Skip to comments.[Catholic Caucus] The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Have Resurrected

A group of twelve former Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate have successfully escaped the Vatican crack-down. They re-appeared in a slightly modified habit in Italy, writes the newspaper Il Mattino (January 5).
The pious women are based in the shrine Santuario del Buon Consiglio of Frigento. Since December 28 they are working in a radio and publishing house which formerly were managed by the Sisters.
The Vatican forced them out of their religious vows but has no power against pious women who form a community in order to serve the Lord.
The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate have been headed for the last five years by a Vatican appointed liberal commissioner. Until this day the Vatican has not explained this harsh measure.
This story is too short, but at least gives off a tiny hint that some modicum of tiny relief may be in order for the Sisters, suffering under the heavy handed tactics of the marauding Gestapo, plotted in the Vatican.
