Another Traditional Society Being Wrecked by Bergoglian Commissar

Traditional Society of Familia Christi by the papal commissioner in fact dissolved.

(Rome) The Commissar appointed by Pope Francis has de facto dissolved a traditional
fraternity. Not one reason for the drastic measure was mentioned. The Priestly Societt of Familia Christi is the first genuinely Italian Ecclesia Dei community. This is the name given to the traditional communities that are committed to the traditional form of the Roman rite and are therefore subordinate to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, today a division of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. It also appears to be the cause of the profound aversion to the Society which progressive Italian Churches hold against them and the Archbishop, who recognized them as ecclesiastical.

 The Priestly Fraternity Familia Christi (FSFC) is ecclesiastically a clerical society of Apostolic life of diocesan right. Its founder, at that time still as a lay association, is the Vatican diplomat Msgr. Giuseppe Canovai, who died in 1942 at the age of only 37 years. Before joining the diplomatic service of the Holy See, Canovai was a student pastor in Italy. In this capacity, he founded the lay association Familia Christi, which was recognized in 1938 under canon law. His spiritual diary, which he kept from the age of 15, is considered a special treasure and aid for personal sanctification. His beatification process is under way. After a long journey, priestly vocations grew out of the lay association, eventually leading to the founding of the fraternity. In 2014, after a long examination, it was first recognized by the then Archbishop of Ferrara-Comacchio, Msgr. Luigi Negri, and canonised on 8th September 2016, the Feast of the Nativity, with the benevolence of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei according to diocesan law.

Archbishop Negri, who was praised by Pope Benedict XVI., among the diocesan bishops of Italy. He was attacked accordingly. After the election of Pope Francis, his opponents tried to get rid of him as soon as possible. At the same time, people did not shy away from public discrediting. Although Msgr. Negri remained in office until the age of 75, it was not one day longer. In his book he spoke in connection with these hostilities,  of a "climate of retribution". The change at the Church hierarchy at the  top made it possible.

With his retirement, though in good health, the problems for the Fraternity of Familia Christi began. The appointment of the successor meant a provocative break with Negri's line. The new archbishop was Msgr. Giancarlo Perego, a "street priest" who "works on the margins" in February 2017, as he was officially described. A "super-progressive migration advocate", as the Vaticanist Marco Tosatti put it.

The same was repeated in Ferrara, which had previously happened in the archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels.  There, too, Pope Francis retired Archbishop André Joseph Leonard, hated in progressive church circles, as soon as he was 75 years old. Previously, he had already denied him the cardinalatial dignity, which is traditionally associated with the most important diocese of Belgium. No sooner had Leonard's successor, the progressive Jozef De Kesel been installed than he began to dismantle Leonard's acknowledged, New Rite, but "too conservative" brotherhood of the holy apostles.

The numerous priestly vocations of the Society did not speak well for them, but were a thorn in the side of the progressive church circles with their empty seminaries. Finally, the Priestly Fraternity, whose priests were very popular in the parishes entrusted to them in and around Brussels, was banished from Belgium by De Kesel, whom Francis, unlike Leonard, was immediately called to be a  Cardinal, and dissolved by Pope Francis.

Christmas Mass 2017, the Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity, blesses Santa Maria in Vado.

Like De Kesel, Msgr. Perego immediately showed an open aversion to the traditional fraternity of Familia Christi. He deprived the priests of the parish church of Santa Maria in Vado, an ancient basilica in the center of Ferrara, where in 1171 a Eucharistic miracle took place, which had been
entrusted to them  by Archbishop Negri. The expulsion took place under the pretext of a "structural reform" through parish mergers to pastoral units. On October 1, 2016, Archbishop Negri, in the presence of the mayor of Ferrara and other officials, had canonically appointed the Superior General of the Society in the traditional rite as Pastor of Santa Maria in Vado and other Friar Ministers as chaplains.

Further unfriendliness by Archbishop Perego followed. He banished the Brothers to a secluded church and denied them the public celebration of Holy Mass in the traditional rite of the churches entrusted to them. At the same time he set up a "people's altar" in a central chapel of the Ferrara Cathedral, where Archbishop Negri celebrated Mass in the traditional rite.

On December 1, 2018, the Prefect of the Roman Congregation of the Faith, Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer SJ, appointed the Auxiliary Bishop of Rome, Archbishop Daniele Libanori SJ, as "the Commissioner Plenipotentiary sent by the Holy See". Father Libanori, co-brother of the Pope in the Order of the Jesuits, was appointed as auxiliary bishop by Francis in November 2017.

The Commissar, with all authority, took over the leadership of the Society with the task of clarifying whether "the elements and conclusions" that had emerged in the course of a canonical visitation were well founded, and "if necessary to establish future paths for the fraternity".

What "elements and conclusions" were found, is still unknown.

Marco Tosatti wrote:

"And again the question arises: what such a serious thing can these priests have done to attract the canonical attention of a church, such as the Franciscans of the Immaculate, the Gospel of the Gospels, or the Sisters of Laval, to any kind of doctrinal and theologically approves and favors bizarre and affirms prelates without hesitating in important and delicate offices, which speak out for the gay marriage and the women's priesthood. "

Archbishop Perego had had a canonical visitation of the Brotherhood in 2018 and sent his report to Rome on September 30. The wish he expressed in it was promptly fulfilled by the Holy See: Rome sent a Commisar.

