Saint Peter in Chains A.D. 2014
On 1 August 2014, formerly the feast of Saint Peter in Chains, also a First Friday Mass was celebrated at the Parish of the Holy Family in the Diocese of Cubao. Assisting were members of the Societas Ecclesia Dei Sancti Ioseph – Una Voce Philippines.
At the Consecration.
After the Mass, in response to the call for all Catholics made by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (see here, and here, and here) to join in adoration on 1 August in solidarity with the persecuted Christians in Iraq, Syria, and the Middle East, a Holy Hour was observed in reparation for the outrages committed against the Sacred Heart, and to pray for our Christian brethren who currently suffer persecution in many parts of the world, under the scourge of Islam, for their steadfast faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Last week (see here), a procession was held in honour of Saint James the Moorslayer to invoke his aid in these times of rampant persecution.
Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.
