(quote) Jerry-74383 said: I'm curious - do you know someone inside the FFI who has provided an unbiased view of the entire situation, not only the one small part those outside the organization are ranting about?
Jerry- I don't have inside info but it looks very ugly to me from the outside
. My only direct experience with the FFI is via online sermons and articles etc which impress me greatly. When I read about the closing of seminaries, Masses being cancelled, senior FFI clergy being "removed" it looks like a hatchet job to me. Is it a Press beat up and the guys in Rome are actually sending roses to the FFI principals
? I don't know but it looks sad. I don't get why forcing the Novus Ordo Mass onto the priests is so vital to the Romans? Also, during a vocations crisis, why would you shut down a thriving Order? It looks similar to my archdiocese where it is preferable to have an empty church rather than bring in an able and willing priest from abroad (and I do have inside information about that).
