On Mortification
2009 Lenten Parish Mission Talks - Fr. Michael Rodríguez

Theme of Mission: God wills our sanctification, but we must be willing to mortify ourselves. Every disciple of Christ must live a certain degree of asceticism; yet this essential aspect of Catholic spirituality often goes unmentioned today.

We must mortify ourselves if we wished to be saved, for reaching heaven is not easy. Our Lord said: "Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!"

Fr. Rodríguez explains the Purgative Way: how one must keep custody of his eyes, ears and tongue, one must purify his passions, mortify his interior senses (memory and imagination) and his higher spiritual faculties (mind and will) as well.

The practice of mortification is a hallmark of our authentic Catholic tradition. If we wish to restore our Faith, we must recover and practice this essential discipline. The Spiritual Life is a battle and only he who is willing to crucify his flesh and its lusts will emerge victorious!
