When you were ordained priest promised obedience to the Bishop and all his successors. This we should remember that we are called to obedience in faith, no obedience into sentimentality and emotion. Therefore, The true and faithful priest, obey not only the Bishop who he likes, that he He considered worthy the which estimates, but it obeys to the Bishop as such, as High Priest and member of the Apostolic College.

The Fathers de The island of Patmos They remained bitter about the case of the priest Palermo Alessandro Minutella [see WHO], so they decided to dedicate two different writings: John Cavalcoli, an indirect reflection but to him valuable due to the fact that all that is modern is not modernism; Ariel S. Levi Gualdo, more directly, also he considered it in the consciousness of having to recall the duties of his priestly vows.

At our online magazine The island of Patmos We received messages from readers asking onlookers about your preaching and catechesis in the video spread online network. I replied trying to "fix" the scandal shot towards which you were plummeting.

.

Then I was contacted from journalists covering of church and ecclesiastical affairs, including two of the foreign press, they asked me theological opinion and canon. At that point it was no longer possible to "tune the message", and in priestly consciousness, in theological science and in compliance with the laws of the Church, I had to respond fairly and accurately.

Your video plays here, It contains serious defects of substance and form. In it you from start to your speech reporting the cases of two of your brother priests of the ancient and noble Church panormitana that demean the dignity of the Sacred Order of Priests. Of these two names do not [see video-homily WHO], But while hinting that it is Fabrizio Fiorentino [see WHO] and Cosimo Scordato [see WHO]. Between the two the most harmful is certainly Cosimo Scordato, which he should not be allowed to teach sacramental theology at the Pontifical Theological Faculty of Palermo, for its obvious and documented unorthodox tendencies related to both the ecclesiology is the dogmatic sacramental.

Use two figures of questionable priests the pastoral and theological level, should you cause for pain, no reason to build the thesis that ... the other is worse, thus presenting yourself before the people of God as an innocent victim because of priestly virtues model. Indeed, your cassock - the same that I always wear every day -, Pastoral lose all meaning and sense of visible witness of your renunciation of the world, if it does not dwell in a soul able to recognize mystery of grace for the indelible mark of the priesthood even in a confrere who carelessly spread their pictures in a bathing suit on the computer network. Indeed, if your priestly cassock is also intimately experienced with Christian piety to visible defects of others, It will become a lot worse than the swimsuit flaunted by your brother in the photographs of him published in the electronic network. Is this, in deep consciousness, I tell you in my capacity as confessor to many Priests.

None of the Disciples Christ God has ever accused of having accepted into the College of the Apostles Judas Iscariot, who then betrayed him. Nor has anyone ever denied the authority of Peter reminding him of having denied Christ three times and that he had taken flight as many times. anything, the Blessed Apostle Paul, which also severely scolded in Antioch [cf. Maybe 2, 1-11], He never doubted the authority of Peter, knowing that the command to feed his flock [cf. GV 21, 1-19] and of strengthening his brethren in faith [cf. LC 22, 31-34], at that weak pescatore galileo, undignified and culturally limited, He was transferred to the mystery of grace by Christ, God himself [cf. Mt 16, 13-20].

.

That said I'll note as follows :

.

1. from videos of your homilies and catechesis, It reveals a flawed theological training and structured in the style of preachers of certain evangelical sects, up to slip into heterodoxy in an attempt to preserve the orthodoxy of the deposit of the Catholic faith ;

2. your calls to the theologian Hans Urs von Balthasars are bold and arbitrary and they can deduce that your knowledge of the work of this scholar of the twentieth century is approximate, quindi falsifying, because having read and studied does not mean to have understood, and especially highly complex arguments such as those of this Author, to sift them not just a smattering of neoscolastica decadente, It is required a solid education and metaphysical Aristotelian-Thomist ;

3. Your transcends forms of Mariology mariolatria, however, in a Latin-Mediterranean context in which the shepherds in the care of souls have the obligation and duty to correct certain deviant forms of popular piety linked to conventionally popular cults of the Blessed Virgin and the saints.

I stop to these brief theological aspects to invite you to reflect on the way you have gone scandal in the People of God, attacking your bishop during a liturgical action from inside the parish church entrusted to you, because through such rants have shown:

.

  1. to use other people's shortcomings, then the same reasons and the same aggressive emotion through which Martin Lutero attacked the Ecclesiastical Authority and the Rome already the German heretic called before you, "the great whore", term to which you have added to your: 'Multinational forgery' [cf. WHO] ;
  1. similarly to Luther, denouncing the immorality, the corruption and moral decadence of the church world - all that really exist and as such to be frowned upon, then as now -, you believe that the solution lies in your "ego" and break with ecclesial communion ;
  1. you have grossly disrespectful to the Pope implicitly accusing him of heresy, often also with delirious speeches, and you also missed badly of respect apostolic authority of your Bishop, claiming to act in the name of the "defense of truth" which in fact, however, represent only your personal idea of ​​truth, place the custody of the truth is not entrusted to you, much less to your subjectivity imbued with a sentimentality that denotes an emotion that you can not control and.

