The Friars of The Immaculate, The Extraordinary Rite and Pope Francis
I came late to the "news" that the Vatican or Pope Fancis or someone else is trying to stop the celebration of the Extraordinary Rite. Personally I am getting a bit fed up with some people making one negative comment after another about the Pope (and perhaps looking nervously for something to criticize). Here is a piece from an FI blog, saying just what we would expect from within an order or congregation. The idea that we must know everything about everything is dangerous and silly. The inability to accept that problems that are "in house" in a religious order are first of all their business before they are anyone else's and the surrender to suspicious thoughts suggests a certain spiritual instability that does not speak well for certain people and groups within the Church.
