We cannot help but recall this same gesture by the incoming CBCP President (effective 1 December 2013) Archbishop Socrates Villegas.
If these two bishops can do it, why not your bishop? Why not your priest? Why not your parish? Why not your school?
Archbishop Palma even distributed Holy Communion to kneeling communicants, on the tongue!
The good Archbishop offered this Mass at the Chapel of the Holy Relics, the Convential Chapel of the friars of the Order of the Discalced Augustinians, Tabor Hill in Brgy. San Jose (Talamban) in Cebu City.
Images are from the Facebook Page of that Chapel, uploaded by Fr. Dennis Ruiz.
I am sure that the fans of the blog, specially that blogger priest, Teletubbie and others, will say that Archbishop Palma himself did not request for an Ad Orientem Mass, with communion on the tongue while kneeling.
Yes! That is correct.
But he did not object to it! These two Archbishops have Pastoral Guts to do what is right! While Jennifer et. al. have the Guts of Disobedience to resist this.
Did you get that?
A former student sent me this image of an Ad Orientem Mass offered by Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales, Emeritus of Manila.
Sino pa ba ang gusto ninyong makitang naka Ad Orientem bago kayo sumunod sa kung ano ang allowed, nay, encouraged?
