The paradigm of “as direct Stolta”: from the fifteenth century monasteries reduced to brothels to the twenty-first century infertility. The rejection of reality creates the decadence that leads to death. We can say that in religious life for women all went well after Vatican II ?

THE PARADIGM OF STRAIGHT Stolta: FROM THE MONASTERY OF XV CENTURY A REDUCED brothels TO THE XXI CENTURY STERILITY. REFUSAL OF REALITY THAT CREATES VOID THAT LEADS TO DEATH. WE CAN SAY THAT IN RELIGIOUS LIFE FEMALE EVERYTHING WENT WELL AFTER THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL ?

.

The products posthumously to the Second Vatican Council are now under the eyes of all: half a century by what some suggest as the largest Church Council, or the council of the councils, the Church is facing a crisis of doctrine, moral and spiritual before which it is really hard to find historical precedents, because it is a situation of a crisis entirely new. Therefore, before the as direct Stolta who claims: "Know we can not go back to the dark times of the Council of Trent!», I think I can replicate that in terms of women's religious life, perhaps it would be better to go back to the period before the Council of Trent, when many female monasteries were reduced to authentic brothels, because in fact we spent the better, at least, They coexisted with the good wheat and weeds.

It was in the end of the year away 1563 when the 3 December, two days before the closure of the session, The Council of Trent approved a decree on religious and the nuns. Within this document they were also established more precise rules on the subject of the enclosure, linked to religious and to the interiors and exteriors of their homes. Already at the end of the thirteenth century, with the bubble dangerously promulgated in 1298 by Pope Boniface VIII, then entered into force in 1302, They were repeated rules compliance of the enclosure and its reintroduction wherever they were abandoned [1]. Even despite, at the turn of the XV and XVI century, rules enclosure had not been effectively implemented, except by a few female religious orders: the Poor Clares, the Dominican, the first Carmelite and Carthusian. All other nuns, especially those living in their great abbeys and monasteries, It had increasingly moved away from those very precise and strict rules aimed at the moral protection of women's religious institutions.

.

It would be interesting and instructive to study in depth of Teresa of Avila real life, that his daughters for the first are careful not to transmit, making them more comfortable to just remember and recount his sublime ecstasies, but they came toward the end of his life. Different was the existence of this great Saint and reformer of the Carmelite Order, just remember that when he was appointed prioress of the Monastery of the Incarnation in Avila, the one hundred and thirty nuns who lived there gave rise to riots to prevent her from entering, until he physically attacks on the door of the monastery the procession that accompanied the new prioress, who was not elected by the chapter of nuns, but chosen by superiors of the Order at the urging of the Ecclesiastical Authority of the place, to bring into line the turbulent and relaxed inhabitants of the monastery. Why not mention that this great Tridentine reform, First of mystical ecstasy, He had to use as prioress of the populous monastery of on-call duty, used as appropriate for business to beat the rebellious nuns? And why, not mentioning that his room was guarded night and its cuisine and its controlled foods with care to avoid being poisoned? Therefore, the figure of St. Teresa of Avila only reduced to a mystical ecstatic Christological love, is an image that if one part is more convenient course, other less embarrasses all those who to this day, albeit in different ways and forms, in over five hundred years they have not yet transposed the solemn lesson of their Holy Mother.

.

How Teresa's lesson has not been transposed? To do understand we must always resort to practical concrete examples, like this: Some years ago I found myself celebrating Mass in a monastery of Carmelite nuns in place of the chaplain. When at the time of Holy Communion I went to the grating of the choir, the prioress came forward to me with a glass case to take the Eucharist to a nun who could not walk. the whispered:

.

"Rev. Madre, do not worry about it, I open the lattice gate that I enter into the choir to bring Communion to the sick nun ".

.

Replica prioress:

.

"It is not possible, knows: we papal enclosure, for this I am an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion ".

.

