Don Minutella Barred From Shrine at Ars — “False Prophet” Extolled to Teach Pope’s Magisterium

Don Minutella is prevented by the church rector of Ars from entering the sanctuary. An visiting priest of Ars holds up a prepared sign indicating that Don Minutella should recognize Francis as a legitimate Pope.

(Paris) The website of the Sanctuaire d'Ars states that the basilica of Ars, the parish house of St. John Maria Vianney and the chapel where the heart of the holy pastor of Ars is kept are open to all and can be visited daily "for free.” In reality this is not true for everyone, at least not for the priest Don Minutella from the Archdiocese of Palermo and his group of pilgrims. He was forbidden access. How is that?

Don Minutella received international attention for his criticism of Pope Francis' administration. The Sicilian priest was pastor of a social hotspot west of the city on the Tyrrhenian Sea. He is also the founder of a spiritual community called Little Garden of Nazareth in the Archdiocese of Monreale. For his apostolate, he uses modern means of communication, especially the Internet. Because of his loyalty to the Catholic faith, he became a sought-after preacher throughout Italy. Under Pope Benedict XVI.  he discovered that he “personally preferred” the traditional form of the Roman rite in which he has since celebrated.

In autumn 2015, Pope Francis appointed a new Archbishop of Palermo, who was inaugurated in December 2015. Under him, the conflict came to a head. Unlike his predecessor, he did not want to be patient with Don Minutella. The archbishop admonished the priest and eventually deprived him of his parish, despite the request of the faithful to leave their pastor. But the archbishop did not withdraw from his punitive action. Don Minutella was declared a troublemaker. Without office, he left the Archdiocese of Palermo and retired to his establishment in the neighboring archbishopric Monreale. The long arm of the Archbishop of Palermo was there, too. The city council of Monreale issued a demolition order for the establishment of the spiritual community. Don Minutella, who had been silent himself, said nothing. The staff spoke of a flimsy pretext to regard Don Minutella as persona non grata.

Although the priest kept to his self-imposed silence, in the fall of 2017, Don Minutella was suddenly asked to make a pledge of allegiance to Pope Francis within 48 hours, otherwise he would be excommunicated. The priest responded with the Great Creed, whereupon he was "excommunicated" for disobedience.

His reaction was a call for "resistance" because his patience also came to an end. In an appeal he called on Pope Francis to defend the truths of faith and ecclesiastical order. In his catechesis and sermons, he continues to speak plain language, but denies the legitimacy of Pope Francis. By doing so, he makes it hard for believers who are seeking guidance to follow him, and offers his opponents plenty of room to attack him.

Don Minutella's pilgrimage to Ars

Recently, Don Minutella undertook a pilgrimage through France with numerous pilgrims. So last week they also reached Ars for the workplace and grave of St. John Maria Vianney. But there they received a surprise that no one had expected. In front of the sanctuary, excited and regrettable scenes played out with mutual accusations and reproaches.

The dispute moved under this banner promoting the "false prophet" Enzo Bianchi, who is to explain the Magisterium of Pope Francis

The church rector already awaited Don Minutella in the forecourt and forbade the priest to celebrate Mass. After a partly noisy back and forth, the group was granted access to the basilica on the condition that they remain "silent". During the time allowed, the group was overseen by two priests.

A video captured the unusual scene.

The church rector of Ars approached the group and said that they had received "information" from the archdiocese of Palermo that "you are a sect". Don Minutella had, as is usual, registered his pilgrimage in advance in Ars.

The fact is that a priest, who does not contradict the doctrine of faith at all, was hindered in the celebration of Mass and to whom access was granted only with difficulty.

In fact, Don Minutella - and even those who are close to him - argue about the wisdom of this move - Jorge Mario Bergoglio no longer considers himself the rightful pope. That is indeed serious. However, he does not question the papacy. He also denies being a sedevacantist..

The "false prophet" is welcome

At the same time as Don Minutella was almost denied access to the celebration of Mass in Ars, a banner bearing the name of the "false prophet" Enzo Bianchi  as Msgr. Antonio Livi, former dean of the Philosophical Faculty of the Lateran University, describes him. Enzo Bianchi is to explain in Ars "the Magisterium of Pope Francis".

How does it fit together?

The dubious figure of a self-styled "monk" and "prior," who is neither monk nor prior nor priest, who doubts, reinterprets, or denies so much that the list would be too long to enumerate. But it must be mentioned that he doubts the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

So what counts in the Church? Fidelity to the truth of the faith and the popes since the apostle Peter or the fidelity to the person of the current Pope? Of course, the two aspects have to form a unity. A contrast was constructed in the concrete case of those who invite the laity to entertain Enzo Bianchi as a speaker at Ars, but not to let the priest Don Minutella enter the sanctuary.

