!
Fr. Abraham Arganiosa CRS, who started this move, reports the development in his blog.
Good news doesn’t stop coming in for us in the Philippines.
Last Saturday morning, A Missa Cantata was sung at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Diocese of Cubao; despite the early hour (4:00 AM), more than a hundred people attended. (You can see pictures of TLM in the cathedral — one of the most beautiful in the Philippines — here).
Finally, this morning, we just had Metro Manila’s first Pontifical Tridentine Mass since 1970! For nearly an hour afterwards, the faithful mobbed the celebrant, Bishop Camilo Gregorio, kissing his ring, asking for his blessing, bringing forward their babies (yup, lots of young couples attended the Mass) and asking him to autograph their Missals. The faithful were extremely grateful to have a Bishop do this after nearly 4 decades.
Reports of Masses being scheduled or planned here and there are also coming in.