I do not put certain to make a fuss with the ciborium in his hand containing the Precious Body of Christ, the so called the Holy Eucharist to bring to sister. After Mass I left the church and, before rising in the car, I put it in a hidden corner of the outer wall of the enclosure, I turned on the phone and checked if there were missed calls and messages. And so, from within Blessed papal enclosure, I hear male voices. I move away from the wall and climb on a nearby off to see from a distance if I can catch a glimpse inside the cloistered space. Beyond the wall of Blessed papal enclosure there were two people in their twenties, dressed in a tank top and shorts - to clarify: The football shorts, in practice the underwear - which I assume were doing chores, because they work tools. It was clear that at that time they were on break, In fact they were talking loudly loudly and fiddling with one of their cell phones, as if they were watching something particularly funny on display.

.

Needless to specify in, because with common sense we can also reach the fasting in canon law: a priest, the exercise of its functions can sacramental, indeed must enter the necessary papal enclosure, with all the methods dictated by the canons and the monastic rules - I know, and my brother priests equally -, to administer the Sacraments to the sick nuns. But above all I have full authority to do that just in case, while the prioress prevented me to join the choir during the celebration of Holy Mass to bring Holy Communion to a sick before the whole community, and under the eyes of the faithful in the church, at the same time, however, he allowed a couple of young men more undressed than dressed to move uninhibited, coarse and irreverent in the spaces of Blessed papal enclosure the Discalced Carmelites. And while pouring followed the diaphanous image of Teresa of Avila in ecstasy, at the same time it continues to ignore that Holy Mother, the reform of the Order Carmelite, He made it necessary even with a stick. And with this as I think was explained and clarified how five hundred years, not for a few, rather unfortunately for many, They are spent unnecessarily, from century to century, reform of the reform.

WHEN TRAGEDY IS TOO TRAGIC, BETTER dampen WITH COLOR NOTE

.

When problems are very serious and situations that derive truly tragic, I always avail of a consolidated my faculties: From a note of color. In this case, a rose note, femininely intended. Indeed, to inspire this paper was a woman belonging to the most unfortunate of women's categories, which it is that of so-called its direct Stolte. Having said this, it should be stated that many priests and monks, in their superficial folly, They can only be overcome by the nuns. The sisters remain unsurpassed in fact an element to which even the worst of clerics and religious never be able to reach: that particular malice characterized by cruelty elements often untold which is totally unique and peculiar of the sisters. And so, finding a deal with a as direct Stolta belonging to one of an increasing number of congregations in agony destined in the coming years to the total extinction for lack of vocations and for the now very high age of religious in it survived, my question if by chance, during the period after the Second Vatican Council, something in his, as in many other congregations, It did not go the right way, the poor responds with this display of admirable acumen: "Know we can not go back to the dark times of the Council of Trent!».

.

The I state and I admit "candidly": I do not ask better than to be able to embarrass a as direct Stolta, those which on one hand are afraid of opening, modernity and confidence, other, if a four year old of their asylum must be helped to urinate, here to assist ship's secular teacher, They may remain troubled day and night for a week by the attribute of a beardless little angel, though the little angels do not orinino, since they lacked the raw material, namely the manly attribute, given that the angels have no sex. Indeed, none of our Guardian Angels was never sick prostate, while being forced to act as patron to some of the worst priests, the worst of the worst monks and nuns, What this would cause prostate cancer also apparatus urologenitale healthier. Maybe that's why the angels were created without sex, to avoid serious inflammatory and cancer diseases of the urogenital reactive to having to fulfill the role of priests keepers, brothers and sisters. Granted and admitted everything, I went to my answer was that this:

.

"You see, Dear sister, the Council of Trent, in case you did not know, of merit he has had many and, to be honest, the worst darkness, if anything, has freed us. In a very special way he has delivered you religious, for example prohibiting the establishment and the lives of those who called themselves secular language Case Closed».

.

However, since the as direct Stolta I do not understand, I wonder if instead or pretended not to understand, I had to enlighten thus continuing the conversation:

.

