Missing friars

So, went to the March for Life in Rome, as you probably know.

Also went last year.

Bit of a difference. One thing that really stood out was the absence of these guys.



It's funny, cause there was a whole flotilla of them last year...


Do you think they were busy?


Scheduling conflict, maybe?

(Someone there who knows them well told me they were there but in civies. 'Cause that's what we've come to. #thefranciseffect)

Our Lady of Akita, pray for us.

Fr. Manelli wasn't allowed to visit his parent's graves. Whoever gave that order is so vicious that nothing else surprises me.

A good percentage of the friars are leaving the Institute because they can never be modernist Capuchins. In the meantime the Capuchin commissar collects his high salary every month.

The seminarians are mostly back with their families. Rome does not really want holy thriving Orders or holy young priests.

Do you have some evidence for this? It would be big news if true.
