The blog of a group of Filipino Catholics and their frank commentary on anything that affects their lives as a citizen of the Philippines and as a Roman Catholics.
Sadly these franciscans probably dont realize how far they have deviated from St. Francis liturgical and eucharistic piety. At least i hope its not deliberate.
PLEASE REMOVED THESE PHOTOS. An inquiry was conducted. The retreat master who belongs to a different group of Franciscans took a sit (reasons not known) and instructed the student friars to partake of the bread and wine. They hesitated we were told but followed as told.Again we do not know what is reason of the celebrant, a medical condition? Dizziness? Laziness? As far as the friars are concern, the concerned friars were reminded,corrected and reprimanded. THIS IS NOT A STANDARD... REGULAR PRACTICE OF CONVENTUAL FRANCISCANS IN THE PHILIPPINES.