"... you know that before the Council of Trent had obscure monasteries and convents that were authentic brothels? Suffice it to say that during his homily from the pulpit of the Basilica of San Marco held on 25 December 1497, the famous Franciscan preacher Timothy from Lucca had railed against the sins being committed in the convents of Venice denouncing: “[…] when some Lord in this land, you show him the monasteries of nuns, but they are not monasteries, but brothels and public brothels” [2]. These were in fact the monasteries - namely the brothels - because the noble and wealthy families in a very special way, often related to issues both their assets, It is sometimes also political issues, They locked up - or as he used to say monacavano - their daughters, within those religious structures, But they had their separate accommodation, their servants and their own kitchen. There were powerful and noble families who built specifically abbeys and monasteries for their daughters, equipping of assets and income; and young monacate of these families, in these monasteries were always elected abbess and rigor, because otherwise the powerful family would have revoked annuities. Animate so far by faith, vocation and virtues of life, young led within those sacred walls mundane existences, not infrequently as real courtesans, complete with internal parties and men who went in and out without problems; and monasteries where reigned absolute in the most unspeakable moral debauchery, They were those of the Benedictine monks and nuns of the Cistercian ".

.

In 1514 the Inquisition in Venice He had the opportunity to deal with a case beyond the same human imagination, the pious Benedictine monks of the Monastery of San Zaccaria, than happy to have turned their parlor - and not just the parlor -, in a reception lounge for youngsters, singers and actors, One day they organized a costume party that in its course turned into a veritable bacchanal that rivals the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, that as we recall for possible Roman history fasts were two brothels in the open [3].

.

The Church Council of Trent first he reported the monasteries and convents to be what they were supposed to be: places of prayer and penance. The decree of 3 December 1563 He forbade the profession of vows before the age of sixteen and the entrance into the monastery before the twelve; He imposed the requirement of at least one year of novitiate and ruled that the bishop FINDS the real will of the young person to freely pursue a religious life. That decree reestablished so the principle of the enclosure, and subject to few exceptions no nun could leave the monastery and no outsider could enter, especially men. In 1566, with the bubble About pastoral duties the Holy Pontiff Pius V impose the penalty of excommunication of all offenders, while the ecclesiastical laws had already clarified and included among the offenses that of carnal sacrilege. So only a priest, preferably elderly or in any case chosen with care by the bishop, He was admitted within the enclosure and solely to administer the sacraments to the sick or infirm nuns, and it was required by canon laws that four elderly nuns I welcome him at the entrance of the enclosure, They accompany him and then lead him back exit. The young nuns relationships with family were reduced to short meetings in the parlor, all with the rigid separation created by dense gratings, from which he could hear the voice of the nun but only barely one could catch a glimpse of the figure. The great noble families raised many protests against this hardening of convent life, but none of their protests prevented the application of the new rules born from the "dark times of the Council of Trent", which prevented families to solve their capital problems and inheritance sending their daughters in the abbeys and monasteries, and also preventing daughters without any glimmer of vocation to change these religious houses in authentic brothels within which to lead lives of real courtesans. A phenomenon, that of young people forced to monacazione, who assumed implications at times not a little disturbing, especially in the cities of Venice, Naples and Palermo.

.

Several decades after the end of the Council of Trent, the civil authorities of the Republic of Venice came to introduce a law against monachini - the nuns lovers were given in this way - which provided up to the death penalty, This is not only for the carnal sacrilege but also for the simple violation of the enclosure. Law introduced in concrete but remained a dead letter made, because both the dissolute nuns, both their monachini, they belonged, if no penalty but almost always, the most powerful and highly placed families of those same cities.

.

Not only, the Council of Trent, dignity was returned to religious life, because after that season of reform, the Church and the world was able to witness one of his extraordinary rebirth. The whole pace of as direct Stolta with hair in the wind and to his knees skirts fluttering on the 'obscurantism Tridentine "at the bedside of his dying congregation now in the oncology department of women's religious life, which currently hospitalized dozens of religious congregations that within a few years no longer exist.

.

It was the true obscurantism!

.

THE COUNCIL OF TRENT OFFERED A BIG MEDICAL CARE BUT WAS NOT A TOTAL OF MANY DOCTORS DO NOT CAUSE THE practiced

.