I think I can express so with authority and credibility because I have often criticized the private doctor Corrado Lorefice, of which I disagree with the theological approach geared to that of Bologna School I judge always pernicious, all within the freedom of the children of God and the legitimate theological dispute has always recognized and promoted by the Church, provided that done in wisdom and especially with charity [you can see in this regard my Lectio last year, WHO]. I have not even hesitated to show discomfort for the appointment of Italian Bishops belonging all the penalty to a specific school of thought and taken to the episcopate by those who claim the "plurality of ideas within the Church", but at the same time impose a de facto single thought, this thing that is called in other languages blow. That said I could continue a long time in painting the unique thought, deficiencies and above the mediocrity of the Bishops of last appointment, but never put in question their minimum apostolic authority, well it was the worst Bishops of Church history, to which we must obey, regardless of their intelligence and their human qualities, theological and moral; and that as long as they do not would end up falling into heresy. In this second case, to pass sentence on the heterodoxy of a Bishop, It can proceed only the Roman Pontiff through the relevant departments of the Apostolic. We have to report to the Authority of the Church any cases of heterodox bishops, But we can not condemn them, because our position is less sacramental, so we can not erigerci courts of those possessed of the supreme sacramental degree of fullness of the Apostolic Priesthood.

S. AND. Rev.ma Mons. Corrado Lorefice, Primate Archbishop of Palermo and Sicily

When he was ordained priest promised obedience to the Bishop and all his successors. This we should remember that we are called to obedience in faith, no obedience into sentimentality and emotion. Therefore, The true and faithful priest, obey not only the Bishop who he likes, that he He considered worthy the which estimates, but it obeys to the Bishop as such, as High Priest and member of the Apostolic College. And in his particular Church, the Bishop personifies Christ holding and unites all living members of the body which is the Church. Therefore, S. AND. Rev.ma Mons. Corrado Lorefice, Primate Archbishop of Palermo and Sicily, is the bishop to whom you have respect and filial obedience, because the Priesthood, to you as to us all, It was given in "free loan", not "possess". And you are called to exercise the sacred priesthood in communion with your bishop in the manner and form as he shall set. The validity of Masses you celebrate, do not depend on your “magical power“, but from the Eucharist celebrated by the High Priest of the Church of Palermo, who has given you permission to celebrate the Eucharistic Sacrifice, administer confessions and preaching. And as these faculties you gave them according to the canonical laws of the Church, these faculties can revocartele on reasonable grounds, yes it is true that we are all priests marked with an indelible and everlasting character, but it is equally true that the priesthood is not ours, It is not our possession, It is a service to which we are called; and how to serve the Church through the Priesthood, it establishes the Bishop of the particular Church in communion with the Bishop of Rome and Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, certainly you can not determine this by asking you before the faithful above the authority of the High Priest of the Church panormitana, because your action is wicked, reprehensible and outrageous before the People of God.

S. AND. Rev.ma Mons. Corrado Lorefice, the day he received the pallium from Pope metropolitan Francis I

In your public speech you have stated clearly and implicitly not to recognize the authority of your Bishop, which does not fail to make hoax. And of egocentrism filling state that can not be interested in anything any suspension from the exercise of the ministry and so on, so that you will continue your work in a way that best reputerai right and proper.

.

Know that before you, Martin Luther, He acted in the same way before the decree of the Supreme Pontiff, which he responded by calling the Successor of Peter: "ass", "Satan", "Lots of dung". And like you this heretic "set fire" to the papal decree, he physically, you with words.

S. AND. Rev.ma Mons. Corrado Lorefice, Archbishop of Palermo

I believe that the Archbishop of Palermo was patient and prudent, compassionate and merciful. Had I been your bishop - is obviously an example academic -, I would have been too patient, prudent, compassionate and merciful, but by that time I would have taken steps to revoke the right to celebrate Mass in public, administer confessions and to preach. And once she summoned and locked in a room with me, I made you repent of your sins, If that room you had not gone out after she kissed the hand with the knee flexed recognizing my apostolic authority, rinnovandomi obedience and declaring that would have acted in the manner indicated by me and controlled by virtue of the grace of state given to me, place the grace of your state does not exist and above all can not operate and produce fruit without the top grace of the bishop was.

.

Of different, between your bishop and me, But there's one thing: after I rebuked you'd also lost his license to teach theology to a dangerous brain poisoner as Cosimo Scordato and I would never want to Fabrizio Fiorentino to go around the world dressed as a trendy carefree bachelor to be selfie to be published on the electronic network. This is the substantial difference that exists between me and a poor person aequitas and a sense of proportion as Corrado Lorefice, that by the grace of God and the Holy See will is the rightful Pastor of the local Church in Palermo.

.

I suggest fraternally first publicly ask forgiveness to your Bishop, apologizing for having stuck with the faithful during the celebration of Holy Mass. After that would be appropriate for you to retire for a period of two years in a monastery, making you follow a good spiritual director for the care of your soul and an elderly theologian specialist who can heal the severe deformation of your theological thinking steeped in adulteration and serious errors.

If foresight, mature and humble not do this, the future that awaits you is likely to be that of the "shepherd" of a Christian sect dress outside by Catholic priest, surrounded by the aura of the beloved Holy Spirit and animated by a catastrophic vision that constitutes the very negation of our Holy Faith, certainly not the great message of hope contained in the Apocalypse of Blessed Apostolo Giovanni. a catastrophism, your, based on pessimism that is negation of our Holy Faith, which is based on the theological virtue of hope that no accident is placed in the middle between the other two theological virtues, right to join together with faith and charity.

.

Do not wait until no further ado to ask so docile and humble forgiveness of your Bishop, to which you are not required to pay tribute estimate, because you never gave it to him promise, as none of us has ever promised to estimate the proper Bishop, But obedience yes, him that you, because gliel'hai solemnly promise.

.

I bless you with priestly fraternity and I guarantee you my remembrance in prayer for your conversion and your renewed communion with the Bishop of the ancient and noble Church of Palermo.

