The first day of October falls on a Sunday this year, and what a fitting time it is to begin the month with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (a.k.a. Traditional Latin Mass or Tridentine Mass). The Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost also falls on this Sunday.
The Cebuano Summorum Pontificum Society invites you to our Missa cantata (Sung Mass) at 4:00 P.M. on October 1, 2017, at the Adoration Chapel of the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish Church (Capitol Parish) along N. Escario Street, Cebu City.
The Holy Sacrifice will be sung by Cebu Archdiocesan Media Liaison Officer Msgr. Joseph Tan, who will be assisted by the Schola Gregoriana of Cebu.
The Society will be praying the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Latin at 3:15 P.M. The Rosary is a devotional prayer that holds the highest esteem among other devotional prayers.
Thereafter, the Society will pray None (Mid-afternoon Prayer) of the Divine Office in the Ordinary Form also in Latin. The Divine Office (a.k.a. Liturgy of the Hours) is liturgical prayer and takes precedence — in value, efficacy, and dignity — over devotional prayers (such as the Rosary) and other private prayers because the Liturgy is the prayer of our Lord Himself which he put into the mouth of the Church, His Bride.
We encourage you to come early so you can take part in these devotional and liturgical prayers prior to Mass.
Please prepare yourself to receive our Lord in Holy Communion during the Mass. To do that, you need to remain in a state of grace — go to Confession!
See you this Sunday!
