"Franciscans of the Immaculate: will Francis save them?"

"Sources: large numbers of FI priests petitioning to be relieved of pontifical vows," posted by Adfero (RC, May 14, 2014).

It may be recalled, as Sandro Magister reported (see here), that a couple, six of whose nine children are members of the Franciscans of the Immaculate (FI), made a personal plea to Pope Francis to help, in response which he was reported to have answered "soon, soon."

Adfero's post concludes: "Let us pray that soon the Holy Father will end this drastic intervention that he approved and save a beautiful order currently in critical condition."