About isoladipatmos

30 thoughts on "Alessandro Minutella is not a priestly piety model that Catholics should follow

  1. I'm with don Minutella humanly and I understand if his "suffering" has led to this outburst ... expression of a long-repressed distress.

    Unfortunately, we are slaves to sin, often the passion drag our actions, It leads us not to "honor your father and mother", to behave like Cam with Noah (Genesis 9,20-27).

    .. But if the bishop invites White to "teach and train" priests panormitani; if the present bishop listens to the undoubted outlandish claims of Bianchi and does not intervene to interpret, explain their meaning and correct, It can only mean that shares for word for word the meaning eterodossodi those claims; if the bishop rebukes and silences even the priest who dares to interrupt the speaker to converse, plead and refute ...

    If the bishop - even though vested with potestas – He rides his bike in the cathedral, if you accept the liturgical innovations of other presbyters, tolerates certain "blessings", endorse certain attires, certain attitudes, certain initiatives, obviously the bishop uses two weights and two measures, expresses a authority at the very least inconsistent, probably it lacks not only the sense of 'aequitas but also that the worth.

    As for the personal confrontation, would be non-private calls and clarifications in camera caritatis that every father turns to his disobedient son, after having heard the explanations.

    Each one of us, his Cross ...
    Lift up your hearts ... Don Alexander, courage, you're living a painful experience, you are not alone, many good people pray for you, do treasure also provided by the advice of Fathers'Patmos Island and act in accordance with what your conscience and your confessor will suggest.
    We have the Lord

  2. Father dear and esteemed brother priest,

    I introduce myself and sign more, In this case, however, remove my name, not for me, that Palermo could sign a public report without hesitation (I lived there for years), but for my brothers who work in that diocese, and why today, in Rome, I hold the office of vicar general of our congregation, and I would not want someone took my words as the official expression of the congregation [Ed. The priest who writes is a religious, former superior of a religious community in the Archdiocese of Palermo has two houses with adjoining parishes entrusted to them].

    I will just define the diocesan Palermo a dire situation, a disaster that began long ago, Long episcopate of Cardinal. Salvatore Pappalardo.

    The teaching in the theological faculty should be subject to full inspection by the Holy See, as priestly ordinations, because over time have come to the priesthood elements in good-natured way we can define … problematic.

    As a religious I must honestly admit that in Palermo, some of the worst examples of priestly life, We come from religious, and in the diocese we are more in number to the secular clergy.

    I discovered that even several top, lying with problematic elements, They passed them in their homes in Palermo, the same way that the bishop of Palermo, when he had to get rid of embarrassing priests, He sent them to Rome to study.

    Your appeal to don Minutella is wise, wise and compassionate, and, impartially, not omit to indicate a lack of sense of proportion, of aequitas

    Don Minuella missed, because a victim of its discomfort (understandable), and his grief (which can remove lucidity), But let me tell you … There are secular and religious priests priests, that for their conduct of life would have deserved much more, and, above all, much earlier, measures even stricter, but they will never get, because they are all aligned with the “power” and the “master”, They protect each other and protected each other all the other ones …

    Today, and then, these elements, much worse than don Minutella, They feel fully legitimized by the Summit, the head of the body …
    I hope you don Minutella listen to you and follow your advice.

  3. If don Alessandro Minutella had been close as a brother p. Ariel, this would not happen.
    I say this based on personal experience of those who have never regretted, at a difficult time, I followed a specific board of p. Ariel, for which years later I am forever grateful. In fact I wanted “split the world”, however I would just head split, but at the time I could not understand.

  4. I think don Minutella is facing a crossroads:
    – submit to his Bishop, It was also rival of certain Renaissance Popes,
    – out of the ecclesiastical communion.
    I would invite you to trust and imitate those who lived on his skin situations similar to his: S. Pio of Pietrelcina.

  5. Reverend Brothers who have posted some interesting comments, of me to think I can answer as a specialist in theology of Southern Italy, because I am a meridionologo, branch of the very selective and specialized theology, reserved for the few.
    As I read the letter-article father Ariel … let's, It is a shepherd of souls (now with the caresses now with the stick), I thought my Napoli and Palermo in question, They are two former capital of what once was the Bourbon kingdom.
    As a specialist in theology of Southern Italy, I can make this my high exegesis: My Bishop, one in Naples, when you put it has no sense of the ridiculous, while in Palermo, without even mettercisi, does not however the sense of tragedy.
    Here … I kiss your hands and I toast to my bishop, who has no sense of the ridiculous, up to be amiable and likeable, but mostly ready to understand all the pitfalls of all priests, never have condemned the “flaws right” and flew on “flaws left”, because the failings of the clergy are all the same, both when it comes to forgive when there is to be condemned, with that spirit that Father Ariel, who wants to understand, called “aequitas” and “sense of proportion” …
    But how many, today, They are able to understand?

