on the occasion of Fr. Piñon's 51st priestly anniversary,

Fr. Couture addressing trainee officers

53. Thanks to a zealous faithful, Lt. Col. Etis, Fr. Couture was privileged to address a group
of 250 trainee officers at a military base not far from Manila.
More apostolate was scheduled with them but the local Conciliar authorities interfered and blocked the plan.


Frs. Morgan and Rajadurai

Father Morgan, visibly homesick for the Philippines, seen here on a visit at Attorney Dominguez's home.
Standing on the left is Father Joseph Rajadurai, SSPX Indian priest,

the first four Bethanians

55. Divine Providence was putting us to a special work with the arrival of two ex Sisters
who had left their convent in the previous months to protect their faith and who then came to us.
This obliged us to do something for our feminine vocations: it led to the opening of the House of Bethany,
a kind of general pre-postulate. Posing with Frs. Onoda (1st Chaplain) and newly arrived Fr. Marc Vernoy, are the first four Bethanians. (October)
