Knowing him personally, this was the man who I confessed to for circa 3 years. He is a good man, I certainly pray that he be re-ordained (not conditionally as some might suggest). I certainly pray that he follows that path of truth, which has led him out of the Novus disordo since a while ago.
He is a man that has the spirit of God (I have hardly seen anyone be so faithful to prayer truly inspiring & edifying), and it amazes me just how far he has traveled on the path of Catholic doctrine. He started out as a charismatic, I remember him showing me some photos doing a "beach mass." This is what good will and prayers of the faithful do. No one desires that those wonderful souls who wanted to follow the calling of Christ, be stuck in a schismatic sect. There is not a shadow of a doubt in my mind, that his calling is that of a priest. It is not his fault, that Montini made them null and void (most of the sacraments, if he did not outright destroy them he lessened the grace received by them such as eliminating the rite of exorcism in baptism etc...).
Yes, pray very much! I did not even know this happened! This is excellent news, I think that sabbatical might serve him some good. The local heretic in chief here in El Paso, certainly doesn't like him. I know this for a fact personally, it is obvious that the religion Mr. Michael Rodriguez professes is alien to that of the "bishop."
If there ever was a time to pray! It is now, oremus
. Once he gets ordained a priest, he will truly be a great priest. I can die a happy man, if he does this. Never have I desired so much something as this. Veni sancte Spiritus... Fill him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding. Amen.
Thank you for posting this!
