A N N O U N C E M E N T S :
The Chapel of the Most Holy Trinity has launched a Rosary Crusade for the Intention of the Philippines. It is the Mission’s humble contribution and sincere efforts for the good and salvation of the country. Amidst the many national problems, threats and dangers we face as a country, we have recourse to the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary!
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, December 8, is a Holy Day of Obligation. However, this year, it is transferred from December 8 (Sunday) to December 9 (Monday). That is because in the rubrics of Pope Pius XII the Sunday of Advent takes precedence over that of the feast. Only the Divine Office and Mass [of the Immaculate Conception] are transferred on December 9, but the obligation to attend Mass is retained on December 8 (as explained by Fr. Gerard McKee, CMRI). Hence, the Vigil is also kept on the original date, December 7. However, in the rubrical instructions, permission is given to priests to say the Mass of the Immaculate Conception on December 8 with a commemoration of the Sunday of Advent. Our priest decided to avail of this permission, for practical reasons, since more people can come on a Sunday than a weekday. Therefore, the Chapel will have two Masses of the Immaculate Conception this year, back-to-back!
The Mission will renew the Act of Total Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary (according to the formula of St. Louis Marie de Montfort) before the 7:00 pm Mass on December 9 (the transferral date for the feast of the Immaculate Conception).
The Vigil of the Immaculate Conception, December 7 (Saturday), is a day of Fast and Abstinence. Please see Laws of Fast and Abstinence below.
The Vigil of the Nativity of Our Lord, observed in the Philippines* on December 23 (Monday), is a day of Fast and Abstinence. Please see Laws of Fast and Abstinence below.
* The Sacred Congregation of the Council has approved that the obligation of fast and abstinence on the Vigil of Christmas (December 24) will be observed on the day preceding the same Vigil (December 23); if the 23rd falls on a Sunday or Feastday of Obligation, the fasting and abstinence will be on December 22.
THE LAWS OF FAST AND ABSTINENCE
The Law of Fast binds all Catholics from the age of 21 until 60. It requires that only one full meal be had on the day. However, two light meals or snacks (for breakfast and supper) may be taken during the day, but added together they should not exceed one full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but drinking liquids such as coffee, milk, tea, juice, etc. is allowed.
The Law of Abstinence binds all faithful that have reached the age of 7. It forbids the eating of meat and other combinations of flesh-meat. Soups made of meat are also forbidden, but eggs and milk are allowed.
It is a mortal sin for a Catholic to neglect the applicable laws for fasting and abstinence, unless by reason of sickness or other sufficient cause a dispensation be granted to them.
For any questions or clarifications, please discuss with the priest.
“ Among all the devotions I know,
Nothing is more pleasing to the Mother of God than the Rosary.
Oh what a beautiful hope of salvation have those who recite the Rosary daily
With piety and perseverance. ”
