Pontifical Low Mass at the Ateneo

Just when you think nothing "Catholic" would come out of the Ateneo, ;) the Ateneo Latin Mass Society under the spiritual direction of the highly-respected liturgist, Fr. Tim Ofrasio, SJ, organized a Pontifical Low Mass at the Oratory of Saint Ignatius, Loyola House of Studies, Ateneo de Manila University.

No less than Novaliches Bishop Antonio Tobias celebrated the Mass. Why? Maybe because the bishop who has direct jurisdiction over Ateneo STILL REFUSES to celebrate the TLM publicly and even publicly rebuke Ateneo and MST for their continuing public defiance of Church teaching???



Thank God we have Bishop Tobias to celebrate this form of the Mass publicly in the university that is slowly becoming more anti-Catholic than ever before.

From the looks of it, more Ateneans who are loyal to the Church are taking a bolder step to stop the stupidity that some Jesuits are either teaching (oh, come on! Admit it!) or are rather trying to turn a blind eye to all the shenanigans that goes in there.

Here are some photos from the Mass

Hopefully we can see a Pontifical High Mass in the Katipunan Pyramid ehrm...Church of the Gesu. :D


  1. I am the Guy with a blue shirt,receiving communion with Fr Arevalo. Hehe!!!

  2. I think it is about time that Bishop Tobias be elevated into the College of Cardinals. I have nothing but respect for this man eversince I met him.

    A simple and holy man; the kind of man we should all emulate.

    This campaign of mine is serious. He should be a Cardinal.

  3. Whoa! Is that Fr. Catalino Arevalo in the 3rd to the last photo? Frankly, I'd expect him to be among the last to attend a TLM...

  4. Fr. Arevalo has been attending the EF Masses in the Oratory ever since we started holding Mass there.