The Council of Trent It was not exactly a meeting between brothers gathered in Rome to talk a little ' modernization and pastoral, replacing dialogue at the harsh sentence and the rigor of the hard doctrine to theological reasoning open and pluralist, like five centuries following - just to clarify -, It was reduced the Second Vatican Council, during which it was produced: first para-council theologians in cahoots with journalists, Then follows the much more problematic post-council, which gave rise to that for years I define as the Council egomenico socio-theologians. The Council of Trent had first run for eighteen years [1545 – 1563] and it took place under the pontificates of Popes Paul III, born Alessandro Farnese principles [Canine 1468 - Rome 1549], Giulio III [Monte San Savino 1487 - Rome 1555], PO IV [Milan 1499 - Rome 1565]. I considered it appropriate to clarify this history because of the ignorance that reigns today - alas, even and especially in the Catholic clergy -, not rarely have heard clergy and pastors in the care of souls say that the Council of Trent would take place under the pontificate of St. Pius V, He was instead elected two years after the closing of the Council of Trent, in 1566. This confusion unfortunately generated from gross ignorance stems from the fact that the Saint Pius V published 14 July 1570 the reformed and unified edition Roman, also known as Missal of St. Pius V or as Tridentine Missal.

.

The Council of Trent offered, Also at disciplinary level, undoubted, large and effective treatments. We could say that in his own way he established chemotherapy to fight cancer and prevent the spread of metastases in the body of the Church. Even in spite of the visible Church it was far from the mutate in the following decades in the Heavenly Jerusalem, because the fight against cancer and metastases will always be ineffective if oncologists in charge fail to carry out the treatment with all its therapies. All this we learn from the writings and words penned fire and spoken by different saints in their lyrics or sermons. Sant'Alfonso Maria de 'Liguori, Bishop and Doctor of the Church [1696-1726] He did not hesitate to complain about the bleak and low level of Bishops of Southern Italy, their economic interests and their subservience to political power in achieving the benefits and perquisites; He did not hesitate even to identify them scarce pastoral skills, but above the low theological formation, with all that could ensue from such bishops to their clergy. Needless to say, we are about two centuries after the close of the Council of Trent.

.

Complaints similar to those of the Holy Bishop and doctor Alfonso Maria de 'Liguori, emerge in different expressive style but identical in substance from the writings of Blessed Antonio Rosmini, It collected more than a century after the work The Five Wounds of the Holy Church [the text edited by Rosmini Fathers is readable WHO].

.

Are Sant'Alfonso Maria de 'Liguori, below Blessed Antonio Rosimini, respectively they were expressed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries within terms so real and severe, this is due to the fact that after two three centuries after the close of the Council of Trent, even some of its fundamental rules had not yet been applied in many regions of old Europe, including quite a few ancient local churches of apostolic foundation. Thus, for seeming paradox, The Council of Trent had better and more widespread application in mission lands through the work of missionaries, that moving the Tridentine whole continents evangelized disciplines. The consequences were that, while in Latin America it provided to establish missions missionaries in the sixteenth century seminars made compulsory by the Fathers of the Council for the formation of priests, in many ancient Diocese of Southern Italy, the mid-eighteenth century, the seminars were not yet in place. And when they were instituted, it were to form in them the children of the nobility or the upper middle class, then be allocated to important ecclesiastical posts, while the majority of future priests seguitavano to receive their education from poor rural pastors as they did before the Council of Trent. It should not be forgotten that for matters both political and economic, in many European countries, the application of many canons of the Council of Trent, It was hampered by the rulers, obviously with the complacent acquiescence of the local bishops, that if one side did not apply, other lucravano, by the Bourbons in southern Italy as the German princes in the far north of Europe, their good benefits and perquisites.

.

The Council of Trent established the age of twenty-five years to receive priestly ordination, but many bishops are not adhered to that as to other provisions, It is something comprehensive as one of the great saints of charity, Vincenzo de 'Paoli [Pouy, 1581 - Paris, 1660], coming from a very poor family and encouraged by his father to study divinity with the support of a wealthy lawyer of Toulouse who paid his education expenses, but above all we do not know if it moved initially from a true vocation, which in any case came later and with results quite extraordinary. Indeed, the father, he hoped that in the future, acquired one status top, his son could help and support the family. Regardless of the provisions of the first four decades by the canons of the Council of Trent, the Bishop of Toulouse ordained him priest at only nineteen years 23 September 1600.

.

AFTER THE COUNCIL OF TRENT, MAYBE THE DISAPPEARED FROM MONASTERIES malpractice FEMALE?

.

