Another good priest decommissioned....
I have seen this situation many times during my journey since 1991 but this is the first time that we see it fully documented, with a global exposure and with the correct reaction by the Parish Council.
Bishop takes away pastoral duties from priest who upholds authentic Church teaching on marriage (1)
PALERMO, Italy, July 5, 2017 – A Catholic priest in Sicily was removed from his parish and had his faculties suspended because he defended the sanctity of marriage, his parishioners say.
Palermo Archbishop Corrado Lorefice has forbidden Don Alessandro Maria Minutella of St. John Bosco Parish to celebrate Mass, administer the sacraments, or preach, Italian journalist Marco Tosatti reported.
According to some parishioners, one of the official reasons for the measures was Don Minutella’s not knuckling down to the teaching of this current pontificate. The problem, they believe, is dueling interpretations of Amoris Laetitia.... Instead, he reaffirmed the teachings of John Paul II, saying there being a lack of clarity on the part of Francis to the questions asked by the four cardinals, and has stuck to the age-old denial of communion to those in adulterous relationships.
Parishioners told Tosatti that there are other controversial priests in Palermo "only these in the sense of being hyper-progressive and gay friendly" and the rest of Italy, but they are "spared thanks to the compliance" of Church hierarchy. But for the pastor of St. John Bosco, "suspensions and anathemas struck like lightning".
Mary, through La Salette, Comments (2):
In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls.
In all places there will be extraordinary wonders, because the true faith has died and a false light shines on the world. Woe to the princes of the Church whose only occupation will be to heap wealth upon more wealth, and to preserve their authority and proud domination!
Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.
....men will become more and more perverted. God will take care of his faithful servants and men of good will. The Gospel will be preached everywhere, and all peoples of all nations will get to know the truth.
"I make an urgent appeal to the earth. I call on the true disciples of the living God who reigns in Heaven; I call on the true followers of Christ made man, the only true Savior of men; I call on My children, the true faithful, those who have given themselves to Me so that I may lead them to My Divine Son, those whom I carry in My arms, so to speak, those who have lived according to My spirit.
Finally, I call on the Apostles of the Last Days, the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who have lived in scorn for the world and for themselves, in poverty and in humility, in scorn and in silence, in prayer and in mortification, in chastity and in union with God, in suffering and unknown to the world. It is time they came out and filled the world with light. Go and reveal yourselves to be my cherished children. I am at your side and within you, provided that your faith is the light which shines upon you in these unhappy days. May your zeal make you hunger for the glory and the honor of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you, the few who can see. For now is the time of all times, the end of all ends.
miguel de Portugal Comments: To those who pervert the fundamentals of Christian Faith we say, in the Name of God:
Go behind me, Satan, thou art a scandal unto me: because thou savourest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men. [Matthew 16:23]
...and will be treated as such - regardless of their official title and position within the Christian faith they claim to profess.
Now, quoting Peter's words, we resolutely state in the Name of God, that:
We ought to obey God, rather than men. [Acts Of Apostles 5:29]
....and that is exactly what we have been doing under the direction of God.
Those who may come across our pages and do not like our position are invited to leave our pages at once. They are not welcome here lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. [Mark 4:12]!
