Archbishop Jesus A. Dosado of Ozamiz City: his writings on Summorum Pontificum and the Tridentine Mass

Archbishop Dosado has been pictured as an opponent of the traditional latin mass.  But a survey of the titles of his writings on this mass reveals his deep knowledge of Benedict XVI’s thoughts on the liturgy and his desire to implement them in his diocese. “I always pride myself in being one of the first to read and implement directions and directives from the Holy See,” Archbishop Dosado said.

Here is the list of his writings from CBCP News:

  1. February 28, 2007: Direction of the Eucharist, Do not remember the date Rumor that the “Latin” Mass will be restored
  2. After Summorum Pontificum: The veil and the return of the Mass of Pope John XXIII

  4. July 11, 2007: Comparison between the Novus Ordo and the Mass of John XXIII
  5. July 11, 2007: Pope Benedict and the return of the Latin Mass

  19. December 8, 2008: Pope Benedict the Sixteenth and old liturgical vestments
  20. Catechesis at any time: Mutual enrichment between the two forms.

I hope somebody can send me the bishop’s actual writings in Cebuano and their translations for posting in this blog.

Archbishop Dosado said that he is waiting for a request from a stable group of Latin mass parishioners and he will grant them their request.  So to the Latin Mass lovers in Ozamiz City, ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you.