The sixteenth century was undoubtedly the century of the great reformers and great Saints who formed and concrete implementation of the reforms made by the Council of Trent, think of Saint Ignatius [Azpeitia, 1491 - Rome, 1556] and his first Comrades, San Filippo Blacks [Florence, 1515 - Rome 1595] and St. Felix of Cantalice [Cantalice, 1515 - Rome, 1587], a San Carlo Borromeo [Arona, 1538 – Milano, 1584], San Pietro of Alcantara [Alcántara, 1499 – Arenas, 1562], a Santa Teresa d’Avila [Avila, 1515 - Alba de Tormes, 1582] and St. John of the Cross [Fontiveros, 1542 – Úbeda, 1591], San Giovanni d'Avila [Almodóvar del Campo, 1499 - Montilla, 1569], St John of God [Montemor-o-Novo, 1495 – Granada, 1550] ... without forgetting of course the already mentioned figure of the Saint Pius V [Bosco Marengo, 1504 - Rome, 1572], that for these Saints was inspiring and authentic teaching model, moral and pastoral virtues.

.

The vices and moral decadence that snaked in convents and monasteries between the fifteenth and the sixteenth, They were far from being eradicated. Or to put it with some sad examples chosen at random among the many historically available: a stone's throw from Rome, in the town of Sora, the mid-nineteenth, in the canonical territory of the Diocese of Sora-Aquino-Pontecorvo, the abbess of the monastery of Santa Chiara, Domna Maria Francesca Tronconi, Arch-communicated Montecassino, Dom Celestino Gonzaga from Naples, that Canon Basil Fortuna, member of the Chapter of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta in Sora and ordinary confessor of the nuns of St. Clare, He had abused three nuns during sacramental confessions and have them put pregnant. of the three, a certain Iacobelli, in the days that the abbess she composed that letter was about to give birth [4].

.

How can we forget what we are then able certain religious, just tell among many a case: in 1821, two nuns of the monastery of St. Andrew Apostle to Arpino and with them a third, even schoolgirl, They accused the ordinary confessor of serious harassment. After careful canonical investigations the allegations proved unfounded, however, and the three women withdrew their complaint, trying to argue that you were wrong and that they had merely misunderstood the priest. The sad story was completely different, however, in terms: one of the nuns had marchingegnato all with the support and complicity of the other two, wishing she retaliate in every way the confessor who the previous year had Ecclesiastical Authority denounced a priest to serious abuses of religious. The priest denounced, But this was a relative of a nun, he thought tarnished the good name of his family because of that complaint. Thus, religious, He tried to avenge this innocent turning to the same charge [5].

.

According to the term of the Holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church Ambrose of Milan [France 337 – Mediolanum 397] the Church is "chaste whore», One woman chaste. Expression, the ancient Bishop of Milan on which over a decade ago, Venerable Pope Benedict XVI structured one of his homilies pointing to the Church as "holy and made up of sinners" [6] [the full text is readable, WHO]. In some particular historical moments, the Church does not even appear to be made up simply defeasible men and sinners, but as a veritable structure of sin which produces an internal sin and that it spreads to its outer.

.

Even before the Council of Trent, the immorality and the great moral decay that raged in the clergy was condemned in the strongest possible terms by the Fourth Lateran Council, Seventy who promulgated decrees of reform and that he was called to the man of iron of Pope Innocent III [Gavignano 1161 – Perugia 1216]. The disciplinary canons of this council suggest in a very clear and comprehensive way what were the deep and serious moral lapse and corruptions that impestavano the clergy. And yet, a few decades later, after the celebration of that Council, another saint and doctor of the Church, Bonaventure [Bagnoregio 1221 - Lyon 1274], he expressed himself in these terms at all reassuring:

.

"Rome corrupts the prelates that corrupt priests who corrupt the people of God".

.

To assess the situation in this Church, one wonders if the disciplinary canons against moral immorality of the clergy were written for the church 1215 or to those of today [text in Italian translation is readable, WHO].

.

No Council, He never made the perfect Church, none of them has ever destroyed corruption of man and sin. I concilî, some of them in particular, They have given the Church oxygen and they put her in a position to continue to live in an ecclesial body made up of clerics and lay faithful within which always lived with sinners and saints. All this is explained by the parable of the weeds and the good grain that ends with these words:

.

