Sacrament of Matrimony in the Extraordinary Form: Feast of St. Joseph

Photos by Ms. Claire Navarro

On the Feast of St. Joseph last March 19, 2009, Ms. Maria Rosita Bumanglag and Mr. Vincent Dinoso exchanged their vows in the Sacrament of Matrimony according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, the Antipolo Cathedral. The wedding ceremonies used the customs inherited by the Philippine Church from Spain. The Traditional Latin Nuptial Mass was celebrated by Father Michell Joe Zerrudo and assisted by the servers of the Ecclesia Dei Society of St. Joseph. Congratulations and best wishes to Ochie and Vince!

Now that is what I call a church well suited for a TLM. If you observe, traditional church architecture and TLM complements each other which my mother described as feeling like your in heaven. Compare that to the happy-clappy mass we have nowadays, makes sense why modern church architecture is constructed this way. No pun intended please, just my observation.

It was a very beautiful wedding. The rites were taken from the Toledo Manual. I was really overjoyed to witness for myself the very rites that were used on my parents' wedding in 1967. The ceremonies were more oriented towards the Lord unlike many weddings today wherein the center of attraction is the romance of the couple. I am just sad that even pop love songs have crept their way into the modern liturgy. Very minimal attention is given to the mystery of Christ and the Church in weddings today. That is why I appreciated this particular wedding. It was a sacrament in the truest sense of the word.

Sayang, kakaingit naman. I was already planning to have a wedding like that in St. Jerome this year, with all the details. Hehe, maybe God will be giving me, the next girl to be my destined wife. Et clamor meus ad te veniat.

Instavrare Omnia In Christo,

I have some questions.

When were the old marriage rites replaced in the Philippines? Does the current marriage liturgy here somehow still maintain some of the old customs?
I have read somewhere that the Philippines followed the old Mozarabic marriage rite. Is/Was this true?
