I met the owner of the property which we wish to acquire for the Oratory which we wish to build for the Extraordinary form of the Roman Rite. The meeting was a very cordial one and the project seems to be a very promising one. The property is a three hundred square meter lot along a major thoroughfare. The owner herself feels a special attachment to the Latin Mass and so I think she was heaven sent. As I have told our congregation of Mass goers, I intend to put this Oratory under the patronage of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as I am truly convinced that the restoration of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite is one of the signs of the promised triumph of our Lady's Immaculate Heart. It will be an Oratory for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, a Center for the Pastoral Care of Catholics who are attached to the Extraordinary Form, and a Resource Center for Traditional Catholic Culture.
We need to raise twenty million pesos (PhP 20, 000, 000.00) or four hunrdred fifty thousand US dollars (US$ 450, 000. 00) to acquire the property. May the Immaculate Heart of Mary, whose feast we will celebrate on Sunday, August 22, 2010, assist this endeavor with her motherly intercession.
