Some Greatness from Fr.

I’m very short on time, but here are two great videos featuring Father Michael Rodriguez. The first is an exegesis on St. Agnus, the great Roman virgin and martyr whose intercession is invoked in the Roman Canon:
The second video concerns the three sins Father considers most offensive to God, blasphemy, heresy, and impurity. Obviously, in these terribly dark times, all three sins are epidemic and seemingly growing worse all the time, even as many within the human element of the Mystical Body of Christ promote them increasingly:
Why are these sins so prevalent today? Because satan knows these are the three sins most offensive to God. The decisive battle for the Church is underway. The particular marks of satan, blasphemy, heresy, and impurity, have wreaked devastation within the Ark of Salvation, the Holy Catholic Church. These sins are an attempt to offend God’s very nature – blasphemy against God’s perfect holiness, heresy against God’s perfect truth, and impurity against God’s infinite purity.
But that is only the beginning of this hour of powerful catechesis. Just one example: from 7:05- 14:00 Father explains the theocentric nature of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the vast superiority of the Traditional Latin Mass in being theocentric. All good Catholics must work towards the restoration of the TLM, as it leads us to God in every phrase, posture, and detail. The New Mass is not theocentric. It is “an unheard of protestantization of the Mass.” Father urges those who normally assist at the Novus Ordo to make every effort to assist at the TLM and to learn more about the TLM and Tradition. I know this is not possible for everyone due to continued limited availability of the TLM and continued persecution of Tradition, but the exhortation is to make whatever effort possible.
If you find that moving and inspirational, I exhort you to take the time to watch and/or listen to the entire video. It is very much worth your time.
For those wanting an update on Father’s status, nothing has changed. He remains a priest in good standing in the Diocese of El Paso but without a pastoral assignment. This situation may well persist for years. Nonetheless, Father remains very busy and continues various means of shepherding souls. I try to post whatever content from Father Rodriguez that I can find.
