As most readers will know, Father Rodriguez is currently on sabbatical.  When placed on sabbatical, he asked that prayers be offered for his discernment and the future of his apostolate.  It was also announced that an effort at mass, joint Novenas would be made to that end.  The Novenas were just announced.  I give text of the announcement below, along with the prayers.  Please do pray for Father Rodriguez and the many afflicted souls formerly of his care in El Paso in this most trying time:

MANY THANKS to all who have been praying for Fr. Rodríguez. We have received many messages of encouragement, support and prayer.

– Tomorrow we will begin praying a continuous novena for Fr. Rodríguez, which will last until 10 May 2015. The current novena should always be at the PRAYER / CURRENT NOVENA tab from the website homepage (www.svfonline.org). It will also be accessible through the website’s calendar: http://svfonline.org/el-paso-

– Our first novena, appropriately enough given Father’s fervent Marian Devotion will be to Our Lady. This particular novena is to Our Lady of Remedy. We will pray it from Nov 21 – Nov 29. It is attached in .pdf format.—–>>>>Novena Our Lady Good Remedy

– The second novena will be the traditional Christmas Novena prayed for twenty-five days from the Feast of St. Andrew to Christmas Eve (Nov 30-Dec 24). It is also attached in .pdf format.—–>>>>Novena Christmas 2014 [You should be praying this Novena anyways!]

– Following the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (which is Father’s ordination anniversary), we will also begin to pray a 54 Day Rosary Novena. As soon as I have those files prepared in .pdf format, I will email them out as well.

Thanks to St. Vincent Ferrer Foundation for sending this information out.  SVF also noted this sad development in Trier, Germany, which mirrors situations in El Paso, New York, and elsewhere:

The bishop of Trier in Germany has removed the parish priest of Beckingen from his parish, ostensibly for the reason provided in canon 1741 of the current Code of Canon Law, “a manner of acting which brings grave detriment or disturbance to ecclesiastical communion.” Wherein exactly the disturbance of communion consists is difficult to tell…….

……..What exactly “the obscure complaints” are remains unclear. Rorate Caeli interviewed one of the parishioners, who said that the complaints had to do with the pastor’s “too strict application of the diocesan guidelines on funerals,” and his practice of occasionally celebrating Mass ad orientem and of wearing the biretta on feast days.

Maybe the good father could find a place in Lincoln.
