Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Tragic Destruction of Religious Life continues

March 2nd, 2020, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Church Militant details the story of the Vatican’s abolishing a religious fraternity of traditionalist priests in Italy (summary excerpts shown below):


“The archdiocese of Ferrara-Comacchio announced that the Society of Apostolic Life Familia Christi (Family of Christ) has been suppressed by the Holy See following the conclusion of a canonical procedure that lasted for two years.” The decree was issued Dec. 13, 2019 and published Feb. 28, 2020.

“The priestly fraternity was assigned pastoral care of the parish of Santa Maria in Vado and the rectorate of the Basilica of the Prodigious Blood, the site of an extraordinary Eucharistic miracle which took place on March 28, 1171. When Fr. Pietro da Verona broke the host while celebrating Mass, a stream of blood gushed from it, so vigorous that it hit the vault above the altar. The traces of blood are visible to this day on the right side of the transept of the basilica.”

“Sources said that the suppression of Familia Christi was intended to stamp out the legacy of the previous archbishop, Luigi Negri, one of the last appointments of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.”

It was Negri, who had authorized and installed the Priestly Fraternity of the Familia Christi (FSFC) in the archdiocese of Ferrara-Comacchio….Negri publicly denounced Freemasonry, confronted the LGBT lobby, challenged Satanic sects in his archdiocese, … and condemned excessive solicitude for migrants when Italians in poverty were being neglected.”
