FOR THE RECORD: Rorate Caeli

Ed. Note: Why am I not surprised that this is happening. When they are not promoting buggery, Francis and his henchmen are meting out thuggery. But I digress…

"Just call me Pepe"

Just call me Pepe!

For my new readers, this blog has been following the trials and tribulations of the Franciscans of the Immaculate since its onset. Many of you are looking for explanations, and the Deus Ex Machina blog has the answer.

The destruction of the Franciscans of the Immaculate is playing out on two levels: worldly and supernatural.

On a strictly material level, the Franciscans of the Immaculate fell prey to one of the main Franciscan branches, the Order of Friars Minor (OFM). This branch of the order was run by one Bishop “Just call me Pepe” Rodriguez Carballo, who was responsible for the order falling on hard times, shall we say. Actually, the Order of Franciscan’s Minor is insolvent with a substantial debt liability. (see here). One of Francis’ first appointments was to make “Just call me Pepe” Carballo the Secretary, or “number 2” of the Congregation for Consecrated Life. After Bishop Carbollo was appointed, he installed the notorious Fr. Volpi at the Franciscans of the Immaculate in an attempt to take over the property and personnel of this rapidly expanding religious order. To the surprise if not outright shock, Carballo and Volpi found out that the FFI actually took their vow of poverty seriously. And since they took the vow of poverty seriously, the order did not own any property. This fiasco ended in embarrassment when the charges of financial irregularities proved false. However, a few months later, the ‘god of surprises’ turned up at the Friars Minor as per the link above. But it looks like the ‘gods of surprises’ sometime show up in pairs. The second sighing was observed when a large part of the FFI asked to be let out of their vows. And it is that ‘god of surprises’ that the below re-blogged Rorate Caeli post pertains to.

On a supernatural level, what we are seeing is the outright battle of Good against evil. The manner in which Carbollo explained the FFI actions to Francis was in terms of the FFI posing a threat to the 1960’s hippie church. And Francis has taken an active part in this suppression ever since. If one looks at this situation on a higher level, one can plainly see this ultimate fight between the forces of Light and dark. This battle is playing out on the supernatural battlefield in a death struggle that the conciliar church is waging with Eternal Rome. From reading the below, one really gets a good idea of how incompatible Modernism and Catholicism really are. I would just like to draw your attention dear reader, to another post that was published at Rorate Caeli that explains the essence of the tragedy of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. The post is by John Lamont titled Attacks on Thomism. (see here). The key passage is as follows:

The key to the neomodernist capture of power is however also the reason for their failure to sustain a religious culture. Neomodernism is not like Protestantism, which contains ideas with a positive content as well as being a rejection of Catholicism. These ideas – justification by faith, and the like – are not correct, but they say something substantial, and have an appeal that can give rise to an important movement. Neomodernism, however, on a religious level is a purely negative thesis. As a result it has no attractive force of its own, and ecclesiastical structures that fall into its grip eventually die away – a process now visible all over the world. This is one thing that on the natural level permitted the survival of Thomism, despite the drastic measures taken to uproot it from the Church; unlike neomodernism, it has something positive and substantial to say. Moreover, what it has to say is actually true. This is in no way a guarantee of broad success, but it ensures the continued existence of Thomism in the small constituency of good scholars who are concerned with the truth and in a position to discover it. Whether it will expand much beyond this constituency in the future is unknown, but there is no doubt that its future shows more promise than that of neomodernism.

Two further posts are recommended that provide a fuller understand of the logical progression that occurred in the 20th century away from Thomism and mutated into the present strain of the  neo-moderist religion. The links are The Negative Theology of Francis (here) and Vital Imminence Revisited from the Radical Catholic blog (here).

And one last note. Please remember that all of this that is happening is a distraction. It is intended to keep the eyes of Tradition off of the real important events that will be taking place starting in 9 days, i.e. the Consistory (see here) and the Synod that will be commencing in 242 days.

Below, is a re-blog from the Rorae Caeli blog.

Totalitarian Dictatorship in the Franciscans of the Immaculate: Pontifical Commissioner Illegally Suspends Without Due Process Six Friars Who Sought Shelter


The ongoing affair of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate has arrived at a point at which Commissioner Fidenzio Volpi, who is responsible for this disaster, is wildly delivering blows like a giant Polyphemus, beyond every rule of Canon Law, common sense, plain charity, and even human logic. Rorate has learned that Volpi has in fact suspended “a divinis” six Friars (names withheld for their protection) who are under the care of bishops outside of Italy who have welcomed them and are awaiting their dispensations from their vows from the Congregation for Religious.
