(Costa Rica) The September edition of the Spanish monthly Una Voce reported about the priest Jose Pablo de Jesus Rodriguez Tamayo of Costa Rica. It told of the priest and his attachment to the traditional form of the Roman Rite. Rodriguez Tamayo was ordained as a priest in 1979 and is a Superior of Opus Cordi Eucharistici an Association of the Faithful by Diocesan Law.
For the priest of the Archdiocese of San Jose in Costa Rica the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum is a great grace and a fortune, in any even it's not a problem as some insist. He was excited and took up the invitation of Pope Benedict XVI. The more he celebrated the Mass, the more he realized the riches of the ancient Mass and decided in short order to only celebrate Holy Mass in the classical form of the Roman Rite.
In time Don Jose began also to pray his breviary in the Old Rite. He insists that the youth in "this part of the world, far from Europe", are drawn to the traditional Liturgy, which gives them a certainty that conveys the Catholic Liturgy and the truths of the Faith in its integrity.
An effect of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI in 2007 is that even more priests and laity can offer the traditional Mass and receive its spiritual treasures.
The complete interview of Don Jose Pablo Jesus Rodriguez Tamayo is published on the blog of Una Voce, Costa Rica. The interview is held by Daniel Arturo Varga de La Mata (President of Una Voce, Costa Rica) and Javier Luis Candalario Dieguze (President of Una Voce Cuba).
Opus Cordis Eucharistici, founded in 1982, is a confluence of promoting Eucharistic adoration and consciousness of the real presence of Jesus Christ in the most holy sacrament of the altar.