  6. Caro don Ariel S. Levi Gualdo,

    personally the above article I consider it bad: it is so full of erudition as devoid of humanity…
    As regards its assertion “Mariology [Don Minutella] It transcends into forms of Mariolatry, moreover, in a Latin-Mediterranean context…” Well, I expect – according to the prophecy of that great theologian who is St. Louis de Monfort – even the “Century of Mary” (think a bit '!)… If, then we – stubbornly and proudly “mariani” the Little Flock – we have a theology “Latin Mediterranean”, then it means that she has rather a theology “Nordic-episcopal”, that is, just that bad theology of the episcopal conferences of the Northern Europe (almost completely protestantizzate) who they were responsible for introducing the Holy Catholic Church various catechisms Netherlands… the use of the received communion on his hands… the ineffable thesis of the supreme theologian K. Rahner, and so on…

    I beg you, not bothered over this great Priest of God (Don Alessandro Minutella), for he is a novel s. John the Baptist, in recent times:”You are not allowed to keep ... your brother's wife!”
    With regard to the core of his article "obedience", it is true that the Saints have always obeyed (but never against the Doctrine, against Moral, against Charity [in these three cases would obey a grave sin, think a bit '!]), but it is the peculiarity of the times in which we live to require different actions and divinely inspired ... It repass to read St. Athanasius life (for instance), Doctor of the Church, It was certainly not to obey the bishops and councils of that time (almost all Aryans ...) or other similar circumstances (and dramatic) in Church History ... well today, what it is happening inside the Church, by mercenaries and wolves, who do not care of the "sheep" (while don Minutella his sheep are considered valuable), far exceeds those past events, nevertheless tragic and terrible, Today the apostasy comes from within the Church (strange that she was not noticing it!), and it comes from its vertices, as claimed by mystics, saints and Apparitions recent Mariane.
    I suggest you get to the Immaculate service and is not afraid to ...

    1. In an article, then that is a public letter, in which you first talk in terms of what is sacramental ministerial priesthood and what obligations sometimes painful connected to it and what it is not by his own institution a sentimental issue to be living in a subjective-emotional way, arrives in response a comment that totally ignoring the depth of these contents, part on a tangent, offering a reading whole subjective-emotional-sentimetalistico.

      P.S.

      By tomorrow we will post the video-conference held on 31 March by Father Ariel in which he speaks, throughout the initial part, the emotion he wants to prevail over reason and the scientific data.
      Please listen, lasts only 20 minutes.

    2. Those who read this magazine consistently knows that the trend “Nordic” Here it is continually challenged with sound arguments. The misunderstanding is probably about the middle: Don Minutella urges sentimentaliste ropes, that do not accord with the rationality of the tones of Don Ariel and Father Cavalcoli. I also understand the emotional reactions of the faithful, faced with various obscenities. But if sentimentality was cleverly used by the modernists to take us into chaos, It will not work in reverse to get out farcene: Instead it takes a well-founded the order line and the good theology. We are walking on a narrow ridge and Luther is at the bottom of ravines both left and right.

  7. On Don Minutella I'm still getting an idea (Also I hate to follow long video / audio interventions and therefore did not follow the last sermon). I see good faith and energy, but misguided, because some problems are evident. The points raised by Don Ariel seem to me hardly disputable. I think we face a bit’ of confusion between the “resistance” the A “disobedience”. The first provides for the refusal to teach false things, or to put into practice the wrong acts, no direct confrontation and tried against the higher authority (think p.es. at St. Tommaso Moro).

    I also understand that many of the faithful, more than aptly, disgusted by too many priests who do the fish in a barrel. But you can not be driving on makeshift bases. I think a good resistance line has been well defined by “four cardinal” and behind that we should compattarci.

    I hope that Don Minutella compare that to the Fathers of Patmos and other sites that have explicitly calls, so that it can better channel the energies that can express. I know there is an initiative that Don Minutella launched for the second half of the month and maybe there is plenty of time to orient

  8. Reverend P. Ariel:

    1) I saw the video that she recalls the beginning of his article, but I have not received "the other is worse" if anything,: with the blessing of their bishop : "Go on like this is the new well and the new truth";
    2) Jesus never approved the sin of Judah, and nor has cited as example to emulate. Peter and the other Apostles, Although fragile in their humanity, they never taught that good is evil and evil is good;
    3) the Nazi, the military hierarchy of the time, He has applied the same logic of obedience that she expects from his colleague in relation to the orders of Hitler, we all know what happened;
    4) what Don complaint Minutella, although it is not a diligent pupil and a little 'nerd, It does not seem to refer to the human misery of the church hierarchy;
    5) the problem is much more serious, not manifested even at the firebrand of hell (according to the Beata Serafina Micheli). The hierarchy of the time, including the Pope, It does not appear to have deleted the ten commandments forcing with repression to adhere to a set of guidelines backwards;
    6) part of their, have to question what happened…

    1. Dear Reader,

      i'm sorry, but what she claims is amply refuted by the mystical revelations of Beata Quartina the noble family of the Marquis del Grillo, for which it is being the cause of canonization and almost certain his proclaimed a Doctor of the Church.

      I suggest you watch this short video segment by clicking WHO.

    2. Dear Reader,

      what she says to the point n. 1 that I 'sensed', finds WHO [by the minute 27 to follow], because we, Before his debut in public, we usually always read up and very well, species in painful and sensitive cases like this Treaty.

      For all the rest, however that is the argument of the Blessed Quartina which has referred the Father Ariel.

  9. The Medjugorje message 2 April is all focused on the feeling: It is strictly asks “pray with feeling” as if this was the keystone of prayer, when, of always, Catholic doctrine taught that devotion in the feeling, ie the sensitive, the numb, or addiritura aversion only just accidents before the substance that is the duty of all to prayer. Don Minutella, which follows the same strand, In fact he also has expressions and supports Mediugorie and Anguera, It seems victim of the same misleading concepts. And’ true that there is a certain crisis in the Church but is not that angry and pulling stones, as he does, Questa your cartoon, if anything, with his disobedience makes the damage even wider and he is also a participant. I hope to reflect and choose obedience, the humility and the Cross.

