Father Rodriguez’s 2011 Top Eight Quotes

2011 The Year Fr. Michael Rodriguez Shines

 

1.  I urge all of the Catholic faithful to treat homosexuals with love, understanding, and respect. At the same time, never forget that genuine love demands that we seek, above all, the salvation of souls. Homosexual acts lead to the damnation of souls. Any Catholic Who Supports Homosexual Acts

2.  Furthermore, a Catholic would be guilty of a most grievous sin of omission if he/she neglected to actively oppose the homosexual agenda, which thrives on deception and conceals its wicked horns under the guises of “equal rights,” “tolerance,” “who am I to judge?,” etc. Any Catholic Who Supports Homosexual Acts

3.  Remember: Every single Catholic, out of fidelity to charity and truth, has the absolute duty to oppose (1) the murder of unborn babies, and (2) any and all government attempts to legalize homosexual unions. Any Catholic Who Supports Homosexual Acts

4. “I was ordained to the Catholic priesthood to offer sacrifice and teach the only truth which brings salvation and happiness. . . The priesthood is my greatest joy. In the present circumstances, I intend to try even harder to be a good, holy priest. Obedience to my bishop is essential to the priesthood.” Bishop Publicly Disciplines Fr. Rodriguez

5.   “Today, throughout 21st century America, elementary school children are being indoctrinated by homosexual activists that there are “different kinds of families.” Jesus Christ preached against the man who looks upon a woman and lusts after her. (Mt 5:28). Today, 21st century man, a slave to the fires of his passion and lust, cries “equal rights” in order to justify the abomination of male-male or female-female “unions.” The stench of moral decadence surrounds us, and yet we insist on spreading the lie that we of the 21st century are “enlightened and progressive” because we’ve “moved beyond the prejudices of the past.”  The Truth About Homosexuality, Part IV

6.  A truly pastoral approach will appreciate the need for homosexual persons to avoid the near occasions of sin. We wish to make it clear that departure from the Church’s teaching, or silence about it, in an effort to provide pastoral care is neither caring nor pastoral.   The Truth About Homosexuality, Part IV

7. Above all, we are to show love and compassion towards homosexuals by leading them to the truth, and helping them to reject sinful homosexual activity. Remember, it’s about saving souls! We must be firm, yet humble, patient, and caring. Love and compassion means assisting the homosexual person to live chastely, form wholesome friendships, and grow in the virtues: peace, patience, benignity, goodness, longanimity, mildness, faith, and modesty. (Gal 5:22) Happiness and self-fulfillment can never be gained through sinful relationships and disordered sexual activity. The Truth About Homosexuality

8.  Under no circumstances can sinful homosexual acts ever be approved. Woe to the Christian who denies the reality of sin! It is never loving and respectful to lie to homosexuals by telling them that homosexual behavior is o.k. or “normal.” Don’t be fooled by the well-orchestrated campaigns of misinformation and deceit by pro-homosexual groups which have infested the media. Instead, trust in God and His commandments! Trust in the teachings of His Church! Homosexual acts were, are, and always will be an abomination before God and man. This is an infallible moral teaching of the Catholic Church to which every Catholic must give assent.  The Truth About Homosexuality, Part II

    My husband and I are praying very much for the good Catholic people in El Paso and for Fr. Rodriguez. Apparently Fr. Rodriguez did his job very well in El Paso. Keep up the good fight.

    We are also praying for all priests and bishops to convert, and preach the truth. Every chance I get, I share the information of what is going on with Fr. Rodriguez and San Juan Bautista, so that more people will wake up to the struggle that is going on and to resist the evil of our day.

    What a punishment we are getting to have bad priests and bishops, and yet there is the hope and trust in the promise of our Lord that He will always be with us.

    In the Sacred Heart of Our Lord,
    and in the Immaculate Heart of Mother,

    Also, to the English speaking readers, a translation of Virigina Lopez’ comments:

    Gracias, Fr. Michael, por su testimonio de la verdadera fe catolica y por su valor en defenderla. Debemos luchar por el regreso de la Misa en el Rito Antiguo, es un verdadero tesoro.
    Dios lo bendiga por siempre y para siempre.

    Translation: Thank you Fr Michael, for your testimony on the true Catholic faith and for your courage in defending it. We need to fight (wrestle) for the return of the ancient rite of the Mass [Traditional Latin Mass-my comments], it is a true treasure. May God bless you always and forever”.

  • Arthur Cardenas

    Thank you Fr Rodriguez, for trying to faithfully teach the true Catholic faith. Praying that the truth will come out in the ongoing difficulties with Archbishop Ochoa. To all reading this website, please try to understand the context of the state of the RCC at this current time. Please ponder these words of Our Lady in her book “To the Priests- Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” from the Marian Movement of Priests, message
    #332h -My Heart Is Bleeding – September 6, 1986

    “– There has also entered into the Church disunity, division, strife and antagonism. The forces of atheism and Masonry, having infiltrated within it, are on the point of breaking up its interior unity and of darkening the splendor of its sanctity. These are the times, foretold by me, when cardinals will be set against cardinals, bishops against bishops and priests against priests, and the flock of Christ will be torn to pieces by rapacious wolves, who have found their way in under the clothing of defenseless and meek lambs. Among them there are even some who occupy posts of great responsibility, and by means of them, Satan has succeeded in entering and in operating at the very summit of the Church. Bishops and priests of the holy Church of God, how great today is your responsibility! The Lord is about to demand of you an account of how you have administered his vineyard. Repent; seek pardon; make amends; and, above all, be once again faithful to the task which has been entrusted to you”.

    God bless!
