Presenting a new copy of the 1962 Missal to the community

Mangaldan is a town in Pangasinan province in the Philippines with a small but fervent group of faithful attached to the Extraordinary Form (Traditional Mass).  This is Pale' Eric's 2nd time being with this community.  Through him, the Guam Latin Mass community is reaching out to assist the Mangaldan group.  A member of the Guam community recently donated a brand new copy of the 1962 Missal to give to the Mangaldan group.  A label has been put on the inside cover of the Missal so that the donor and the Guam community are spiritually with the Mangaldan group every time they have Mass.  Their one and only Missal before this was an old one in poor condition.

Pale' Eric also conducted two sessions for the group explaining the ceremonies of the Mass, as well as the veneration of a relic of Padre Pio.

The Mangaldan community says thanks and God bless to their brethren on Guam!

August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary falls on August 22.  But, in addition to that, is the great Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 15.

This month, we also observe the feasts of some very important saints :

St. Dominic (August 4)

St. John Mary Vianney (August 8)

St. Lawrence (August 10)

St. Augustine (August 28)

and many more! 

Besides the saints, one major feast of Our Lord - the Transfiguration on August 6.

August is truly RICH in feasts!

Some Short Prayers in Honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary be known, praised, blessed, loved, worshipped and glorified always and in all places!

Sweet heart of Mary, be my salvation!


The Sacred Heart of Jesus thirsts for souls.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary yearns that all souls may be lead to her divine Son.
