Our Lady of Good Success and the Mystery of the Cross
Theme: If we wish to save our souls and be faithful disciples of Christ, then we must (1) battle against evil and (2) fervently carry out the work of reparation in union with Christ. Relying on the wisdom of the saints, Fr. Rodríguez emphasizes in these talks: (1) Growing in Grace, especially in Faith, Hope and Charity; (2) Growing in our devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament; (3) Growing in our devotion to the Passion of Christi; and (4) Growing in our devotion to Mary.
These talks were given to pilgrims during a pilgrimage to Quito, Ecuador. Each day included Holy Mass, the Holy Rosary, the Novena to Our Lady of Good Success, numerous devotions and visiting holy shrines. The spiritual conferences, given each evening, include many stories from the lives of the saints, in particular those associated with Ecuador and saints who were Victim Souls. The pious Catholic will learn much from these talks regarding the spiritual life, especially how we are to bear our crosses and offer up our sufferings so as to make reparation for our sins and the sins of others. The conference talks also include various daily sermons and devotional prayers from the pilgrimage.
Here are a few comments from some listeners:
“Father has very clearly marked out for us the path towards sanctity.”
“This is a must hear for every Catholic that wants to get to heaven.”
“These are the best talks I have ever heard from Fr. Rodríguez, and that’s saying a lot!”
