One of the greatest theologians of the last half of the century

Ditto.

This is best collection of his talks in one place I found once: https://archive.org/details/FatherHesse

And on his personal website https://gregorius-hesse.at you can find a collection in German as well

Just realized that we have a new YT channel dedicated to fr. Hesse talks. A nice compilation of https://archive.org/details/FatherHesse and video tapes.

It all can be found here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC91jLHQF8j_xTIK0XbyX7ug/videos

Nice job!

Wish he was still alive. Would love to hear his take on Francis.

Yes, the audio quality is wonderful.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Fr. Hesse did a lot waking people up.  I'm Gen X, so as a young adult I was smack dab in it.  The neo Catholics would call us heretics and schismatics.  I suspect now that some of the material we used in debates originated from Fr. Hesse.  And we won those debates.  So I am grateful to Fr. Hesse and others like (future saint) Archbishop Lefebvre, who opened my eyes and taught me about Tradition.  After Pope Benedict said that the TLM was never abrogated, and especially after Bergoglio, the neo Catholics have disappeared, at least in coming on Trad forums and calling us heretics.

I always liked his love of wine.  Hard core on theology, but definitely not a Jansenist.
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"All sorrow leads to the foot of the Cross.  Weep for your sins."

"Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him"

I learned a lot from him, may God bless his soul.

That might possibly be his "Two Worm-Ridden Popes" conference?
