Traditional Ordo 2018

_DSC0001Elsewhere, we have uploaded the traditional Ordo for the Philippines for 2018. Apart from what has already been said here, we will only add that this ordo, like its 2017 counterpart, has been enriched with old customs and received practices peculiar to the Philippines, abstracted from older ordines and referenced against published manualia. For example, one will find before the entry for 1 April the rubrics for the celebration of the salubong, according to the rite prescribed in the Manual de Manila. We hope that this would help guide our brethren in the celebration of the Mass and the Office in the vetus ordo.

Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.

  1. This has been very helpful for our young TLM group in determining local feasts, thank you very much for compiling this Ordo.

    While personally I lean on the pre-1955 side of the 1962 vs. Pre-1955 debate (and not just for Holy Week), I very much appreciate this Ordo which is very well-made than the others that I have seen thus far and which uses the 1962 Missal and Office (the others were too long-winded, for my taste at least).

      There have been plans before to compile an ordo for the Philippines according to the true usus antiquior, in parallel with the vetus ordo. Hopefully, once schedule clears, this plan would materialise. The stacked octaves, especially in December, will certainly not underwhelm (to such a point that Advent is virtually invisible). Equally interesting will be the special instructions, such as for the unfurling of the Lenten banners in the cathedral of Manila, for the timing of the Corpus Christi procession, for the days to gain the old toties quoties indulgences, etc.

      1. Hopefully, such an Ordo would come out soon. Based from the 1962 Ordo that you have compiled thus far, it seems to me that the Philippines is indeed still rich in its own local liturgical calendar, even if the 1962 calendar itself is a bit reduced than what preceded it. If such richness is apparent in the 1962 calendar, then I imagine it would be much more so in the pre-1955 calendar.

        I must say that I do agree in your observation that somehow the presence of the octave of the Immaculate Conception, coupled with the Misas de Aguinaldo, may almost make Advent invisible outside of Sundays.
