An injustice was done to Fr.Settimo Mannelli F.I

Today morning it has been raining here and the weather and view was beautiful in front of the church Santa Maria di Nazareth , Boccea, Rome.Too bad the land developers are building apartments and by  next year the peaceful and solitary view  will not be there.

An injustice was done to Fr.Settimo Manelli F.I, the young Rector at the Franciscans of the Immaculate seminary, who was not teaching heresy, yet Pope Francis closed down the seminary."There was no heresy being taught at the seminary ",says Corrado Gnerre, noted apologist and a professor at a pontifical seminary in Rome.

 There was no heresy being taught by Fr.Settimo but Pope Francis wanted the seminarians to go to the other seminaries in Rome.
Fr.Settimo Manelli and his brother Fr.Giovani Manelli F.I would offer the Traditional Latin Mass and Novus Ordo Mass.They are good priests.
Canonically there was no reason to remove the Rector and close down the seminary.
Fr.Settimo was also the Parish Priest of the church Santa Maria di Nazareth, Boccea, which has become polarised with 'two groups' of Friars.
A few months back a visiting F.I priest ended his homily saying the real enemies of the Church are those who want to go back to the past.( Goodbye St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine!).
The seminary building lies mostly vacant.There are a few lay men staying there.One of whom is allegedly a Mason according the blog The Eponymous Flower. He's still there.
The lay men and few seminarians at Boccea will have to vacate soon it is learnt, as the Lay Association, faithful to Fr.Stefano Manelli F.I, the founder of the community, take over the building.
A new church had to be built by the diocese at Santa Maria di Nazareth as the old church building is owned by the Association coordinated by the Manelli family.
The seminarians under the Commissar Fr.Sabino Ardito SDB do not have a seminary building to house them all and their new formaters.Meanwhile the old seminary building in the parish will be vacant soon and they cannot use it.
The Commissar I am told is wanting to reconcile the community. Hopefully he will succeed where Fr.Volpi failed.
Fr.Settimo Manelli and the Franciscan of the Immaculate priests who want to offer only the Traditional Latin Mass are not disobedient and rebelling against the pope as it is made out to seem by some.They are really opposed to interpreting Vatican Council II with a nonsense premise. The nonsense premise is : there are persons in Heaven visible and known on earth saved allegedly without the baptism of water in the Catholic Church,and these persons are exceptions to all needing to enter the Catholic Church for salvation in 2015, on earth.So Vatican Council II, because of these visible-dead cases it is inferred, is a break with the past.
This is contrary to common sense and common knowledge.Yet this reasoning has to be used by the Franciscans of the Immaculate ( and the SSPX) to be accepted by the magisterium, which is politically Left.
The priests who want to offer the old Mass with the old ecclesiology and without this irrational new ecclesiology of course are correct.They should continue to reject this dead man walking and visible theory in the interpretation of Vatican Council II which is being supported by popes Benedict and Francis.Instead they should offer to accept Vatican Council II in agreement with the traditional interpretation of extra ecclesiam nulla salus. It would mean LG 16, LG 8 etc refer to invisible cases on earth and not visible in the flesh people.So they are not exceptions to the dogma on exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church.
The Commissar could make the first doctrinal move and announce that Vatican Council II can be accepted in agreement with the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus ( Cantate Dominio, Council of Florence 1441) and the Syllabus of Errors.
Otherwise it would be expecting Fr.Settimo Manelli to accept heresy.
Fr.Settimo could ask the Commissar to affirm Vatican Council II with LG 16, LG 8, UR 3, NA 2 etc as being implicit and not explicit, invisible and not visible.Let the Commissar confirm that Vatican Council II has not changed the old ecclesiology of extra ecclesiam nulla salus ;the ecclesiology of the Church is still exclusivist and the contemporary magisterium has made a mistake, when it breaks with the magisterium of the past.