Tossati in December 2018:

"And then one wants to make us believe that this pontificate is merciful, rich in dialogue and tolerant of the various sensitivities and by no means biased and hostile to certain ecclesial realities," Tosatti said in December 2018.

Commissar  Daniele Libanori SJ

On 30 June, the Commissar issued a decree unbinding all priests, novices and subjects of all promises and commitments. In a nutshell, he dissolved the Society  and sent home all those who are not yet ordained priests. Although the Society of Familia Christi was not dissolved by formal law, all its activities are prohibited. It may no longer accept, arouse, or look after any vocations. The Society members, who are already ordained priests, "remain in a kind of limbo," according to the traditional side Messa in Latino.

This is the new world order of Bergoglio and "Amoris Laetitia" where fornication, adultery, and sodomy are acceptable. Anyone or any religious organization which disagrees is "cut off at the knees".

Anonymous said...

These groups should"
a) ignore the "Commissar" and Bergoglio by remaining faithful to the true Catholic Faith and b)professing their belief in or willingness to be under the jurisdiction of, the SSPX.

The H with Pope Bergoglio and his Church. So many people are leaving it, that it won't be long before he's the pope of nothing.

There are other traditional societies within Italy.
The ones who are not ordained should contact the IBMC.

Michael Dowd said...

Why couldn't this traditional society just ignore Pope Francis direction? What real power does Bergoglio have in this case? Money? Death threats?

You all should see the report, largely suppressed in the media, (how I happened to find it was just luck), about asshole Pope Francis tweeting about migrants, and how we should love them and protect them etc., etc.
He was bombarded with hate e-mails, threats, etc. (This week).
There is a huge uproar of negative reaction to his planned Mass in St. Peter's Basilica with and for migrants (most of whom are not even Christian).

Why don't the equally a.h. Cardinals in Rome and elsewhere wise up and collectively demand that Francis resign? The Catholic Church has been taken over by Satan and his people. And the "good" people just sit by and shake their heads sadly.

Burke, Schneider, etc. are losers for not instigating an outright rebellion against Francis. The only brave man who actually deserves to be a Cardinal (maybe will be when Bergoglio is gone) is Vigano. God bless him.

Burke likes to dress up in his pretty red dress....but where is he to initiate things against Francis?

@PW Do trolls ever stop trolling?

BrotherBeowulf said...

@gm: Nope, PW like Francis has gotta do what he's gotta do--th'Antipope's gonna plow salt in Holy God's good earth:

In complete accord with the Bergoglian mission to destroy the Church.

Or go down trying, for, at the end of the day due to the Immaculate Heart, it is indeed plowing the sea:

Heretics all wherever you be / In Tarbes or Nimes or over the sea / You never shall have kind words from me. / Caritas non disturbat me!

They should simply join the SSPX

JBQ said...

The issue is "with the Bergoglian mission to destroy the Church". This guy is extremely intelligent and as crafty as the devil. There is a Father William Jenkins with a blog called "What Catholics Believe". I believe that he is SSPX and associated with Immaculate Conception Abbey in the East somewhere.---He stated that the current occupant is relishing the turmoil and using it to move toward his set aim of destroying the Church. He is especially gleeful at the sex abuse scandal which is destroying the priesthood of Melchizedek. He wants a priesthood of the laity and a Communist view of society which is based on small communities without a hierarchy.----It is called collaborative leadership. Before any major decision a committee of leaders meet to discuss and receive input. The final decision promulgated is then a joint venture.---Obviously, this is strange coming from a dictator pope. It didn't work with the Chicago Cubs who had rule by committee and alternating managers. When you go into combat, you have to make instant decisions. The Church is in mortal combat with the devil and Francis just keeps whistling Dixie.

"The Church is in mortal combat with the devil and Francis just keeps whistling Dixie."

Francis and his people are of the devil. Don't expect him or them to one day stand up for the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Faith.
Anyone who prays for Francis' "conversion" is in violation of valid judgement. They are either hopelessly naïve or neocon Catholics still willing to believe in "the Holy Father".
The only legit "Holy Father" is Benedict XVI who either willingly or was coerced to resign. That's it. Only him. And unfortunately he is a coward.
Vigano is the only brave man to speak up. I wish he would reveal everything in one huge explosion of scandal that will break like a tornado over Rome and the Vatican and sweep Francis and his people away. It's not impossible....although it's very late.
Pray for Vigano to reveal everything, documents, names, events. It will be 1000X worse the the McCarrick affair last year.

Here's the link to the article I mentioned a few posts up about the outrage of the Italian against Pope francis after hiw asinine tweets in favor of the "migrants"

They hate him even more than I thought. GREAT. Good riddance! Totally justified. I wouldn't be surprised if they start throwning rotten fruit and garbage at him.

Righteous Anger amongst Catholics concerning the Novus Ordo was inevitable.
Next year will be interesting as the facade of 1965 is wearing thin.

Reagan's Bush said...

The Catholic Church has not been taken over by Satan. That is blasphemy. The Church - what's left of it - is fine. It is the Novus Ordo sect that is demonic. The Church and Papacy cannot defect. So, that leaves us with one option.

BMW said...

Yes, Reagan Bush should go.

Is there a list of communities destroyed under this pope?

Tancred said...

Not yet.

MikeyG48 said...

This is very sad - I would assume that the members of this Fraternity can be placed within either the FSSP or ICKSP or any of the other TLM Groups in Europe - there are at least 7 more. I pray and wish only the best for these Traditional Catholic Priest.

OP said...

Please God that they join the SSPX so they dont have to experience this diabolical sabotage again.
