Exaltation of the Holy Cross A. D. 2014

On 14 September 2014, feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, and the seventh anniversary of the promulgation of the Apostolic Letter Summorum Pontificum by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, a Solemn High 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.


From the procession to the prayers at the foot of the altar.




At the Epistle and at the Gospel.



At the Consecration.



.From the postcommunion to the recession.




The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines having called for a National Day of Prayer for Peace to coincide on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, a feast that commemorates the rescue of the True Cross from the Persians, an Exposition and Benediction of the Relic of the True Cross followed after Mass in the oratory.



Impetrated during the Exposition was the petition for peace for all persecuted Christians. Invoked for this intention were our saints who fought against the Saracens, and our martyrs who shed their blood in defence of the Faith and of Jesus Christ before persecutions instigated by Muslims.

Pro christianis persecutis.

Christiánis patiéntibus, sub flagéllo mahometáno, sarracenórum trucum castris in aetérno destrúctis, pax persecútis et virtus, fortitúdo justitiáque, et vita aetérna.
