Father Erwin Dela Cruz's First Missa Cantata

Rev. Father Erwin Dela Cruz, a priest from the Prelature of Batanes celebrate his first Missa Cantata according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite last Sunday, February 1, 2009. Not new to the extraordinary form, his exposure to the extraordinary form was as deacon to the Solemn Pontifical High Mass (at the faldstool) of his bishop, Most Reverend Camilo Gregorio, D.D. last September 14, 2008, and the Solemn High Mass celebrated by Rev. Father Moises Cabrera in the Parish of the Lord of the Divine Mercy in Sikatuna Village, Diocese of Cubao. He was also assistant priest to the sung masses of Bishop Camilo Gregorio in St. James Parish and St. Jerome Emiliani and Sta. Susanna Parish, both in the Diocese of Paranaque.

I'm sorry if I'm hijacking this thread, but your comment box for earlier post about the Manila Archbishop's guidelines for the TLM celebration is closed. Now this answers my question no one answered regarding the Manila Archbishop's attitude towards the TLM. With all due respect to +GAUDENCIO B. CARDINAL ROSALES, how come he could disobey our Holy Father on this and make his own rules. I hope the Vatican acts on this. Many bishops around the world object to the SSPX bishops being rehabilitated because of their supposed disobedience for defending the TLM when it was being suppresed. Now our very own bishop who is supposed to be in union with the Holy Father is blatantly disobeying him. I pray for our bishop's conversion of heart. Sancta Maria, Ora Pro Nobis.

i agree with erik...the guidelines are somewhat not really in accordance with Summorum Pontificum...it is as if Summorum Pontificum has not taken effect in the Archdiocese.....
