Historic Mass in Metro Manila

After the historic Mass in the Cathedral of Cubao last Saturday, another Mass will make its way to the annals of the churches in Metro Manila, the church in Cubao in particular.

On January 28, Monday, at 8:00 AM at the Parish of the Lord of Divine Mercy, His Excellency Bishop Camilo D. Gregorio, Prelate of Batanes, will celebrate Low Pontifical Mass according to the Missal of 1962, better known as the "Tridentine Rite"

This will be the first-ever Pontifical Tridentine Mass to be celebrated in Metro Manila by a Catholic bishop in full communion with the Holy See ever since the Novus Ordo was promulgated in 1969.

Bishop Camilo Gregorio, as Bishop of Bacolod from 1987 to 2001, established the Traditional Latin Mass in that diocese in the early 1990's.

He also attended and celebrated Mass for the Sixth Proceedings of the CIEL in 1999, where he gave a talk entitled "A Pastoral View of the Ecclesia Dei Communities"

A sweet moment for Bishop Gregorio who defended Tradition and upholded orthodoxy.
