Rest in peace, good and faithful servant!

null

We are saddened to hear the news that Fr. Vladimir Kozina died yesterday. Fr. Kozina — who wrote the book “Communism as I know it” and whose parents were assassinated by the communists — kept the Traditional Latin Mass alive in Oakland at St. Margaret Mary Church.

The following is some biographical information and quotes from this great priest, courageously compiled by The Catholic Voice:

Birthplace: Zapotok, Slovenia
Ordination: May 27, 1945, in Anras, Austria

***
It seems to me that, because of unnatural sexual behavior against minors committed by some homosexual priests, quite many priests have lost confidence in their sacred mission, perhaps even in the mission of the Church. They live in fear and confusion.

Not only the Church, but the whole world, is “wrapped up in darkness” (Jb 37:19), in a very mysterious darkness! We look for light and all is dark…

Yes, all is dark for a priest who, due to the lack of prayer and prudence, has lost the right discernment of his priestly vocation, forgetting the assurance of Jesus Christ given to the apostles, his first priests, on the occasion of the Last Supper: “In the world you will have affliction. But take courage, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

We priests should not only remind ourselves of Christ’s counsel: “If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Mt. 16, 24-25) and be close to Jesus Christ, the Eternal High Priest.

We should be close also to His mother and our Mother—Mary, who is the immaculate Mother of God and our shield against this mysterious darkness. In her motherly tenderness and love, Mary, our mother, has given us a most precious gift—her beloved Son who is the Light that “shines in the dark, a light that darkness could not overcome” (John 1:3).

May our Lord Jesus Christ, the Light of the World (John 9:5), scatter the darkness of sin and restore peace and courage in our priestly hearts.

Let His love, through the intercession of His and our mother, Mary, dispel all fear and confusion and shine brightly in our hearts for the greater glory of God and the salvation of immortal souls.

Please, take a moment and pray for the repose of the soul of this faithful priest. Requiescat in pace.

    PRAYER FOR A DECEASED PRIEST

    O God, Thou didst raise Thy servant Vladidmir
    to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ according to the Order of Melchisedech,
    giving him the sublime power to offer the Eternal Sacrifice
    to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar
    and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own Holy Name.
    We beseech Thee to reward his faithfulness
    and to forget his faults,
    admitting him speedily into Thy Holy Presence,
    there to enjoy forever the recompense of his labours.
    This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

  4. Just a footnote; I hope the current occupant of the Chair of Peter knows that Father Kozina has passed, and I hope that he knows about his life, his book, and that his parents were murdered by the communists. Perhaps if he did he would amend this asinine statement (one of many) which he stated in his interview with Andrea Tornielli in December: “The Marxist ideology is wrong. BUT I HAVE MET MANY MARXISTS IN MY LIFE WHO ARE GOOD PEOPLE, so I don’t feel offended,” Tell that to Father Kozina, his parents and to the million s of faithful Catholics and their loved ones who were, and are, likewise murdered and tortured by the commies these last one hundred years!
    Rest in peace Father Kozina.
