Thursday: Feast of St. Joachim

A Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite was celebrated this evening in honor of the feast of St. Joachim at the Oratory of Saint Ignatius of Loyola at the Ateneo de Manila University. The mass presider was none other than the great Filipino Jesuit Liturgist, Fr. Timoteo Ofrasio SJ SLD, a professor at the Loyola School of Theology and the current Parish Priest of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Camarin.

The vestment that was used here was purchased at Talleres de Nazaret, Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. This was the same vestment used by Bishop Tobias during his Latin Mass in the “Ordinary” Form a few months ago.

Here are some of the photos of the celebration…







I finally got a good shot of the Epiclesis.



My new favorite photo of Fr Tim…



I wish to thank Fr. Jose Quilongquilong SJ for allowing me to take photos at the 2nd floor of the Oratory.

The next Latin Mass will be on September 20. Will post regarding that as soon as we finish making the invitations.

Thanks for dropping by today.

Live Long and Prosper.

    Thanks for posting these photos, Dinky; they’re really good. You take good angles.

    • Thank you as well Father for allowing me to take photos of you despite the possible ramifications of it. Thanks to the Ateneo Latin Mass Society for accepting me. More power to us all. See you all on the 20th of September. 🙂