«[…] From where it is therefore the tares? He answered: An enemy has done this. And the servants said: Do you want us to go and gather? No, replied, because when you, gathering the weeds, with it also uproot the wheat. Let them both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to burn; but gather the wheat into my barn " [Mt 13, 27-30].

.

WHAT IS THE REAL SITUATION OF WOMEN RELIGIOUS LIFE AFTER THE GREAT BREATH OF THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL ?

.

To answer this question let's start from the figures: the world's population now has seven and a half billion people, in today's world the average age of a woman's life is 70 years and eight months; that of a European woman is 84 years and nine months. Today the world's Catholics are about one billion three hundred million. The religious orders and religious congregations, according to statistics the 30 October 2018 They have made official data 2017, amount to 659.445, subtracting the number of deaths to the number of new religious professions have a decrease of less 10.885, the average age of religious is equal to 64 year old, but if the statistics were removed from Africa and some Asian countries, the average age of religious would be above 70 year old, testing is something that in Europe, for two decades in this part, religious are gradually disappearing from whole diocese [cf. official statistics, WHO]. We are now going back sixty years, to be exact, five years before the opening of the Second Vatican Council, when according to the paradigm of as direct Stolta used as the theme of my writing, vigevano rules "obscurantist" the Council of Trent. In 1958 the world population had two billion nine hundred million people, Catholics around the world were about 800 millions, the average age of a woman's life was 49 year old, that of a European woman 67 year old, religious orders and religious congregations were in 1957 one million and sixty thousand, the average age of the religious was 41 year old, subtracting the number of deaths to the number of new religious professions have increased more 12.450.

.

I note, who possibly had not paid any attention, when are these two alarming statistics: that recorded when ever existed "obscurantism Tridentine", one recorded half a century after the explosion of New Pentecost occurred with the Second Vatican Council. The alarming fact is based on both the number of the world population and on that of Catholics worldwide. Indeed, in the era when "obscurantist" the world's population did not reach three billion people and the Catholics were about 800 millions, religious in the world were more than a million, while half a century after New Pentecost, compared with a world population more than doubled - seven billion and a half people -, and in the face of a worldwide Catholic population increased from about 800 millions of faithful to one billion three hundred million, religious are lowered to an equal number to over 400.000 in just sixty years, all - I repeat again - while the world's population had more than doubled, while Catholics were half a billion members in more than about half a century before.

.

If the numbers are dry and have no soul, But they have a history, above all, a reason for being, here then rise to the first question: if after what some ecclesiastics and contemporary theologians define triumphantly as the greatest council of church history, we have come to these statistics; if by the day close religious institutions, monasteries and convents historical tradition, someone, intends to begin to wonder if, in what at the time was defined as New Pentecost, something did not go the right way? It is a response, this, which is required so serenely painful to the Ecclesiastical Authority and to the Pastors of the Church, It is not claimed by prevention, or irony, and least of all by blind ideology: is a response claimed by the numbers, which as I said before do not have souls, but they have their own history and their reason for being. And, These staggering numbers, half a century since the end of the church council represent a question that just claim reply, although it costs to admit that just before, during and after Vatican II, something went wrong, with the consequent result that today we have before; results made entirely undeniable aridity, but at the same time from the undeniable precision of the numbers.

.

It WAS REQUIRED "UPDATE" OF RELIGIOUS STROKES SUITS, HEADS UNCOVERED AND PUT INTO FOLD THE HAIRDRESSER ?

.

Between the mid-sixties and the early seventies of the twentieth century, the lives of most women's congregations was shocked - more and worse than those of men -, the largest wave of so-called "update". There have been various capocomici during the unhappy season of the post-conciliar egomenico - ahead of all the Jesuits, that in many religious institutes held for many years the ministry of confessors and spiritual directors -, who they have literally turned upside down life, the meaning of life and charisma of those institutions. O, always use concrete examples: but the 1965 religious were covered with their clothes from head to toe and her hair completely hidden by the veil, the meaning and the sense of which date until the time of the apostolic. The same Blessed Virgin Mary is depicted in iconography since the first centuries with so-called maphorion [maphórion]. The maphorion, then known as "monastic veil", It was and still is the sign of the virgins consecrated to God. The Blessed Apostle Paul, addressing to the people of Corinth, recommended for women to cover their heads. It is an apostolic letter from undoubtedly put the era and culture in which it was written, but through a message that has never lost relevance it implies the sign and the intimate sense of belonging to God the woman he consecrated [The Cor 11, 1-6]. But here suddenly, a few years after the last council, we found ourselves in front of nuns dressed in tailors, with skirts that barely covered the knee and with dyed hair treated with permanent and cared for by styling your hair done at the hairdresser. I wonder and wonder: and perhaps an attack of treason, just say and nothing but the truth, namely that such things, in North America and several European countries, They are mainly occurring at those religious congregations which have always, if not for real tradition, They are availing themselves of the Jesuits as confessors, spiritual directors, teachers and preachers? [one example among many, WHO].