It becomes more understandable when you know that the church rector maintains personal contact with Enzo Bianchi and visited him in the "monastery" Boso.

Pope loyalty

The meeting in Ars took curious shape, as the church rector showed a prepared poster on which Don Minutella was asked to recognize the incumbent Pope. When Don Minutella asked what it was like to have the catholicity of Enzo Bianchi, the rector of the church did not answer, but shouted for it all the louder: "Long live the Pope! Long live the Pope! "

Don Minutella told the church rector that he had no problem with that. He stood faithfully and firmly with the papacy. What he does not believe in is Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his teaching. Don Minutella represents the position that Benedict XVI. Is still the legitimate Pope.

However, rejecting fellowship with Francis and celebrating instead in Communion with Pope Benedict, who sees himself in communion with Pope Francis, can not really convince.

At this point, the subtlety and fragility of the position of Don Minutella becomes clear, for Francis is the legitimately elected pope. Benedict XVI. has never admitted he does not recognize him as his legitimate successor.

More complex is the question of the "heretical pope" as the Correctio filialis in autumn 2017 showed. Don Minutella deduces from this that the legitimacy of the incumbent Pope is ipso facto expired because of the spread of heresies. But who can prove that the election of Pope Francis is directed by the "Mafia of St. Gallen" and thus invalidated? Who has the authority to declare that Pope Francis disseminates, promotes and does not suppress heretical ideas in order to explain the loss of his office?

There is a drama in these questions, which is apparently felt by many faithful, but also by priests. Also Don Minutella is one of them. However, the consequence he draws does not make it easier for believers, but complicates the situation, as reactions to his activities in recent months have shown.

Confusion and disorientation

But what does the incident of Ars show?

Especially, and painfully, that there is a great deal of confusion. Everyone is allowed to enter the basilica, no matter what they think or say about the truths of faith except whoever denies that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the rightful pope.

Even Cardinal Müller, the prefect of faith in Rome until June 2017, described the current situation of the Church as extremely grave at the end of June because believers who want to remain faithful to Catholic doctrine and creed are branded as "conservatives" and driven out of the Church.

Under such conditions, it is not easy for those who wish to remain faithful to find the right measure. Some deny the lawfulness of the reigning pope, others take refuge in miracles and private revelations. A few days ago, the intellectual, Roberto de Mattei, warned of this phenomenon. But he also named a cause: If believers no longer receive the necessary answers and guidance from those who should give them, ie the bishops and the priests, then they seek answers elsewhere.

Don Minutella himself speaks of "grotesque moments" first in Nevers, then also in Ars. On his webpage he operated for the radio show Domina Nostra, there were some photos. They show how a lay sister (without a habit) supervised Don Minutella in prayer.

The speech is often about the "signs of the times". But how are the signs of the times that a pontificate provokes obvious confusion, disorientation and strife?

Malachi Martin died in 1999 and was a former Jesuit who read the Third Secret. His best book was "The Jesuits" which prophesied a future Jesuit pope who would bring on the reform. "Hostage to the Devil" documents some pretty deep accusations and incidents of satanic ritual sex abuse. He wrote that traditional Catholics "would be hunted like doves".

The Bergoglians have taken over our churches, they welcome gays, Muslims, heretics, atheists, pagans and apostates all who rebel against God except Catholics. The ´tolerant bergoglian church´ persecute us because they hates Christ and His faithful true Catholic Church.

In this article, the author brings up the recognition that a heretical pope is a possibility, and in that case either ceases to be pope or must be deposed. But then, through a series of rhetorical questions about who could possibly identify such a situation or do anything about it (meaning nobody), the author goes on to effectively deny that a pope could be a heretic in the first place. None of it makes any sense! The fact that Benedict seems to recognize Bergoglio as his successor doesn't make Bergoglio the pope; only canon law correctly followed could do that. The bizarre treatment being meted out to this principled priest is enough to make you wonder if Bergoglio actually is illegitimate, whether or not you were wondering in the first place.

Actually, the author says that a pope can be a heretic but that pious people with opinions on the matter don’t get to decide. He also doesn’t say how a pope like that would be deposed, but it has happened before that a
Pope, most recently Celestine V, has resigned.

John F. Kennedy said...

Is he not called Pope Benedict XVI? No one has denied this, even he hasn't. There is only one Pope of the Latin Rite Catholic Church not two. As long as he is "Pope Benedict XVI" then he is Pope, no other. There is a reason Bergoglio always brings "his" new Cardinals to Pope Benedict XVI for review. He needs Pope Benedict XVI's confirmation of his choice otherwise they wouldn't be Cardinals.

I think that is the same "nun" in Nevers who I witnessed take a Host with her own hands from the ciborium and dip it in the Precious Blood at Mass in St. Gildard convent when I was there recently. I guess she can flout canon law and all liturgical norms, but real Catholics can't even pray without being under surveillance. Disgusting.
If any readers live in that diocese or in France they should consider reporting this.

