The following email was sent through the email group of Filpressyd (Filipino Press Club of Sydney). It was addressed to the editor of Philippine Sentinel.
As an added thank you, I have reserved 6 candles for you— 1 candle for each month that you so brilliantly featured my brother Fr Raul (del Prado) in your newsletter.
So you can really rest in peace.
Emma de Vera
Mrs. Emma De Vera is a travel agent and owner of newly-opened Travel Access in Flushcombe Road in Blacktown.
It is unfortunate that she can’t handle the truth about her brother, Fr. Raul del Prado who, until his departure for the Philippines some few weeks ago, has continued to clandestinely say mass in restaurants and other undisclosed places.
It has been confirmed that the priest has no ‘celebret’ and is therefore not authorised by any Australian bishop to say mass in Australia.
Philippine Sentinel in turn thanks Emma de Vera for including the word ‘brilliant’ because we cannot say the same of her. Moreover, we are not offering any candle as the cost of one candle is too much for her. – Dino Crescini