.

The facts show that the so-called "update" of religious in tailors, with bared heads and put in the crook of hairdressers, produced emptying of entire congregations, which will disappear permanently when octogenarians survived today will finally be buried with their tailors, their bare heads and put them into the fold of the hairdresser. But it, die-date! And with them it will be delivered to the grave of their religious congregation, and also just updated.

.

THE RELIGIOUS HOUSES AND EMPTY nefarious "CAMPAIGNS PURCHASE" THE VARIOUS RELIGIOUS CONGREGATIONS Rasenti A TIME ... THE "TRAFFICKING IN BLACK"

.

In certain things we must proceed with caution because unfortunately there is an ideological closure priori: indeed, everything is black, itself is beautiful and good. Above all, everything is black, survived victim, or falling victim to the nefarious colonial policies and conquest of the various countries of the West. If in different countries of the African continent today, we are left with an unmanageable clergy that starting from the great chimera of inculturation - the other magic word of the post council - he has ended up becoming a clergy that ranges from animism and Catholicism adulterated and corrupted, this is due to the fact that between the middle and the end of the Sixties, the Holy Pontiff Paul VI had the questionable vision of wanting to create at all costs of the local bishops, unmindful that some of those countries had been evangelized even thirty years ago. There have been numerous cases of elevated subject to the episcopal dignity only forty years, or at thirty or thirty-eight, who had been baptized and become Christians at thirteen or fifteen years, after being born and raised in families that had taught them from childhood to animistic cults and the worship of ancestral spirits.

.

In times gone by there someone tried to tell the Holy Pontiff Paul VI that in order to create an indigenous clergy, and that it took generations to create the first bishops chosen among natives was best to wait for a century, or at least no less than seventy or eighty, but at this, he well knew him well, would not listen, committing, in this as in other cases, of considerable errors. We clarify the whole with an example related to a sad figure, that Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, excommunicated in 2006 and then discharged from the clerical state in 2009 [official document, WHO] …

.

… Emmanuel Milingo was born in 1930 Zambia, African country where true evangelization - after a few sporadic attempts only in the nineteenth century in a few locations at the hands of small groups of missionaries -, It starts only after 1915. He received the baptism in 1942 the age of twelve and priestly ordination in 1958 at the age of 28 year old. In 1959, just 39 year old, He is elected Archbishop of Lusaka, Capital of Zambia. He received episcopal consecration by Pope Paul VI, who he had wanted bishop and who greeted him as the youngest bishop in the entire African Continent. This timeline does not need comments, because the apotheosis imprudence is enclosed all the dates, which just add that the apostolic vicariates established around the 1915 Zambia, They have only been elevated to diocese between the 1959 and the 1976. Emmanuel Milingo was the first native archbishop of the Archdiocese of Lusaka, his predecessors were two appointed Polish Jesuit missionary bishops holders and placed at the head of the Apostolic Vicariate: Bruno from Wolnik 1927 to the 1950; Adam gave Kozłowiecki 1955 to the 1969. The latter, First he cultivated and then pointed to Paul VI, the young Emmanuel Milingo as a figure of Episcopal profile. In the consistory of 21 February 1998 Adam Kozłowiecki was made a cardinal by the Holy Father John Paul II, while Emmanuel Milingo, for its problematic not sustainable on site, He had already been forced to give up the government of his diocese and called to Rome in 1983. Fifteen years before the mentor Emmanuel Milingo was created cardinal for his missionary and pastoral merits - merits to which you could add a concept in vogue in the Society of Jesus, or the “ability to discern” —, he had already given all the problems worse, until his grotesque participation as a guest singer at the Italian Song Festival in San Remo 1997, to follow with its entry into a sect, his sham marriage with a Korean Lady, his act of apostasy from the faith and of schism from the Catholic Church. At the concrete evidence of Emmanuel Milingo facts he has not done anything to miss, however, it remains unanswered the key question: those who occasionally helps with its own light, emotional and imaginative recklessness the birth and development of similar “monsters”, in our Church in which Caesar is never wrong and Caesar's wife is always and penalty above any suspicion?

