+Fr. Buddy's 40th day Mass celebration

The CDSA Faculty and Staff attended the Holy Mass for the 40th day of the death of +Rev. Fr. Salvador O. Yun at the San Ildefonso (de Toledo) Parish Church in Tanay, Rizal. Rev. Fr. Orlando Cantillon officiates the con-celebrated mass. Another mass was celebrated at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Pasig City by The Most Reverend Francisco C. San Diego, D.D. for those who cannot go to Tanay.

The significance of the 40 days after a person's death is that, according to folk beliefs, the soul still "wanders" or stays on earth after his death and that after 40 days he will ultimately go to his final destination.* It's reference is biblical, in the sense that Jesus stayed on earth and appears to his apostles and after forty days he ascended into heaven.**

San Ildefonso Church is a beautiful church, dating back to the 18th century. After the mass, the family of +Fr. Buddy invited the attendees to a lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Eternal Rest grant unto Fr. Buddy, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

May he rest in peace. Amen.
