Commissar Closes Another Friary of the Franciscans of the Immaculata

Church of San Pasquale in Benevento
Friary of the Franciscans of the
Immaculate Heart Closed
(Rome) The Apostolic Commissar Father Fidenzio Volpi is closing,  with the Secretary General, Father Alfonso Bruno, another friary of the Franciscans of the Immaculate (FI). In the Italian town of Benevento, just 40 kilometers away from the mother house of the Order in Frigento (Diocese of Avellino). The monastery of San Pasquale is closed.
The decision is symbolic. In Benevento (1915-1996) a decree was signed on June 22, 1990 on the eve of the feast of the Sacred Heart, by Archbishop Carlo Minchiatti for the establishment of the Order by diocesan right. The Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is thus the canonical founding of the Franciscans of the Immaculate . On that Sunday, in 1990  the first 30 monks professed their vows.
The Monastery of San Pasquale has existed for many years. The pastoral care of the faithful was initially in the new Rite, but with entry into force of the motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum a parallel was established in the traditional rite. In addition to daily Mass in the Immemorial Rite, daily Eucharistic Adoration was held.
The presence of the Franciscans of the Immaculate and their pastoral care were all the more precious because otherwise, no other priests or religious celebrate the Immemorial Rite in the Archdiocese of Benevento. 
With the provisional administration, the Beneventese believers were deprived of all the traditional Rites, as the priest of the Order were prohibited from  the celebration of the Immemorial Mass. Now they are also deprived of the Order, where it has its canonical origin.
A faithful of the Archdiocese of Benevento wrote  a letter to the website Messa in Latino : "It raises the question: Is the reform, which the commissioner has boasted, to restore the Order back to its 'original'  spirit, that is to say, where  the monasteries are closed and the faithful are deprived through the widespread doctrinal confusion in the Diocese where today people are more in need of pastoral care for  salvation?"

So, how soon is soon again? Ah, yes, when they are ground to dust.

Is Pope Francis the ISIS of Catholicism?

john said...

Yes, he is.

Be prepared to see one or more English speaking friaries in the near future.

David said...

Now, the final bulwark, cardinal Burke, will be removed and the church will leave us.

STEPHEN - Roodepoort said...

The Friars faithful to the Traditional Rite should just leave and join with a traditional group and then get themselves on their own feet again. Sadly, the Catholic Faith is not to be found in Rome anymore.

The hour of darkness will soon be here. May God strengthen us in these times. May Our Blessed Mother pray for us. May St. Michael defend us in battle against satan and his minions. +JMJ+

Pope Francis said he expected to die in two or three years. With prayers and luck, maybe it will be sooner than he thinks. Pray for the Holy Father, that this intention/premonition of his comes true quickly....for the sake of the Church.

That is exactly what they should do. And they should not fear the "excommunication" boogeyman. That scarecrow fell off the stick long ago! Jesus did not leave us orphans. There are places of refuge. These poor religious who are being abused by the hirelings need to take shelter.

How are things in beautiful, beautiful Roodeport?

The church will leave us? Bulwark? Burke?? Boy are you confused.

Could Volpe and company be ccovert agents of the SSPX?

All these comments sound as though God has no notion of what's going on. Praying for the early death of Pope Francis? Really? You should be ashamed of yourself.
Obviously God is allowing this to happen for some reason, but He sees the whole picture. Just pray and fast that God's will be done.

What on earth makes you think that the SSPX would want to suppress the FFI?

Anon 9/19 7:33AM. All it takes for evil to happen is for good men to do nothing (but fast and pray)! When God's will is clear, it is your duty to stand up for it, i.e. "But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men" Acts 5:29 (please note the name of the book is "ACTS"!)

If you can't tell Pope Francis is preaching lies and advocating acts that will send souls to hell for all eternity then I am not sure whom you are praying to anyway, but he has no right to persecute those who are faithful to the Gospel and no right to close down their monasteries any more than the high priests had a right to kill Jesus Christ and order the apostles to stop preaching His Gospel.

The world is in the mess it's in because of the apostate devils that have seized control of the Catholic Church. They are in league with demons and principalities and I pray every day God will send his angels to defeat them and strengthen those who are opposing them.

"What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath--prepared for destruction?" Romans 9:22

even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness, declares the Lord God
Ezek 14:14

An excellent protestant reply!

"Tutti Tenebre" said St. Pio, "Tutti Tenebre"

The devil's real target is the Sisters. He will release his full fury on them. Paradoxical this may also be a saving grace for the Church. By their sacrifice and sufferings it will usher in the 5th Marian Dogma.

