Apostolic Commissar Admits Guilt of Defaming the Franciscans of the Immaculate

Saint Peter in Chains
Edit: we were just wondering what had happened to this, as the wheels of Italian justice turned, however slowly.  We'd pointed out earlier that Father Volpi, the Apostolic Commissar of the Bishop of Rome's current persecution of the Franciscans of the Immaculate Heart, had libeled the same.  We'd also reported that the family Manelli had exonerated themselves and Father Manelli, citing Katholisches and Chiesa e post concilio) the founder of the FFI, in court.

Now it looks like Father Volpi may have to go to prison for libel, if he doesn't fulfill the requirements of publicly apologizing on all the websites he runs and paying a cash settlement to the Manellis, which is a criminal offense.  We wonder what will become of this as it plays out.  Surely, there wasn't much coverage of it when it happened, will this order be allowed, as Rorate asks, to survive and thrive as it once did in defense of the Church?

Chiesa e post concilio asks if this is the result of the prayers, fasts, rosaries offered.

Evidently, not all is lost.  Here's Rorate:



Rorate Caeli contributor Francesca Romana has translated the first report from Chiesa e post concilio reporting that Fr. Volpi will pay the family of Franciscans of the Immaculate founder Fr. Manelli a large cash sum for his "defamation and lies" and make public apologies on all websites he runs.  
For regular readers of this blog, you know that Fr. Volpi was brought in for just one reason: to crush one of the fastest-growing, traditional-minded religious orders in the world -- but not on his own: as he admitted in the past, he was "specifically ordered by the Vicar of Christ," Pope Francis to carry out his mission.
Our questions now are simple: 
Will Pope Francis now finally rein this man in and force his boot of the throat of an order that only wants to serve God as the saints have all served Him for two millennia?
And will Pope Francis finally end this unjust commissioning and allow the poor friars who have had to flee the grip of this cruel man to return to their sworn vows and live out the remainder of their vocations in peace? We pray to hear in the affirmative soon.

What a disgraceful person. Lying is a sin. Maybe he will repent during Lent. Francis is no better. Vultures of a feather flock together.

C. Kasper was caught in public lies and continues on with impunity. The pope has chosen a number of unsavory men and keeps them on...

More prayers! This isn't over yet!

Anyone have links to 'the websites that [Volpi] runs?'

Before long, Pope Francis himself will be implicated. This will be yet another scandal under him.
I've already read that very many Cardinals, (and not always the good, traditional ones, but also some surprisingly liberal ones), are shocked and appalled at how Francis has degraded the Papacy and run roughshod over everyone in his way. Volpi was a Francis man. He is now brought down. The pressure must be left on until he is removed. As well as many other of Francis associates.
In the end, Francis has ruined the Church to such an extent that he must be forced out (if he doesn't die in time).

Get rid of Cardial Braz de Aviz at the Sacred Congregation for Religious as well. He is corrupt and a radical liberal.

The websites that Volpi controls include those run by the "new" FFI. This venal priest will argue he was only folowing orders; remember he couldn't order bishops not to incardinate fleeing friars. That would have to had come from much higher up. He will probably be made to disappear while the real perpetrator remains untouched. After all, Francis has been careful never to commit himself publicly to the suppression. He will hide behind those who will take the fall.
Maybe it's the beginning of the end - don't think Francis will give up that easily - and our prayers must continue for the end to this wicked persecution of a good and noble order.

His Masters won't be happy about this.....after all Francis is just one of them, will not be touched, as always, great fishes devour little ones, it's the same old story.....in te speravi,Domine, non confundar in aeternum.

We must pray for the end of Pope Francis and his reign of terror. When he goes, so will all the rest....Mariadiaga, O'Malley, Kasper, Forte, Ricca, Volpi, Dolan, Marx, etc. etc. etc.

Dear Lord save us from Pope Francis!!!!!

Genty, Does not the article specifically say that the suppression was ordered by Francis?

Read the entire article said...

"And it was confirmed in writing by Pope Francis, which made any recourse to appeal not possible."

Marie said...

Who or which court or what authority ordered Volpi to rectify his errors? I went to the Chiesa website and it says there that their only source of this report is Don Camillo, who is a friend of the Manelli family. It didn't even say that Don Camillo got this news from the Manellis.

It would be so nice to see more details on this.

Genty said...

Anon, What is quoted is hearsay but no-one doubts for a minute that Francis is the instigator. How could it be otherwise? The point I am making is that Francis himself has been very careful never to state in public that he is suppressing the FFI. Indeed, when begged in public by relatives of the FFI's founder father Fr Stefano Manelli for respite, his infamous reply was: "Soon, soon."

UPDATE:

UPDATE: Corrispondenza Romana has a copy of the court record and is reporting that Fr. Volpi has a deadline of March 3 for paying the damages to the Manelli family and making public apologies. In addition to the numerous ways he must publicly apologize, listed in our original report below, he must also now issue a press release distributed through AGI (the Italian news agency).

