Don Minutella Challenges Clergy to a Theological Joust

Edit: Dons Quixote and Minutella are far more admirable than shills like John Allen and most of the Italian senior clergy.

ROME – In Cervantes’ famed novel Don Quixote, the lead character is a deluded noble who imagines himself a knight and lives in a chivalric world of his own imagination. The story has proved so popular it’s even given us a word, “quixotic,” to mean someone who’s unrealistic, impractical, driven by unattainable ideals.

If Cervantes were alive today and living in Italy, he wouldn’t need to dream up such a figure. All he’d probably need to do is to follow around Father Alessandro Maria Minutella.

Minutella, who’ll turn 47 in September, is a Sicilian priest who was declared excommunicated latae santentiae by Cardinal Corrado Lorefice of Palermo in 2017, for the crimes of “heresy and schism.” He’s a fierce traditionalist who now aspires to lead what he calls the “Catholic resistance,” forming a “small remnant” who spurn the “false Bergoglian church” (a reference to Pope Francis’s given name) and declare their allegiance to Pope Benedict XVI (who, of course, has never solicited such a following.)

This guy was profiled by John Allen. I think some credit on the source would at the very least be polite.

The link is already in the byline, boomer.

Zurich is a long way to go from rural Indiana for a cup of joe.

The text on the blog did not have a byline hyperlink, at least in Safari. Than you to Zurich coffee drinker for the reference. I would not have known what the point of the post was if I had not read it.

I’ve got Safari too.

The Archbishop of Palermo and Fr. Alessandro Minutella interpret Vatican Council II with the false premise.

I do not interpret Vatican Council II with the false premise and so the Council is in harmony with EENS. Syllabus etc.

The difference between say a Mark Shea and the above Priest is that Mark rather crawls on his belly than fly with the Saints. In our permanent search of purpose can be ¨found in the implied admonition that we go through life being Sancho or Quixote, following stomach or imagination, crawling or flying. And this interpretation is romantic, trite and true.¨
