TLM News from Asia - II. President of Philippine Bishops' Conference to offer Solemn Pontifical Mass

Msgr. Palma is the Archbishop of Cebu, one of the Philippines' two "red-hat" sees. (The red hat of Cebu is currently held by Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, who turned 80 last year).

This Mass will be according to the 1962 Missal.

Interesting. The Filipino bishops, by and large, do everything in their power to put up walls against Tradition and the Traditional Latin Mass. But this is a good sign.

Hopefully, His Excellency will NOT be wearing that gold Vatican II polyester poncho when he celebrates!

I hope this will inspire more priests in the Philippines to regularly celebrate the TLM.

Hope this TLM does not cause Abp. Palma to be blackballed for the Cardinal hat. We need him to neutralize our very own Cardinal Wuerl.