The monastery that needs to be closed is St. John's Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota which is a hotbed for sexual misconduct. Visit behindthepinecurtain.com if you doubt.

Anonymous... It is you who have the Protestant understanding of the papacy. Your idea of pope is not that of a father morally bound to care for his family, but of a tyrant who does whatever he wills. An unjust excommunication is no communication at all. Read Aquinas, and learn. Lord, save us from these neo-Catholics!

LeonG said...

Hardly a bulwark, come on be factual please - compromiser yes but now in a the enviable position of making a real and sincere choice to support the Roman Catholic Church - indeed the one he has been compromising with his liberal modernist associates until it looked "safe" to be more orthodox during the hybridist interregnum of Benedict XV.
Sacred Tradition in its entirety or liberal modernism and its pantheist imperatives? Pray Burke opts for the former. Our Blessed Lady does not like compromise, neither does She like ecumenism. Cardinal Burke take note.
I pray for him - fortitude, counsel and wisdom.

LeonG said...

Yes Stephen - and Archbishop Lefebvre said that in the 1970s repeating it again and again until he passed on. And how many of us believed him?

LeonG said...

On the contrary Anonymous, whoever you are. We want Francis to finish the job and wreck the NO because it cannot become the Roman catholic Church again. We want a true restoration not a neo-con job.

LeonG said...

God is having a clearance to rid Himself of the dross and the unfaithful. Deo Gratias. We can see them for what they are now. No one can pretend otherwise. the church is being run by liberal modernists - ecumenists and compromisers; the luke-warm and the scatterers whom Our Blessed Lord has condemned.

LeonG said...

There are many of these - they will collapse in the devil's hour once he tires of them and looks for other useful victims. The liberal modernist church has no will to discipline because this would be to act contrary to their nature which is libertarian, non-judgmental and hateful of tradition.

The SSPX has many spies in the Church. They have "their people" in the highest places in the Vatican, one example is Archbishop Ganswein, who went to seminary in Econe. Fr. Volpi acted like a liberal his entire life as a Capuchin to gain the trust of liberal bishops and now he's destroying Church approved traditionalists so that the SSPX is the only game in town. Benedict XVI lifted the excommunications because he read the writings on the wall, he tried to soften the blow. Once the the SSPX has "their man" sitting on the throne of Peter they will bring the return of the medieval Church and will destroy all the progress of Vatican II (not to be confused with the Spirit of Vatican II which was the "council of the media" as Pope Benedict XVI said). Due to their birth rates and evangelization techniques, the SSPX is growing rapidly. Because of their conservative/ancient-Church-like appeal, if "their man" ever becomes Pope (which is looking more and more likely with the anti-Francis backlash amongst Cardinals), many disenfranchised protestants in the UK, USA, and Germany will convert to Catholicism, the medieval style Catholicism. The Catholic Church will once again have the powers it did in Medieval times.

Sincerely,
Dan Brown

"[6] Set thou the sinner over him: and may the devil stand at his right hand. [7] When he is judged, may he go out condemned; and may his prayer be turned to sin. [8] May his days be few: and his bishopric let another take. [9] May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. [10] Let his children be carried about vagabonds, and beg; and let them be cast out of their dwellings." - Psalm 108 (Vulgate)

The post-Vatican II "Liturgy of the Hours" does not contain that entire Psalm.

Of course, God "knows what's going on"! God never wills evil. He gave man free will so that he might freely choose good, but he often, and as we see everywhere in the Church today, chooses evil. God gave us reason and with the graces made available to us, we know that we have a positive duty to fight evil no matter where it comes from, even the Pope. The evil in the world is due to man rebelling against God and following the Devil. Continuous state of mortal sin darkens the intellect and hardens the will. We are not let off the hook because our Church leaders are teaching lies - we have the knowledge and graces from the sacraments, etc. to defend the unchanging Faith and moral law.

One cannot be excommunicated for being true to the unchanging Deposit of Faith and the Divine Law. The Faith does not change according to a worldly pope's ideas.

I am saddened by the fact that Freemasons (controlled by Kabbalist Zionism) have taken over the Vatican by murder and blackmail. (see JP1 for murder and Paul VI for blackmail). and created a false church that knows their most powerful foe is the Traditional and only true Mass.) I love our Church and am perplexed about just what to do. I am currently attending an FSSP Church and love it. Will they be next on Bergoglio's list to demolish? Read my book, Apocalypse Zion, that suggests what we can do in a "factional genre". Email me for a free copy at epperlyrobert@yahoo.com