What a debacle. Absolute disgrace they way those Pilgrims were treated. That Priest ought to be ashamed of himself.

"I must remind with strength to the eminent Cardinals, to their excellencies and to all the brother priests who are well aware that we are going through a time of confusion, of loss, and of test inside the Church! If we remain silent, we will take an immense number of souls into Hell! And even for us there will be eternal damnation! We must ask for clarity for the good of the souls! For the good of the sheep given onto us."

Don Minutella is a true priest, the others who disallowed him into the Church are not.
I think, however, that the radical liberals are starting to fall. I copied this below from the AP this AM:
"Pope Francis on Friday accepted the resignation of a Honduran bishop accused of sexual misconduct with seminarians, the latest in a series of high-ranking clergy implicated in sexual improprieties with adults under their authority.

Francis had ordered an investigation into the allegations against Tegulcigalpa Auxiliary Bishop Juan José Pineda Fasquelle last year. On Friday, the Vatican said Francis had accepted Pineda's resignation.

No explanation was given. At 57, Pineda is well below the normal retirement age of 75 for bishops.

Pineda was the top deputy to Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, one of Francis' main cardinal advisers, and his downfall is a blow to the Honduran archbishop"

This is the guy who was the chief assistant to the heretic (and dying), radical Cardinal Mariadiaga, SDB, the Archbishop of this city in Honduras, and the president of Bergoglio's C9 Cabinet which he appointed to initiate reform. Just like Trump, nearly all of Pope Francis men are tainted by scandal, either by sexual abuse scandals/homosexuality involving them or their assiciates, or financial scandals. Mariadiaga is faced with both. He should be thrown out.
And eventually (hopefully not too long)....Francis too.

Father Alessandro Minutella
Father Alessandro Minutella former Parish Priest in Palermo, Italy has accused Pope Francis and the Archbishop of Palermo of being in heresy.He repeated specific charges. There was no denial from the Vatican or the Archbishop.
He concluded that Pope Francis is not the real pope and Pope Benedict is still pope for him.
But for me Pope Francis is repeating the theology and doctrines of Pope Benedict who would also be in heresy and schism.Pope Benedict is indirect and subtle but is saying the same thing.
Both interpret the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS) with the irrational premise( visible cases of the baptism of desire are objective examples of salvation outside the Church) and so there is schism on EENS with the past popes. This is also heresy.
But this is also the interpretation of Fr. Alessandro Minutella who has had his theological formation at the Gregorian Pontifical University, Rome.
So we have two popes, the Archbishop of Palermo and Fr.Minutella with the following position.
1.They reject the dogma EENS as it was known for example to the Magisterium and missionaries in the 16th century.They do this by assuming invisible non Catholics -saved are visible examples of salvation outside the Church and exceptions to EENS.
2.They reject Vatican Council II interpreted without the false premise and instead interpret Vatican Council II with the irrational premise to create a rupture with Tradition( EENS, Syllabus of Errors on ecumenism etc).
3.They interpret BOD, BOB and I.I in all the Catechisms, with the same irrationality, to create a rupture with Feeneyite EENS and Tradition in general.
4.They have changed the meaning of the Nicene Creed.So there is a new understanding during the Profession of Faith, Oath Against Modernism and Oath of Fidelity.
Since the two popes assume there is salvation outside the Church they consider 'a speculative possibility' as 'a real person in real life'. Fr. Alessandro Minutella makes the same error.So for the two popes Martin Luther could be an Anonymous Christian saved outside the Church as a possibility.Fr. Minutella rejects this and supports the dogma EENS here.
The Letter of the Holy Office 1949 relative to Fr. Leonard Feeney made an objective mistake and all camps are using that false premise.
It reminds me though of Fr. Leonard Feeney of Boston. He was not saying anything new. There are no visible cases of the BOD, BOB and I.I for them to be relevant or exceptions to the dogma EENS. So he was correct. The Holy Office and the Archbishop of Boston were in heresy. They excommunicated him.
Similarly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre was correct. Vatican Council II with LG 8, LG 16 etc interpreted as referring to known people saved outside the Church, was a rupture with the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Church.It is heresy and schism.Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Ratzinger did not affirm Vatican Council II without the premise.They excommunicated him.
Now Don Minutella is told outside the church in Ars,France that he is excommunicated and cannot offer Mass there.But the Rector, who makes this announcement in public, also rejects the basic de fide teachings of the Church, mentioned above, which was the Catholic faith of the Cure de Ars, St. John Marie Vianney.-Lionel Andrades

We must remember that in the Church controlled by the anti-Catholic Vatican II Modernists, being a Catholic is no longer mandatory to be in the Church, being Catholic is now optional.