  10. Dearest Father Ariel S. Levi Gualdo,

    I understand that she wants to convince me that in his article that the "depth of rational and scientific content" resides in its phrases like: "Homilies and catechesis [Don Minutella], in which emerges a catastrophism, his, based on pessimism that is negation of our Holy Faith, … [homilies] structured in the style of preachers of certain evangelical sects, …”. But she, He has never read the catechism of St. Caterina da Siena (by it.), He perceives - but "evangelical preachers"- such a strength and vehemently, that those of Don Minutella pale in comparison, or a St. Vincenzo Ferrer, or a St. Alphonsus Maria De Liguori, or even many other great saints… without considering then "catastrophism" in this great Marian apparitions (all approved by the Church) such as those of Fatima, La Salette, Akita, and other… or maybe she would have the courage to censor what does the Great Mother of God (with "theological preparation" that she possesses would definitely possible) to put in those appeals maternal line, all infused with "emotion" and so simplistically and Miserably "heartfelt"! Well, Consider the gentle reader, though here I have just provided an answer in the manner "subjective-sentimental-emotional", or it may be, on the contrary, theologically unexceptionable.

    Is there "depth of rational and scientific content," she says: "Recalls [Don Minutella] the theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar are bold and arbitrary and they can deduce that his knowledge of the work of this scholar of the twentieth century is approximate, quindi falsifying, ... "At this point I have to ask: but she has never heard any number of conferences and catechesis of Don Minutella [I remember in passing that they have tens of thousands of faithful listeners, unlike its, since only they have tens of listeners, However without the thousands], enough to get her to erect a true and sole interpreter of the thought of H. The. von Balthasar? Or again, when you say: "... having read and studied does not mean to have understood, and especially highly complex arguments such as those of this Author, to sift them not just a smattering of decadent neoscholasticism, It is required a solid education and metaphysical Aristotelian-Thomist (!)”, she is implicitly saying that only one Ariel S. Levi Gualdo (or at least someone came to such payments intellectual heights) It lives up to interpret a yes excelled theologian! Well, where I come from, This we call "intellectual pride" ... excuse me, in this way, the perhaps I am responding in a "subjective-sentimental-emotional"?

    Where is his "depth of rational and scientific content," she says: "Mariology [Don Minutella] It transcends into forms of Mariolatry, however, in a Latin-Mediterranean context ... ", since she is insinuating that (by it.) a "giant" of spirituality, as Giovanni Paolo II, that even in its emblem (but especially in what he did and said,) shouted essere "wasabi" [Seas]? But even a St. Massimiliano Maria Kolbe, or St. Bernardo di Chiaravalle, o san da Luigi Maria Grignon Monfort, and many others? The answer perhaps I'm now in a "subjective-sentimental-emotional"?

    Where is the "depth of rational and scientific content," she says: "Had I been your bishop ... from the time I would have taken steps to revoke the right to celebrate Mass in public, administer confessions and to preach. (SIC!)”. [But this, She says it animated by the sincere and friendly "charity and priestly fraternity"]. In addition to this, she has the theological distinction between "very clear promise [obedience]"And" vote [obedience]”?…
    At this point, however,, I stop here (even if I could make other motions reliefs in its Article): I'm not going to write a treaty and then ... I would not slip "on a tangent subjective-sentimental-emotional" ...

    I conclude that only in highlighting his "contempt" (yes, I think it really necessary!) showing against Luther: but strange, Here she goes in contrast with the statements made by a Papa Bergoglio, who had rather words of admiration and enthusiasm towards this great eresarca ... but I think she, as a good and humble priest, having in mind the principle of authority, do not dare to challenge a so sublime papal teaching ...

    With mutual esteem,

    Sergio Russo.

    P.S. The video visionerò soon as I can.

    1. Gentile sig. Sergio Russo "parchments",

      I do not do office defenses but the priest, and then, p. Ariel, He does not need my defense.
      In fact she expresses “tummy”, moved by instinctive affection for a priest who judges (let me wrongly) a modern Savonarola, but it is not …
      I want to say that p. Ariel behind the lines a deep love for the priesthood and the priest in question.
      Talking about this with other priests, we said … “p. Ariel unable to defend even the indefensible … Yes, only that the brain superfine, He manages to put up a defense with an apparent conviction”.
      There are few words, however heavy as boulders, directed by him to our bishop indicated no aequitas and sense of proportion, just as one side is criticized don Minutella.
      The apparently little ? This says nothing ?
      Personally, I call it great speculative and dialectical skills, as she calls her insult.
      Don Minutella is not easy subject. Perhaps we too are guilty of not helping him … but think it is easy to help ? Think it's easy to be heard by a guy who communicates directly with the Virgin and the saints ?
      Then do not take as “insult” the reference to the Mediterranean spirit of our people some of the South in relation to popular cults “madonnas and saints” that sometimes they smell of paganitas. P. Ariel says right, because even if it is Roman [Ed Tuscan by birth and Roman paternal family], our Sicily knows it well. There were our bishops who worked years just to groped (not always successfully) to bring the Christian nell'alveo “popular cults” really pagan, taking insults, sometimes even verbal assaults.
      Many of us, have not gone to the infamous and Don Minutella denounced meeting with Enzo Bianchi, but none of us like he did from the pulpit during the celebration of the Mass He gave virtually the heretic bishop calling to talk about heresies a heretic would be (It is obvious) in turn a heretic.
      And here I close, inviting her to read well what has been written over the top, but above all behind …
      This I felt to tell, if my 72 years experiences have taught me something as a Christian and as a priest.

      Don Salvo (Palermo)

  11. Whichever way we look at the issue, are situations that are not good for the Church, and cost blood and pain to the Sacred Heart of Christ, rinnovandogli the Passion.

