A reader has sent us a report of the January 23, 2008 Solemn High Mass according to the Missal of Blessed Pope John XXIII or extraordinary form at the Parish of the Espousal of our Lady in Mandurriao, Iloilo City in honor of the feast of the Espousal of our Lady.
He reports "...the church was full packed, the music superb and the faithful actively said all response with the aid of leaflets." To introduce and inform the parishioners about Summorum Pontificum of the Vicar of Christ, Pope Benedict XVI, Fr. Celis gave a short catechesis before the Mass.
The Celebrant is Msgr. Juanito Tuvilla, Deacon is Fr. Oscar Andrada, Subdeacon is Fr. Winnie Lusaria while Parish Priest Fr. Espiridion Celis is choir director.
Congratulations to our reader and the parishioners of the Espousal of our Lady. Congratulations and a heart felt thanks to Msgr. Juanito Tuvilla, Fr. Oscar Andrada, Fr. Winnie Lusaria and Fr. Espiridion Celis. Thank you for being priests!
