+J.M.J.+ A presentation by Mr. David Rodríguez, M.Th., on the importance of the Traditional Latin Mass, especially as it relates to the Message of Fatima brought from Heaven by Our Lady (celebrating the 100th anniversary of this most important event of the 20th century). There is an intimate link between the Message our Lady brought us one hundred years ago at Fatima, the crisis which has befallen the Church and the world, and the near disappearance of the Catholic Mass of the Ages. All Catholics should be made aware of this. Although many are familiar with the Traditional Mass and regularly assist, this talk is geared for an audience that may only be nominally familiar with the Mass. Nevertheless, it presents information that should be beneficial to all, even the most seasoned Latin Mass goers, as it serves as a reminder of why the Traditional Latin Mass is our heritage and our right. The apostolate of the St. Vincent Ferrer Foundation of Texas svfonline.org/ is focused upon recovering and restoring the beauty, truth, and majesty of our traditional Catholic Faith all over the world. This organization was founded by Catholic lay faithful to help spread, promote, and foster the practice of our traditional Catholic Faith in all its integrity: doctrine, morals, devotions, corporal and spiritual works of mercy, penance, mortification, liturgy, etc. As the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the source and summit of our Catholic life, we naturally also place a unique emphasis upon the Traditional Latin Mass. It is our heart-felt prayer that our humble efforts, in cooperation with God's manifold graces, will help individuals, families, society, and nations restore all things in Christ (omnia instaurare in Christo). We are firmly convinced that the recovery and restoration of our traditional Catholic Faith, including a return to the Traditional Latin Mass as the universal norm for the Holy Sacrifice, is an absolutely necessary step in bringing about an end to, and a cure for, the current grave crisis in the Church. Therefore, all of our efforts are also aimed at doing all things for the good of our Spiritual Mother, the one, holy, roman, and apostolic Catholic Church (omnia pro sanctis Matre Ecclesia). We invite all Catholics who share these goals and desires to unite themselves to the efforts of this apostolate. Each individual's union with these efforts is to be completely free-willed, and motivated by their conviction (and prayerful discernment) that God is indeed calling them to this work of recovery and restoration. David Rodríguez was born and raised in El Paso. As a child, he lived in Bavaria for four years giving him a lifelong appreciation for traveling and the glorious heritage of our Catholic Faith. He is fluent in English, Spanish and German. He graduated as valedictorian from the University of Texas - El Paso with a BS in Electrical Engineering in 1995, and worked in the semiconductor industry. After graduate school in engineering, he spent several years in a diocesan seminary and as a novice in a Cistercian monastery before earning his Masters Degree in Theology from the University of Dallas in 2003. David spent eight years working in parishes, directing religious formation, and in Catholic Radio, hosting call-in apologetic shows in English and Spanish. Since 2012, he has collaborated with the St. Vincent Ferrer Foundation of Texas, a non-profit corporation founded and run by lay traditional Catholics, which exists to help recover and restore our true Catholic Faith. He currently teaches weekly adult catechetical classes in English and Spanish, airs a weekly internet radio show, manages a website, gives monthly seminars in Mexico and the US, and publishes devotional Catholic resources. David has been a Catholic speaker at several conferences and recently served as a tour guide for pilgrims to Our Lady of Good Success in Quito, Ecuador.
