Sermons by Fr. Rodríguez in English

Drive Away Adversity

In today’s collect we ask God to free us from those things which shackle us down, preventing us from achieving our proper end. We face many physical, psychological and spiritual adversities, but our greatest adversary is most likely our own self. We can’t pursue virtue without cutting out vice. The Church always exorcises before baptizing. We only grow in sanctity if we stop sinning. Catholics shouldn’t see freedom negatively (freedom from restraints), but positively, that is being free for all that is good (rightly ordered as per God’s law). What is hindering you from pursuing God more fully in your vocation? Ask to be freed from it, receive it well when you are, and use your freedom to pursue God and His will.