    I scatascio, said Padre Pio, is the time of general confusion because in the hearts of men entered the general disobedience. In fact we see that the S. Church suffers for these divisions of various groups that even in good faith, divide the Church, in many Churches and however God wants one Church, the Church of hearts, the Church of Love. To achieve this unity is necessary to return to obedience to those who are in charge of leading the people of God to unity, but if we loose us in many groppuscoli divided from each other that we bring here is the kingdom of Satan, because where there is no division reigns God but the devil reigns. God is unity, God wants obedience to a hierarchy of Love chosen precisely to create this unity. This unit is created if we obey the words of God's love, the words that come to us by the Church in order to unite all the peoples, all nations under the rule of Jesus Christ.

  12. Excellence P. Ariel S. Levi Gualdo,

    do you forgive me, I do not understand. Prior to that I had at the time read his: “Regarding the false prophet Enzo Bianchi”. Now, one of two: or she has changed his mind or I did not understand anything. Mind you, change of opinion is certainly not a crime, It may indeed be a manifestation of maturity; just to say with clarity. If, however, am I not understanding, I apologize and we close here.
    Grateful for the attention anyway, Cordially,

    Licio Zuliani

    1. Dear Licio,

      first of all reject the title of “Excellence” because no bishop, or if you want I can take it as a joke.

      On the columns of The island of Patmos, we have addressed the harsh criticism to Enzo Bianchi and we're working on for months in a publication which will be collected and rigorously documented all its dangerous heresies, spoken also by delicate places, type for example the pulpits of various churches cathedrals, including that of Palermo.

      But let me tell you that here, Bianchi, it does not matter.
      The object of the matter is that a priest from Palermo in the face of the ecclesial situation that generates many priests of discomfort and bitterness world, has decided to respond with an act of public defiance and disobedience solemn its Bishop, rigettandone legitimate apostolic authority.
      That's the problem, not to be confused with Enzo Bianchi, instead it is another thing and severe.

      At the moment a priest places so drastically challenged and rejected so strongly the authority of the bishop, It causes the heresies of Enzo Bianchi – which by the way it is a secular, not a priest -, pass unfortunately Incidental.

      If before a bishop who also commit mistakes or had a nonchalant of pastoral care guide, we priests begin to say, in the name of our staff “I“, who reject their authority, we would burst anarchy destroying more within the Church, What this worst heresy, Instead it is based on more or less serious doctrinal errors, It not infrequently moved by unconsciousness and even spirit anything but wicked, just think of Joachim of Fiore, who he was condemned for heresy, but at the same time, the Fourth Lateran Council which condemned him °, he recognized that, beyond his mistake, It was an undoubted holy man.

      Unlike heretic – I repeat may also be in good faith -, those who attack and declares illegitimate or serious error the authority of the Church, It is never a holy man, because as Blessed Antonio Rosmini said – also he fell into heresy and then recovered by the same and correct – "Man and the Christian is the first degree of the Sacrament of Orders".

      it Presbítero Alessandro Minutella, which these days is being defended claiming to have studied at the Pontifical Gregorian University and have earned two doctorates [cf. WHO], He did not understand this principle Rosminian, but most did not understand that wisdom is a gift that comes to us by the grace of the Holy Spirit, certainly he not by academic papers took the pontifical universities.

    1. Dear Reader,

      She “dismounts” the priesthood and the Church authorities, with the same arguments with which one or the other were disassembled by Giovanni Calvino.
      It is my personal opinion, it's a fact, a mere matter of historical fact not subject to easy refutation: She uses the same arguments of Protestant sects.
      And, I repeat, this is a fact, a pure and simple fact based on what you have written and what Calvin said before her.

      1. Al sig. Boanerges I would just mention that S. Paul, which it proves sometimes so individually “jealous” of “his Gospel”, with superficial words that readers might misinterpret, He went to Jerusalem to be confirmed in its evangelizing mission among the Gentiles, exposing “in private, the most respected figures who proclaim the gospel to the Gentiles, to avoid the risk of running or had run in vain (…) and known the grace given to me, Giacomo, Cephas and John, that the columns were estimated, They gave right to me and Barnabas as a sign of union…” (Galati, 2)

  14. Dear don Ariel
    Maybe she does well to exercise this form public fraternal correction Don Minutella who acts and speaks publicly.
    But I think that some things escape: the world of this priest and then the people following him is not at all what you think that is a concentration of deleterious and pagan popular devotion, I tell him to Southern. The people of don Minutella feeds and feeds on something else, a cauldron that comes from Fatima to Medjugorje, Anguera read the messages of recent months and find all don Minutella. I personally know priests who have had as a privileged source of spirituality blue book Gobbi. This people has been fed and encouraged for thirty years by a pope that the Totus Tuus of Monfort has made it one pennant, a flag. For thirty years he radiates Maria rallied and pulled the strings. Some of catechesis Father Livio 20 years would dwarf poor Don Minutella. Today, as a mutant X-Files blends, but so. I would explain it better, but space is this, I think he understood …

