Franciscan Friar of the Immaculate Defends Vatican II

There has been much talk of late regarding the way the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate have been treated by Rome.  Whereas I agree that Rome is not fond of Tradition and that there is truth that this lack of fondness has displayed itself strong against the Franciscan Friars, we must keep in mind that the Franciscan Friars are not exactly integral defenders of Tradition.  As a matter of fact, they view the Second Vatican Council as being in continuity with Tradition.  This is not to say that the Franciscan Friars are getting what they deserve, but they are simply an element of that revolution instigated by the Council and therefore cannot be trusted doctrinally, even though many of their members display solid Catholic piety.


Below is a video published in January 2011 in which Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner begins a short series in defence of the Council.  Let us recall also that these same Franciscan Friars were promoted by La Porte Latine (official website of the SSPX District in France) for a short period of time back in late 2010 – an early sign of the demise of the Society of St. Pius X.

  1. Absolutely. So many people forget that they are firmly in league with Modernist Rome and I for one say let them face the harsh reality and let them be a sign for all those who seek to make any sort of agreement. many believe that they will call down abundant graces upon the Church and their faux traditionalism but I don’t believe it. They will only enrage an already offended God for being falsely obedient. He calls for warriors and He gets wimps. I have no doubt that because of the Neo-SSPX’s extended friendship with the FFI, their poisonous mindset has been adopted by our leaders.

    I often wonder if the Neo-SSPX would be quick to condemn a smart FFI religious for leaving his Order or publicly standing up to the powers that be? For them Obedience is the queen of all virtues, not Faith.
