Traditional Latin Mass

On the matter of Fr Michael Rodriguez

Posted on

This brave faithful priest continues to be persecuted by his bishop for…gasp, being loyal and faithful to his vows…

Please pray for the intentions of Fr Michael Rodiguez who was put involuntarily on “sabbatical” and may not offer Holy Mass in public during this time, something that in older times was reserved for the modernist quasi-masons who run many of the chanceries in the US today.

From the posting of his sermon on youtube:

As of November 10, 2014, Fr Michael Rodríguez, is no longer the Administrator of Sacred Heart Mission in Shafter, TX.  He has been given a six-month sabbatical in order to discern God’s Will for the future. Fr Rodríguez remains a priest in good-standing of the Diocese of El Paso. He will most likely be looking at options for priestly ministry beyond the Diocese of El Paso. Fr Rodríguez has been offering the Traditional Latin Mass [Mass of All Times] exclusively for the past three years, and this has led to increasing difficulties for him with the local hierarchy. Fr Rodríguez asks for your prayers, and he especially asks you to pray for the small group of faithful (about 50) of the Presidio-Shafter area who are heartbroken over the loss of the Traditional Latin Mass and parish life based on the Traditional Latin Mass.

Admittedly, Fr Rodríguez is in a very difficult situation. On the one hand, he intends to do his best to be obedient to his bishop. On the other hand, Fr. Rodríguez is convinced that God is calling him – through the Church – to dedicate his priesthood and all his energy and strength to promote the Church’s greatest treasures: her timeless liturgy and doctrine. Both Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI have acknowledged that the Church is suffering through a terrible crisis of Faith in the post-Vatican II era, and Fr. Rodríguez, as a loyal priest and son of the Church, cannot stand idly by in the face of such widespread disparagement and abandonment of the Catholic Faith.

In making any decisions for the future, Fr Rodríguez is begging God to purify his motives, so that he may act, first and foremost, out of love and fidelity to Jesus Christ and His holy Church, and for the salvation of souls. As a loyal son of Holy Mother Church, Fr Rodríguez is 100% committed to following, teaching, promoting, and defending her Traditional Mass (holy liturgy) and her unchangeable truths (holy doctrine), e.g. the sacredness of marriage, the indissolubility of marriage, the grave sin and intrinsic evil of homosexual acts.

In closing, Fr Rodríguez asks that efforts be redoubled to pray for the Holy Father so that he will consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as requested by Our Lady of Fatima.  May the reign of Christ the King come through the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of His Mother!

In a few days a number of us will begin a continuous series of nine-day novenas imploring the intercession of Our Lady and the saints on Fr. Rodríguez’s behalf. I will email more information on that in a few days. Moreover, we will pray a 54-Day Rosary Novena on his behalf from Dec 10 – Feb 1, that is between the Marian feasts of the Immaculate Conception and the Purification of Our Lady, (also the feast of Our Lady of Good Success). We invite all to join us in offering these prayers. Thank you very much for your prayers and support.

What exactly is a Trad Catholic?

Posted on Updated on

Curious minds want to know.  And please, don’t call the Mass of All Times the so-called “extraordinary form”…the Novus Ordo, in fact, is the derogation of the Roman Rite of the liturgy, not the other way around.


Traditional Catholics attending a Traditional Latin Mass during WWII?
No, just Catholics attending THE Mass during WWII

And for those who say it is just for dinosaurs and old fogeys, go attend a TLM anywhere and see most of the crowds more and more are people under 40, those who weren’t even born when the Novus Ordo was promulgated by the liberal Pope Paul VI.

So, Chris Ferrara, long time Catholic lawyer and apologist, asks the question, just what is a Traditionalist? Go ahead and read the worthwhile column to find his surprising setting of the table and response. Now, granted, the article doesn’t aptly discuss Catholics who fall under the other 21 or so equally valid Rites of Holy Mother Church. They often are even more full of pomp and ceremony, and royalty and triumphant overtures. Wonder when the perplexed miscreants will go after them?