  15. Dearest Father Ariel S. Levi Gualdo, in short, she wants to convince me that since I mentioned the great saints like St. Luigi Maria Grignon from Monfort, or great popes such as St. Giovanni Paolo II, The've responded in the manner of Calvin and some evangelical sects, as well as having "dismantled" the priesthood and the Church authorities?
    Or, having appointed large Marian apparitions, come Fatima, La Salette, Akita… (all approved by the Church) I is responding in the manner of Calvin and certain evangelical sects, in addition to "dismantle" the priesthood and the Church authorities?
    od yet, reminding the theological distinction between the concept of "promise" and to "vote", and consigliadola going to meet again the story of St. Athanasius, and its tangled affairs of the Arian heresy, where the great saint was deemed not obliged to obey the bishops and even to Councils, Here's seems that I have responded in the manner of Calvin and some evangelical sects, in addition to "dismantle" the priesthood and the Church authorities?
    And finally, sharing that his [her, Don Ariel] "Holy contempt" (However, despite going against the current pope papal magisterium…

    Bergoglio) that you have (and I also) against Martin Lutero, just think that I am arguing in the manner of Calvin and some evangelical sects, in addition to "dismantle" the priesthood and the Church authorities?
    Well, then, at that point ... let him assess the kind visitors of this blog, if my be "Calvinist" answers or not ... (also for the fact that I seemed to be a bit 'too much on the front of "subjective-sentimental-emotional")…
    With mutual esteem. S.R.
    1° P.S.: I can not put together that his (right) rectify the player Tal, that you are not an "Excellence", however with the frequent use of "plural nous" ... boh ...
    2° P.S.: I can not put together when she scolds Don Minutella not up to a von Bhalthasar (as you rightly said that in that case "is not just a smattering of decadent neoscholasticism, but it is required a solid education and metaphysical Aristotelian-Thomistic ") and then, He is having learned that Don Minutella has two doctorates in the field, then ... but she says that "wisdom is a gift that comes to us from academic papers took the pontifical universities" ... mah ...

    1. and … "Let him assess the kind visitors of this blog, if my answers are "Calvinist" or not ... ".

      But above all, let them evaluate if this spirit of contentiousness meets trappings of living, feel, think and express themselves Catholic.
      Yes, let him evaluate them.

      She puts together in a huge soup everything and its opposite, but especially delicate and complex issues, for example Ario and Arian heresy, through the Marian revelations of history and coming to the magisterium or “not teaching” the current pontificate, etc ..

      But what strikes, is more than all his lack of consistency, because they carry on his spirit quarrelsome, consistency becomes for her a vague opinion accessory, indeed entirely relative. And with that I remind you that in his other writings and comments passed, she has harshly attacked the theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar using it to :

      1. fire on Nouvelle Thèologie ;
      2. explain how these authors, Balthasar even, They had badly damaged the church with their errors.

      In a paper she accused him of having denied Balthasar hell.
      In response,, on that occasion, I replied that the Balthasar has never denied hell and in truth, responding to a reporter, He made a joke – and I repeat a joke -, in which said: "Hell exists, but I hope it is empty '.
      The reporter then published an article by Balthasar tell what he had said: "Hell exists but is empty '.

      From this fact, Balthasar, He was touched to the point that then wrote and published two essays about hell, to speak of hell and eternal damnation theology.

      When I gave her these explanations, She, with his style irredeemably fractious, He began to bring, just like this, all the more reasons to support massed fact that she was right and that Balthasar was a modernist heretic.

      Come May, now, It is instead making use of Balthasar to support his reasons?

      Will maybe, tomorrow, before to the subjective reasons for his passionate defenses, make use of Pelagius and Luther, to claim that what you say is right and, above all, highly consistent?

      But this, as you said: "Let him evaluate the kind readers'.

      P.S.

      I remember them, always about consistency, that the St. John Paul II quoted a high substantiate what she asserts – the series “I'm right because I also cited a Holy Pontiff” – is exactly the same St. Giovanni Paolo II that she, in other writings, It has variously defined as the “responsible” the “massacre” of that “syncretism” staged in Assisi.
      Therefore, in the various blog where she publishes his writings in my denial, see also publish these things, always consistent, because altrimento provider and do it …

  16. Father Ariel Caro,
    it is good to think about it and never answer straight off. I will insist, after mature reflection, It is not for the affirmation of my ego, to which they are attached very little truth. The fact is that the issue is important: Total chaos in many Christian times, mostly vintage Catholics like myself, They are looking for a reliable guide, non contradditoria. That was the point of my question, expressed albeit synthetically (but a few words to the wise). Certain, if you limit the discussion to “problem Enzo Bianchi”, there was no sense that I disturbassi. The fact is that the full title of his previous article I referred to, and myself entirely report, It is the following: ” Regarding the false prophet Enzo Bianchi: Disobeying certain bishops is only right, except falling into justifications of the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials.” And’ Admittedly, she points out in the same article that disobedience “dutiful, right, healthy and commendable” only it applies to the specific case; however, accepted a derogation, Who can deny another confrere in good faith the right to make use of free will?
    Cordially,
    Licio

  17. -Jesus was slapped for daring to reply to the high priest
    -Jesus chose to be killed rather than deny God the Father, rather than to compromise and save his life.

    Don Minutella was beside Jesus, never mind losing everything but not the soul.
    But I think , but I hope to be wrong, she would have sided with the accusers (obviously not knowing that humble man, helpless and attacked by all right-thinking people.. was the Messiah).

    The following statements by the way are in stark contrast to the charity of Jesus (remember the parable of the son prodigo..come behaves father?)

    “Had I been your Bishop [..] after she called and locked in a room with me, I made you repent of your sins, If that room you had not gone out after she kissed the hand with the knee flexed recognizing my apostolic authority, rinnovandomi obedience and declaring that would have acted in the manner indicated by me and controlled by virtue of the grace of state given to me, place the grace of your state does not exist and above all can not operate and produce fruit without the top grace of the bishop was”.

