A Taste of History

Subscribe to CDO EXTREME by Email
Today we went to Masao, the spot where the first mass was held on March 31, 1521, an Easter Sunday. Magellan ordered a mass to be celebrated which was officiated by Friar Pedro Valderama, the Andalusion chaplain of the fleet, the only priest that time. It was conducted near the shores of the island, and the Holy First Mass marked the birth of Roman Catholicism in the Philippines.. 

Above photo is a shrine that stands on the shores of Masao Beach.. Mazaua is the historical name for this place.
