On December 8, 2013, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Father Fidenzio Volpi closed the seminary operated by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate. The FFI was an order dedicated to the Mass in the Extraordinary Form and to other time-held traditions of Holy Mother Church. They drew many vocations as you will see in the video posted below. I and other bloggers have written about the draconian treatment meted out to this order, and to the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate. The only motive that seems logical in the face of such behavior is the wanton destruction of the Deposit of Faith entrusted to Holy Mother Church by Our Lord.
Rorate Caeli has obtained video of the daily life within this seminary, taken by one of the seminarians on the very day the seminary was shuttered. Please read Rorate's account of the horrid way in which these young men have been treated. Circulate this widely. Pray that sanity returns to those entrusted with guarding and shepherding the Church. Now the video, as obtained and promulgated by Rorate Caeli.
