|Though illegal, Filipino liturgists and some bishops continue to promote and celebrate the Misa ng Bayang Pilipino, a rite completely invented (and lacking in Magisterial or Conciliar Document support) on the academic desk of the late Fr. Anscar Chupungco, OSB|
DAVAO City, August 13, 2014—The Archdiocese of Davao will be hosting the 29th National Meeting of Diocesan Directors of Liturgy (NMDDL) from August 11 to 14.
To be held at the MerGrande Ocean Resort, the conference will focus on “The Liturgy for Special Groups” with discussions about Basic Ecclesial Communities (BEC), celebrations with children and youth, Trans-parochial Communities, and Persons with Disabilities (PWD). [Why was it that before the liturgical revolution of the 1960s, the Mass appealed to all people, disabled or not? Why?]
Aside from these, the conference will also tackle the proper catechesis on the approved New English Translation of the Rite of Marriage for the Philippines and the Rite of Confirmation.
Participants will be treated with a welcome dinner on the August 11 and on the second day, they will join the Misa ng Bayang Pilipino. [aka Participants will be treated to a form of Mass not approved by Rome, therefore making this form of worship illegal.]
NMDDL is a yearly gathering of all directors of the diocesan liturgical commissions in the Philippines in order to update them on liturgical concerns, promote coordination with the Episcopal Commission on Liturgy, and to create closer ties among liturgical commissions. The first NMDDL was held in 1986 in Tagaytay City.
This is the second time that the Archdiocese of Davao will host the same meeting as the first one was held in September 1998. (John Frances C. Fuentes)
A yearly event that does not even talk about the REALITY and LEGALITY called the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite aka Traditional Latin Mass. If you have shepherds who are uncharitable and suspecting you of being SSPX because of your attachment to the ancient form of worship that is UNIVERSALLY legal and binding as per the Motu Propio, Summorum Pontificum, I couldn't help but scratch my head, in disbelief how Catholic Masses with all the liturgical creativities and nonsense like dance, and Misa ng Bayang Pilipino could be allowed even if they are blatantly ILLEGAL in the eyes of the competent authorities of the Church.
Diocesan Directors of Liturgy MUST always teach first and foremost adherence to the liturgical norms of the Church. These men and women wallow in their liturgical academic degrees as their license to do whatever they want with the Holy Mass EVEN IF Holy Mother Church forbids anyone from adding or subtracting anything from the approved texts and norms.
Where is Misa ng Bayang Pilipino in Sacrosantum Concilium?
Where is that in ANY Vatican II document?
The ghost of Chupungco continues to haunt us...
