More on the Franciscans of the Immaculate

Following up on an earlier post, "Franciscans of the Immaculate ordeal not over" (Musings, December 12, 2013), we have another thoroughgoing analysis from Adfero at Rorate (December 19, 2013), disputing statements from Catholic World Report, among other things, citing a "very well-informed source."

Update (12/22/13): "Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate fight back" (Rorate Caeli, December 22, 2013).

Update (12/23/12): Adfero, Franciscans of the Immaculate part 2, from our very well-informed source - Friars who signed petition told by Volpi they were "outside the Church" - Threatened to deny them Sacraments if they didn't sign retractions (Rorate Caeli, 23, 2013).

The persecution of the Franciscans of the Immaculate is transparent to this battered traditionalist. The theologians who founded the FFI such as Fr. Manelli and Fr. Fehlner are
integral Catholics and have a publishing arm that frightens
the Curia. It was the FFI that published Canon Brunero Gherardini's critique of Vatican II and the demand for clarification of its ambiguities. The FFI are well-
positioned in Italy to carry on an orthodox propaganda not helpful to the nouvelle theologie. Are you aware of the goings on at Rimini, where every Summer C and L hosts the avant garde clergy entertaining them with rock bands and male gymnasts.
