Here is the BEFORE photo of the sanctuary of the Davao Metropolitan Cathedral.
And now look at this...
Yup, folks. I too was dumbfounded when I saw this. And I am pretty sure the liberal Caucasian missionaries in Davao would be wincing in pain at seeing a retablo rising again.
Here is the archbishop, Most. Rev. Fernando Capalla, seated on his throne.
And here is a view of the retablo and the cathedra. The archbishop is kneeling for the Litany of the Saints. This is for the ordination of six deacons of the archdiocese. Take note! He is wearing the pallium! Take note! I guess you can recall why I point this out because I had been blogging about an archbishop who ordains his clergy without wearing the pallium. No folks, it does not effect the sacrament. I am just wondering why he is not wearing it when he is performing a function as a metropolitan. Well, anyways...
Thanks to the Latin Mass Society of Davao for the photos.
Yup, the Latin Mass has regained a new following in Davao. And guess where it will be held..
St. Francis Xavier Pre-College Seminary
Ulas, Davao City
Saturday, April 9 · 5:00pm - 6:30pm
IN THE SEMINARY...
No seriously guys. This is no April Fool's joke...
And you don't need the Instruction on Summorum Pontificum to have this!
Is Manila following?
Guess we need an ad limina every year, eh?
GOD BLESS ARCHBISHOP FERNANDO CAPALLA AND AUXILIARY BISHOP GEORGE RIMANDO AND THE CLERGY OF DAVAO!!!
I hope the Latin Mass Society of Davao regularly updates us with their schedule. AND EVEN SHARE THE IMPRESSION OF THE PRIESTS AND SEMINARIANS WHO EITHER OFFERED OR ASSISTED IN THE MASS!
God bless you!
PS: Which of the two church art lifts your hearts and minds to God? Hmmm?
