After the systematic destruction of the once flourishing Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate, here is some good news about their beleaguered founder, Father Stefano Manelli:
You all will remember the plight of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (FFI). They have been under the heavy boot of the Congregation for Religious for a long time now.
In the horrid mix were also awful allegations that had been made against the founder of the FFIs, Fr. Stefano Manelli.
I just read a story which says that all the allegations and charges against him have been investigated by civil authorities and shelved by civil authorities. They dropped it. HERE
Now it remains to be seen whether or not the Congregation will in any way change its tune, or whether they will continue to make of the FFIs an example to take the heart out of traditionalists, Catholics driven mercilessly by libs to the peripheries.
