Updated: Aug 22, 2020

The following interview with internationally renowned Spiritual Theologian , Reverend Doctor Joseph Iannuzzi,  concerning the alleged messages of Fr. Rodrigue provides strong theological and pastoral confirmation of the 10 point negative assessment provided earlier by Dr. Mark Miravalle ( concerning the substantial and numerous theological, pastoral, and factual errors contained in the alleged message.  This interview, which first appeared on the House of Loretto website,, is reprinted with permission.

As a member of the International Marian Association (, I am happy to provide you with the following information on the Church’s present-day position on the alleged messages that have been circulated in Canada and elsewhere.

Below are three communications from a Catholic Bishop, the Vicar General and my interview with a Catholic priest and theologian who has obtained several advanced degrees from the Pontifical Universities of Rome.

Peace be with you,

I thank you for your e-mail requesting some information about the teaching and the standing of Father Michel Rodrigue, a priest incardinated in the diocese of Hearst-Moosonee, Ontario, and working in this diocese of Amos, Québec, for a few years. He is the founder of the Fraternité Saint-Benoît-Joseph-Labre, a lay association of the faithful which is not a religious institute. As you probably did too, I read on the Countdown to the Kingdom website related to Fr. Michel and also in the book of Christine Watkins, ‘The Warning. Testimonies and Prophecies the Illumination of Conscience’ (Note 84, p. 278 and p. 280), that: “Michel Rodrigue receives the full support of his bishop, and all of his locutions and visions are submitted to his local ordinary for approval.” This quotation was removed these
