Father Arellano To Celebrate Sacred Heart Mass

Published June 23, 2011

A Tridentine Latin Mass is to be celebrated Friday, July 1, at the Cathedral of Christ the King by Father Edgardo “Bing” Arellano.

The Mass for the solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will be celebrated at 9 p.m. by Father Arellano, the international spiritual director of the Alliance of the Holy Family, International. Father Arellano will be celebrating the Extraordinary Form of the Mass facing the high altar of the cathedral.

This year the solemnity occurs on the first Friday of July, which coincides with the feast of the Most Precious Blood.

Father Arellano is a canon lawyer, an exorcist, and the head of the Holy Family International and the Alliance of the Two Hearts. These ecclesial institutes were initiated by the now Blessed Pope John Paul II, for the express purpose of restoring and preserving family life.

The evening will also begin with an opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation and with recitation of the rosary. There will also be Eucharistic adoration and Benediction during this vigil.

At 12 a.m. Father Arellano will celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Mass in honor of Our Lady on the feast of her Immaculate Heart on Saturday, July 2.

Father Arellano will also include massive enthronements of homes to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for families attending the vigil Mass needing their homes enthroned. They will sign up and receive their Two Hearts picture that night. The enthronement of the home is a spiritual covering for the home and family under the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, even as the painting of the lamb’s blood on the doorposts was for the Jewish people in Egypt at the Passover (Ex 12: 7-13).

All are invited to attend this evening of prayer at the Cathedral of Christ the King, 2699 Peachtree Road, NE, Atlanta.
