Father Abe Arganiosa, CRS TLM at Divine Mercy

The Latin Mass community of the Parish of the Lord of the Divine Mercy was honored to have Father Abe Arganiosa, CRS celebrate his 3rd Mass according to the extraordinary form yesterday morning, the 12th of April.

Father Arganiosa, whom we fondly call Father Abe, is one of the very few priests we know who desires to learn the Tridentine Mass not only out of obedience to the Holy Father, but also out of his great love and devotion for the Mass, whether it is in the ordinary or extraordinary usage. Through reading the Vicar of Christ's apostolic letter Summorum Pontificum given motu proprio, he saw its wisdom and relevance to him as a priest. Summorum Pontificum after all, as Father Zuhlsdorf would say, primarily is for priests.

Being new to TLM, it was evident that Father Abe was struggling with the rubrics, but despite of this, his enthusiasm was strong and his love and reverence to every single gesture, movements and prayer was clearly seen. Congratulations Father Abe!

A personal account of Father Abe is posted in his blog the
Splendor of the Church.

Altar Arrangement (Ordinary Form)

The New Liturgical Movement blog has posted several photographs of altar arrangements for the celebration of the ordinary form that is being reintroduced by Pope Benedict XVI. Last Sunday, the Feast of the Divine Mercy, I took a photograph of the altar in the Parish of the Lord of the Divine Mercy while the Mass in the ordinary form was being celebrated.
