Father Rodriguez on Devotion to Our Lady…… December 5, 2016

…….and the end of the liturgical  year.  You know me, I have to upload pretty much any material from Fr. Michael Rodriguez that goes public.  He just helped me out this weekend with advice on a thorny moral problem afflicting someone dear to me.  Please keep him in your prayers, his situation in El Paso remains difficult, to say the least; he is a priest in good standing and is doing much good work but he still has no official assignment/role with the Diocese.  The powers that be rarely, especially in a fallen age such as ours,  like having their failings called out, and the failings of Church leadership locally and universally have been as spectacular as they have been numerous in recent decades.  These are the times that try good men’s souls, indeed.

Father ties in devotion to Our Lady with the end of the liturgical year, demonstrating how it is so appropriate for the liturgical year to end on a Saturday, Our Lady’s day.  As we should end each day with devotion to Our Lady, so the liturgical year ends.  He also discusses the Salus Populi Romani, a sacred image of Our Lady painted by St. Luke on a table top built by Our Blessed Lord (I was not aware of that last detail until now).

It’s a short video and well worth your time, I think you’ll pick up several amazing bits regarding this sacred painting and evidence of devotion to Our Lady going back to the early Church.  Of course, it was popular demand, indicating immense devotion of very long practice, that drove the 4th century Council of Ephesus to dogmatically define, as required of belief by all the faithful, that Our Lady is truly the Mother of God, and eminently worthy of veneration and emulation.

What is this?! A Latino that actually believes what the Church teaches AND he passes this along in an orthodox manner? Well, he must not be a true Latino…er…Latinx, if you prefer…

Just kidding.

A true Latino loves Holy Mother the Church. A true Latino believes all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches, because God the Almighty has revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

God bless Father Miguel Rodriguez.

¡Viva Cristo Rey! ¡Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe!
