aka: Do I deny that Vatican II ever happened to the Church?
I read this accusation from the fans of Bishop Chito Tagle in Facebook. They were obviously reacting to this post of mine.
Well, sorry to pop your conspiracy bubble, fans of Bishop Chito!
But I am not. I am no sedevacantist, am no follower of the SSPX.
Here is who I am...
(drum roll please!)
I AM A FILIPINO CATHOLIC.
BORN AND RAISED IN THE PHILIPPINES.
BAPTIZED, CONFIRMED, ABSOLVED FROM MY SINS, RECEIVED FIRST HOLY COMMUNION, MARRIED USING THE REFORMED LITURGY AND NOT THE PRE-CONCILIAR RITES.
I GREW UP PRAYING THE ORDINARY FORM OF THE MASS.
BUT NOW I AM MOSTLY INCLINED TO ASSIST IN AN EXTRAORDINARY FORM OF THE MASS AND ASSIST WHEN MY PARISH DUTIES ALLOW ME.
I AM A 4TH DEGREE KNIGHT OF COLUMBUS AND A HIGH RANKING COUNCIL OFFICIAL.
I AM ALSO A MEMBER OF THE APOSTLESHIP OF PRAYER.
MY PARISH DOES NOT EVEN CELEBRATE THE LATIN MASS BUT I ASSIST IN THE NEW MASS.
I EXPRESS MY FILIAL DEVOTION TO THE VICAR OF CHRIST, THE SUCCESSOR OF ST. PETER, POPE BENEDICT XVI, GLORIOUSLY REIGNING BISHOP OF ROME, WHO ALONG WITH THE BISHOPS IN COMMUNION WITH HIM, SHEPHERD THE PEOPLE OF GOD WHOM HE HAS REDEEMED WITH HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY.
AND I HOLD THAT THE SECOND VATICAN ECUMENICAL COUNCIL IS A LEGITIMATE COUNCIL!
So to the fans of Bishop Chito Tagle...
Try sitting in one of his classes in LST,especially when he talks about the Mass and the Eucharist and you'll see what I mean. Radically different from what he said in the recent International Eucharistic Congress.
PS: Damn my sources chickened out and would not want to bring my recorder to one of Bishop Chito's classroom lectures. Maybe someone read my post! HA!
