    To whom this may concern,
    where would one be able to attend Latin Mass under normal circumstances in Manila, preferably in Makati?

    Many thanks in advance for any information,
    Erik

    Hi Erik,

    Try Shrine of St. Therese, Villamore Airbase, across NAIA Terminal 3. Latin Mass is every Sunday, 9:00-10:00 am, at the Church basement (crypt). This should be accessible to you from Makati.

    Is Latin Mass allowable?

    FACT: For over 1000 years, the Roman Catholic church often conducts their mass services entirely in the Latin language, when no one sitting in the pews understands the Latin language. Most Roman Catholics who have sat through such a Latin Mass service have wondered what is going on. It was not until 1965 AD that the Pope finally understood 1 Cor 14:19 and allowed masses to conducted in the same vernacular language of the local people. (English in North America)

    Question #1: Is Latin Mass forbidden in the Bible when no one in the pews understands Latin?

    Answer: 1 Corinthians 14:19 o YES NO o

    “in the church I desire to speak five words with my mind so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.” 1 Corinthians 14:19

    Puzzling one: Why make a ceremony using a ‘dead’ language?

  5. Quirino M. Sugon Jr says:

    Ben,

    The people have Latin-English missals. They follow the mass through the English translation. It is not really that hard. We are not idiots. In a similar way, if you cannot read arabic, then you read the Quran in English.

  6. Quirino M. Sugon Jr says:

    Ben,

    Latin is still being used by the Catholic Church. Even lawyers and doctors use Latin phrases and names. There is even a Wikipedia in Latin: http://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagina_prima.

    It is not a “dead” language. It is the language of the Roman Catholic Church!
