Congratulations to Fr. Froi. Just like him I studied in Divine Word Seminary in Tagaytay City and took my M.A. in Theology there. The seminarians from Mabuting Pastol Seminary were dear friends to us Somascans and we used to stay with them for common studies, recreations and eating together. Glad to know that another DWST graduate is in-loved with TLM. LAUDETUR IESUS CHRISTUS!

Thank you so much Bro. Gerald for this post.

Hi Gerald,

I'm in deep hiatus but I am remembering always the PLDM-TLM community in my prayers.

Question lang, was Apr. 25 really a Rogation Day? In the Baronius Missal kasi, the Rogation Days were assigned for Monday-Wednesday of this Week, which is Ascension week.

Although, on Apr. 25, as well as Apr. 28 thru 30, we shall be reciting the Greater and Lesser Litanies, respectively.

-Joseph
