Court: Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate Commisioner Volpi guilty of defamation and lies, must pay 20K Euros, make public apology

If this report is true, this is utterly deplorable. For English account see Adfero's post (RR, February 17, 2015). The Franciscans of the Immaculate have been eviscerated as a result.

There is no easy way to express the magnitude of the destruction of this religious order. There is, however, the following video we posted back on February 2nd of this year, a video claimed to have been obtained exclusively by Rorate, in which the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate filmed an entire day, documenting the way of life in their seminary for posterity. That day was December 8, 2013, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the very day the Theological Seminary of the Immaculate Mediatrix (STIM) was closed by their Apostolic Commissioner, Fr. Fidenzio Volpi.

Update (2/27/2015): Confirmed: court record confirming Volpi must pay by March 3rd, etc.

I thought this was going to be all over the blogs today. It was Rorate, and here, and no where else of report so far. I don't get it. I assumed this was going to be big news.

I think people are ignoring it because the logical conclusion is too much for them to handle. Volpi is just the henchman, not the mastermind.
