Besamanos for a priest

Dei praesidio fultus greets Rev. Fr. Michell Joe B. Zerrudo on the occasion of his 21st sacerdotal anniversary! 

¡Felices bodas de latón!

After Mass on the First Sunday of Advent, 30 November 2014, also the feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle, the faithful kissed the anointed hands of Fr. Zerrudo during the besamanos, which in epochs past had been done by our ancestors on certain Sundays of the year, amid the sound of the brass band, to honour their parish priests.

Tu es sacerdos in aeternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech !

Et accedentes, famur gaudentes, ac personantes, valde ovantes :

Vivat, vivat, vivat flamen bonus ! Vivat, vivat, vivat in aeternum !

Ad multos annos, Domne Michaël Iosephe !

Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.