But, the topic at hand and in controversy by liberals and modernists and their freemasonic cretins alike are those wascally Trads. Enjoy!


FFI vs LC: it’s easy if you know the players…

Posted on

The blog site Veneremur Cernui gives an excellent assessment of the problem of the Franciscans of the Immaculata vs the scandal-ridden homosexual and child engendering Legionaries of Christ:

“Even before I had read this article [from the Christmas break], I had come to the conclusion that the FFIs, as they were oriented under founder and former superior Fr. Stefano Manelli, were pretty much finished – at least by human means. Perhaps God is simply trying the order severely in order to prepare it for tremendous future glory.  But by all indications, they are to be broken and completely tamed, all for doing nothing more than having a “definitely traditional drift.” ”

As New Catholic at Rorate Coeli blog concludes: “Thankfully, Maciel only abused male novices  [I think sodomy/{pederasty} qualifies as an abuse] and fathered unnumbered babies… If only he had introduced the Traditional Latin Mass, then the Legion would have been abolished, and their buildings burned down, and the earth beneath them salted.” Rorate forgot “and no mention allowed of them ever again”.

The true nuns of FFI thus continue to also be persecuted by modernist elements in the conciliar, beach ball laden, love, love, love  church of Pope Bergoglio:

And so Veneremur continues:

“Is there any other religious order in the history of the Church whose founder has been discovered to be so rampantly immoral and yet was permitted to continue on?  Doesn’t it raise extremely serious concerns that there may be many further, heretofore unseen problems, with an institute so founded?  Mind, we are not talking about some youthful indiscretions for which a very holy soul spent years in penance agonizing over.  We are talking about a man and an institute who covered up gross sins of great perversion for years, and only “repented” when a new pontiff absolutely demanded his removal.

“And yet, the aged and sick Fr Stefano Manelli, to whose name not a hint of scandal has ever been attached, languishes under virtual house arrest while the order he so successfully built up is broken and radically altered, perhaps in ways that will insure it never see the wondrous growth and waxing influence it possessed heretofore. I know the Lord works in mysterious ways, and can even use great sins and injustices to work unfathomable goods, but I can’t imagine the suffering the many FFIs are enduring.  May God have mercy on them all.”


Fr Maciel before his fall with Pope John Paul II (l); Maciel with alleged “wife” and one child (r)

And so He should lest they fall to Hades with this perverse persecution of the loyal, faithful, orthodox 800 or so FFIs, while total silence abounds on the perverted, irregular and larcenous LC/RC.



Donna in, Burke out at Congregation for Bishops…

Posted on Updated on

Word from Rome is that effeminate DC archbishop Cardinal Don Wuerl is now packed onto the Congregation for Bishops by Pope Francis.

And that maybe not so shockingly, orthodox Cardinal Burke is out. This, like so much of the past 9 months, evinces the what and how of the  pontificate of the liberation theology minded Bergoglio is and will be.

Like the Traditional Latin Mass, faithful and loyal is out if it means the unchanging magisterium. On the other hand, weaselness and a lisp can get one advanced much in the politics of the Vatican pro tempore.

Rorate Coeli speculates this will mean many more trips to Rome for Wuerl, who has steadfastly refused to publicly rebuke abortoholic “catholic” politicians, such as VP Joe Biden and Secy of State John F’ing Kerry, both to whom he has often scandalously given Holy Communion or permitted the same tacitly, allowing blasphemy if the Sacred Species in the face of their strict adherence to promotions and campaigns for baby killing, contraception, sodomy and other moral evils.

The long history of intertwining sodomites of homosexual and pederast proclivities associated with Wuerl during his time in Pittsburgh, inter alia, are well laid out and thoroughly document in Volume III of Randy Engel’s The Rite of Sodomy.

Go figure…
