Fr. Michell Joe Zerrudo offered the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, according to the Missal of Blessed John XXIII, in solemnity of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Before the Holy Mass, Fr. Zerrudo blessed the candles, those brought by the community and those to be used for the Mass. The candles that were to be used for Holy Mass were later distributed to the faithful and a short procession was held.
Fr. Zerrudo before ending his sermon made emphasis on the example of our Blessed Virgin on how united she was with the Sacrifice of our Lord on the Cross"...And thy own soul a sword shall pierce," and that our active participation at Holy Mass is to unite our hearts with our Lord's suffering as that great sacrifice is made present for us in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