    "After that it would be appropriate for you to retire for a period of two years in a monastery, making you follow a good spiritual director for the care of your soul and an elderly theologian specialist who can heal the severe deformation of your theological thinking steeped in adulteration and serious errors "

    "Do not wait or linger in addition to asking so docile and humble forgiveness of your Bishop, to which you are not required to pay tribute estimate, because you never gave it to him promise, as none of us has ever promised to estimate the proper Bishop, But obedience yes, him that you, because gliel'hai solemnly promise. "

    Jesus imprisons, not humiliate , sottomette..è not himself to be imprisoned , to humble, to submit.
    For years I was an atheist and anti-Christian, what do you think I thought of Christians who speak like you? I used them to throw mud on the Church.. "here! Vedete..ecco as they are Christians!"..speravo can hear certain phrases in the mouths of Christians. ; )
    Do I think I would become a Christian? What to what he said would have convinced me to embrace the faith? Thank God I met the lambs.

    recapping, She accuses Don Minutella of the following crimes:

    -violation of the norms of the Church
    -He has exposed the errors committed by priests
    -mariolatria
    -ignorance
    -“Don minutella come Lutero”
    -not obedience to the bishop, as per norms of the Church.
    -Failure to comply with pope

    Wanting to do well are the accusations made by temple priests to Jesus:

    -Jesus says "follow laws made by men and transgress the law of God" (is: Bergoglio has deleted 6th Commandment, Bishop approved the sacrilege of Forget)
    -Jesus responds to the priests PUBLICLY "look at the speck but you do not see the beam, discarded at a gnat and swallow a camel "
    -Jesus loves her mother to madness, He makes his first creature that corredentrice..la, how God, nuova..anima resurrected to life and body. Don Minutella non adora Maria, He calls her "Mom" as Jesus. She calls it like? He calls?
    -Jesus says that God hides things from the learned to disclose them to the simple souls. I am ignorant, and I thank God for having understood things she definitely escape.
    -Jesus was accused of heresy, to be head of a sect
    -Jesus was slapped for daring to argue ...

    If I wanted the world would have been out of the Church, Instead the Church you propose we defend and that is how the world.

    For years I was an atheist and anti-Christian, what do you think I thought of Christians who speak like you? I used them to throw mud on the Church.. "here! Vedete..ecco as they are Christians!"..speravo can hear certain phrases in the mouths of Christians. ; )
    Do I think I would become a Christian? What to what he said would have convinced me to embrace the faith? Thank God I met the lambs

    Remember that salvation is Jesus, remember that even the good thief entered paradise.
    Instead Caiaphas is damned forever.

    Peace and good, I will remember you in my prayers. I hope to meet her in heaven.

    (I do not care if the public, this is for the love lei..Gesù, she does not give up so easily!)

    1. Here, another “theologian” and “exegete” it gives Tango Passion!

      First of all to inform you that she is a heretic, having said that I'll explain why.
      She accuses the Supreme Pontiff to have deleted the 6th commandment: "is: Bergoglio has deleted 6th Commandment […]».
      If the Successor of Peter had done this – What he did not do -, It would have fallen into something worse heresy: the most serious apostasy from the faith.
      Now, accuse the Supreme Pontiff of apostasy, it means to be heretics, because only a heretic can accuse the guardian of to have canceled the Law of God the deposit of faith.

      And tell me … The also show that Jesus, the Word of God made man, He has disobeyed the Father and has rebelled against him?
      Why see, in our faith – in her I do not know, I can not know -, It has given a dramatic step in the life of the true God and true Man: having accepted the bitter cup that is, obeying the will of the Father [cf. Mt 20:23; MC 10:40;Mt 26:39; MC 14:36; LC 22:42; GV 12:27].

      The Blessed Apostle Paul says in other words still:

      Christ, while it is of divine nature,
      I not cling
      equality with God;
      but he emptied himself,
      assuming the condition of servant
      and becoming like men;
      appeared in human form,
      he humbled himself
      and became obedient unto death
      and death on the cross.
      Therefore God has highly exalted
      and she gave him the name
      that is above every other name;
      that at the name of Jesus
      every knee should bend
      in the heavens, on earth and under the earth;
      and every tongue
      that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father [Within 2, 6-11].

      Regarding Maria Corredentrice I reported – and if there is evidence to the contrary the exhibit – that as of Blessed Pius IX until reaching Benedict XVI, passing by St. Pius X, Pio XII, Blessed Paul VI and John Paul II, who were men of great Marian devotion, the Church has always refused to question the eventual proclamation of the dogma of Mary Co, more advanced times required at various popes by some theologians. The more decisive in saying “No!” it was Saint Giovanni Paolo II, the emblem of Beata Vergine had even wanted in his papal coat of arms.

      And with this we have clarified, her one hand, the player on the other hand, from what pulpit tuonate certain defenses through a false and falsante use of the Gospel and the truth of our Holy Faith.

      She writes:

      "For years I was an atheist and anti-Christian, what do you think I thought of Christians who speak like you? I used them to throw mud on the Church.. "here! Vedete..ecco as they are Christians!"..speravo can hear certain phrases in the mouths of Christians. ; )
      Do I think I would become a Christian? What to what he said would have convinced me to embrace the faith? Thank God I met the lambs ".

      Well I tell her:

      it is better to an honest atheist, that a Catholic fanatic and ignorant in the fundamental meterie of doctrine and faith.

  18. If I can not criticize a bishop who allows heresies and even endorse the, What am I doing in a Church united in heresy? I prefer to be separated in the truth’ that united in falsehood!
