Say Thanks To Cardinal Burke!

Thanks, Your Grace!

Thanks, Your Grace!


This petition is not a petition, because it does not ask anything. 

It is, simply, a way of saying “Thanks, Your Grace!” to this excellent man. 

Link here. 

The signatures will be given to him personally. 

We are above 18,000 as I write this. 

It is good to have, once in a while, the opportunity to say “thanks” in this direct way to those who care for our salvation, rather than for their own popularity and quiet living.

    I receive monthly newsletters from David Rodriquez who is Father Michael’s brother. I have had correspondence with Father Michael and was most saddened by the e mail below that I just received:


    Pax Christi,

    As of yesterday, 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 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.

    Ad Iesum per Mariam,

    I sent the following response to David and implore this blogs readers for prayers and encouragement for Father Michael in his struggles to live our true Catholic faith. We need him desperately.



    Please express my deepest respect and love for the influence and holiness of your brother, Father Michael in my life. We desperately need priests like him in the fight to live, defend and preserve our true Catholic faith. On September 28, 2011, I posted an open letter to God on The Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus Forum in which I included: “In closing God, I do have a few other items that I need to say. My prayer is for you protect and safeguard good Priests like Father Michael Rodriguez and the many priests like him……”. We need Father Michael ! Be strong. Be courageous. and so we fight and pray.

    Your friend in defense of Holy Mother Church,

    George Brenner
