Incompetence, malfeasance and brutal politics manifest at the highest levels of the Catholic Church

Franciscans of the Immaculate Exonerated:
Correction of Commissar Volpi After Notification by Manelli Family

A reader sums things up for us: Still to this day there are no proven or formal charges of heresy, crime, or schism!. The so called “internal conflict” was generated, cultivated, and maintained by a few and seemingly deliberately over the past few years. Some malcontents, not living their Marian Vow, influenced others and turned a number of hearts against their founding fathers. Machinations have been and are going on behind the scenes with sympathetic ears in the hierarchy who do not care for anything of the traditional aspects of the Holy Church, even those the faithful have a full right to.

Reports of great suffering, even hunger, among the brothers is coming forward. Pray for the complete exoneration of the founders and a restoring of this holy Institute according to their direction and not the direction of a commissar or malcontents. A number of friars cannot in good conscience take the oath that the Novus Ordo is a ‘traditional’ expression of the Mass. It is not even though a valid liturgy. A number of friars are going home. The seminary is disbanded and holy vocations scattered.

Editor’s note: Once again, we have religious liberty for everyone, except for Traditional Catholics. That fellow who claimed, “Who am I to judge?” should have heeded his own words. Now we have the makings of a genuine scandal on our hands – and a totally unjust and unnecessary scandal, to boot! The military eqivalent of this kind of thing would be deliberately firing on your own troops. And that’s known as treason!

Somebody needs to get fired over this, but we all know that’s not going to happen. Why? Because instead of opposing and deposing the clerics who have worked to destroy the Catholic Church over the last forty years, the boys in the Vatican are instead, promoting them – and planning to declare a couple of them who have already died – as saints!

The danger of subscribing to the falacious “prosperity” Gospel

Greed is often downplayed today where accumulation and ostentatious display of wealth is often celebrated.  Great rooms with cathedral ceilings, 72″ flat screen TVs and even private home theaters (entertainment centers), fancy cars etc., are shamelessly flaunted.

But greed is at the root of a lot of evils and suffering. Scripture says,

For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world; but if we have food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and hurtful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs. (1 Tim 6:7-10)
