Sermons by Fr. Rodríguez in English

Brilliant Trinitarian Theophany

Consider the vision which Sr. Lucia received at Tuy on 13 June 1929. Accompanying the divine command to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary are (1) a magnificent revelation of the one Triune God which human words can never even begin to describe, and (2) a striking reference to Holy Mass as a Sacrifice. As the consecration has not been obeyed, Catholics have largely forgotten these two truths. The Mass exists to give perfect adoration, praise and thanksgiving to the Infinite Majesty of the Triune God (maiestas Domini). Catherine of Siena was left speechless and cried with Jeremias when she saw the ineffable mysteries of God (arcana Dei). The Traditional Mass and the New Mass are by no means the same, because the Traditional Mass is permeated by the majesty and ineffably mystery of God, whereas the New Mass tends towards celebrating man. Two simple ways by which we can more fully participate [correctly] in the Mass are: [1] value the silence; [2] pray for the grace to meditate on the arcana Dei. “O God, send an angel with a burning coal from the altar to touch my heart and lips, and purify me, if needs be by fire, so that I may be capable of dwelling upon Thy mysteries, singing Thy praises and loving Thee.”
