Father Michel Rodrigue was born near the city of Rimouski in the province of Quebec and is the 23rd child of a family of 23 children. He grew up on the family farm and felt a calling to the priesthood as early as the age of three. After that call, our Lord Jesus and our Blessed Mother would sometimes personally assist and guide Father Michel during key moments of his life through inner locutions.
He attended the Grand Seminary of Quebec after high school, but was only ordained at the age of 30 after having founded and managed a shelter that offered psychological and spiritual help to the youth living on the streets. After having been a parish priest for 5 years in northern Ontario, his bishop discerned that Father Michel’s talents would be put to better use if he became a Sulpician priest and taught. Hence, Father Michel set off for the Grand Seminary of Montreal and taught theology to seminarians for the next 15 years. He also taught at the Grand Seminary of Edmonton in Alberta.
Over the course of his life, the Lord led Father Michel to acquire a vast experience in many areas. Not only is he very knowledgeable in the fields of management, of psychology and of theology, especially spiritual theology, but he also has been very involved in the Charismatic Renewal ever since its beginnings. With the gifts of healing and deliverance the Holy Spirit bestowed on him, he has been asked to preach at many charismatic retreats and at Catholic events of all kinds. Unbeknownst to him, this was divine Providence preparing him for his final mission for the Church. During the night of Christmas Eve 2009, God the Father himself asked Father Michel to be the founder of a new religious fraternity, the Apostolic Fraternity of Saint Benedict Joseph Labre. Father is now the Superior General of this fraternity which is established in the diocese of Amos, Quebec, 400 miles north-west of Montreal.