Corrispondenza Romana also asked if Fr. Volpi will resign. We believe there is a more critical question: Why hasn't Pope Francis publicly fired him and ended this unjust and unwarranted commissioning that he himself started?

Marie said...

Thanks, Anon. Rorate has a report on this, linked to the court order. What great news, and I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall.
God bless.

I wish some enormous scandal would explode in Francis' face.....something like someone coming out of the woodwork (someone who knows), and says that the Papal election of Bergoglio in 2013 was rigged, planned, and campaigned for during the conclave. All would be a violation of the conclave rules....making the election of Francis invalid.

Everone knows they were rushing at the conclave to have a Pope elected and enthroned before Easter so he could officiate at the Masses. What a stupid reason to rush a Papal election. But evernone knows it was rushed through...with only 1 candidate pushed for.....Bergoglio.
I wish it would come out that his election was planned and thus invalid. What a surprise and relief for the Church.....what an embarrassment for Francis. He would have to go back to being known as Bergoglio!

But we would still have Benedict XVI....who looked fairly good on Saturday.

I am afraid this last development in the FFI's destruction will become a huge scandal in the Vatican.
How can Pope Francis continue to approve the havoc caused on the FFI order by their Vatican appointed persecutor who just was obliged to acknowledge having lied and defamed the superior of this order up to the point that he was condemend by the civil justice (not the canonical one !) to a heavy fine and obliged to publicly apologize in an humiliating way.
In the person of Fr Volpi, this is a slap in the face of Francis, not less.
Thanks God, the prayers of the holy friars to our Blessed Mother, begging Him justice didn't spent too long unanswered.
Let's rejoice ! God is Great.

How dare are you who spoke against the Holy Father? Have fear, because the wrath of God will fall upon you who speak ill against His Vicar.

jac said...

There was no insult against our Holy Father. Wo are you to judge me? Who are you to draw the wrath of God on me?
I just said that the Pope made a big mistake in appointing a liar and a slanderer as apostolic commissar with a task that looks well some months later like a pure destruction of the FFI order since Fr Volpi himself boasted to have the "full approval of the Pope".
Not only was this appointment a mistake but it was illicit like this was proven later in the case of the FSI order (Franciscan Sisters) who hardly avoided that same fate in filing a successful canonical suit near the Apostolic Signature Court: The hierachy was deemed right by this Court in carrying out an "inspection" of this order but it was denied any corrective action except by the Pope himself.
The serious slanders of Volpi against Fr Manelli and his family were purported thefts and ownership transfers. But the first steps he acted against the FFI was to forbid them to say the Tridentine Mass though pope Benedict bestowed this right to every catholic priest in an irrevocable way. So, why such a haste? Is the traditional latin mass so harmful?
Now every body sees the guilt of the FFI: They were deemed to "traditional", not enough in connection with the postconciliar modernism of the Church and vowed to destruction for that only reason.
It was highly laughable to hear some of the outcome of the FSI's inspection. These poor and holy women were told by their female inspector that "they were too cloistered (!), they prayed too much (!), they made too much penances (!)"...

Here is the new letter from Rev. Fr. Volpi:

I exort all to examine their conscience and make a good confession!

This all makes the hounding of Abp Lefebvre in 1974, and the denial of justice to him by those wretched creatures Montini & Gaillot, look all the more repulsive, because all the more plausible. Rome deserves the ferocious denunciation that Dante puts in the mouth of St Peter in Paradiso 27.

At least it will be impossible in the future to maintain the idea that Popes, bishops & other clergy are beyond reproach, & must never, ever, be criticised: the rascality, chicanery, deceitfulness, blatant immorality, moral cowardice, treacherousness, injustice, unchastity, simony, unorthodoxy, stupidity, & other vices of the hierarchy - Popes most definitely included - have seen to that. People are much more likely to say that no-one with even a scrap could sink so low as to be a Catholic bishop. What these people need is a good & thorough kicking.

James said...

with even a scrap = with even a scrap of integrity could...

susan said...

oh yeah, and that's why, because Volpi wouldn't lie???? Gimme a break....you oughta go into comedy....or work for the obama regime.

Tancred said...

i think they believe in the power of penance, but only as a psycho-social reality affecting those they believe are uneducated.

The modernists never lie...
They only make "mental restrictions", and therefore they never sin.

They always tell the subjective truth, just not the objective truth.

Someone coming out and saying the papal election was rigged....you mean like this?

"I knew long in advance, at least seven months before. And I had many doubts. We debated the topic at length after it seemed already decided. I told him: Holy Father, you must bestow upon us the third volume on Jesus of Nazareth and the encyclical of faith, before you sign things over to Pope Francis."

He knew 7 months before Benedict resigned not only that he was resigning but also (from the way this is worded) that Francis was coming.

Francis can continue to put up with it because he planned it...obviously.

"or work for the obama regime" just like Francis. Honestly, its obvious that Francis was handpicked by the NWO to be the pope after they pushed Benedict out, because Francis is Obama. Francis is a white/spanish Obama to push the Obama agenda on whites and Hispanics....that's all he is.