.

What were the results of certain pastoral choices? It was, unfortunately, that many bishops of these countries just evangelized, in fact they behaved as the great tribal leaders, but above all they had always at groups of young service nuns belonging to the myriad of congregations of diocesan right arose like mushrooms during the whole of Africa; and all with the same original and strange charisma: assist bishops and priests. On the other hand, in a socio-cultural context in which today priestly celibacy, but especially chastity linked to it, it is not easy to penetrate, it was necessary to collect, for bishops and for priests, of domestic sexual so clean, so to speak, avoiding, if anything, that the priests leave pregnant girls from village to village. And what happened to practice, If the nun became pregnant? If it was not had an abortion - what unfortunately happened several times -, at that point the nun ended thrown out by the community, and the priest sent instead to study in Rome at the Congregation expenses de propaganda fide.

.

Since the anthropological wolf He loses his hair but not the vice, here in 2008, the four corners of the large refectory of the Roman Collegio San Pietro next to the Pontifical Urban University, appear signs that warn: "It is forbidden to the priests pick up the nuns in their rooms'. Signs that were read by dozens of priests, including two today, more than a decade away, They have become bishops, one of an African diocese, one of a missionary diocese of Latin America; were in fact the ones who, to inform me of these signs posted by the rector of the college and to make me see the images themselves photographed.

.

While in the prime of New Pentecost the houses of religious institutes were emptied during the seventies, while many novitiates were now deserted and shortly thereafter, the nuns of old Europe would have to begin to come to terms with age, here is that their superiors general farsighted decided together with their tips to open missions in several African and Asian countries. And in the late seventies and early eighties he began: the shameless and somewhat immoral ways recruitment drive we might in some ways be compared to a real It is black.

.

But we have to prudently fly on how to treat and difficult to put on the right line certain African youth, culturally refractory even the most basic forms of discipline are the backbone of community life in religious communities, because addressing certain issues would stand promptly in response a polyphonic chorus of souls politically correct to begin the solemn hymn: At racist, the racist! And we do not talk about what happened in certain religious communities when they are ready rather than Brazilian groups, with elderly nuns who prayed for the grace of a good death fast, or at least the grace to remain deaf and blind as soon as possible, ond'evitar of attending some havoc.

.

This manovalanza acquired in such shopping campaigns to prevent the extinction of certain congregations, although no time, almost always it has also been particularly expensive, with implications far from clean. Many of these congregations, the acquisition of certain religious, They have paid and are continuing to pay with the economic maintenance of all the families of the nuns. To this are then added to the depredations of the sisters themselves, They just could have seized money from the speakers or the resources of religious communities, to send to their relatives in their countries of origin. Repeatedly, these sisters, always at the expense of the community they have brought their brothers and sisters in Europe, forcing the congregation to provide for their accommodation, including that of brothers and nephews anything but willing to work, because, in some African countries and cultures, to work is the woman, not the man. It's here, to prevent the polyphonic choir of souls politically correct ready to sing the praises At racist, the racist! Part, steps to the complaint, it is good to keep quiet on the nationality of some of these African men, allergic to such point to the work that, if one day encounter the person who invented the job, would not hesitate to kill barrel. I refer of course to those who, although not to work, They prefer much more to bring their wives and their daughters into prostitution on the streets of our cities, Finally exercising their job: pull his pocket money then when they go to take them back at the end of their service.

.

After the wave of African and Brazilian, It has come below that of Indian. In that case we met several times before really young pretty girls. And when a very beautiful European girl became a nun, This was almost always a sign of a particular vocation and solid, because if he wanted, He would have pleased and happy life when you choose the best husband that she could choose, because it has always, female beauty, It is an asset that can produce excellent weddings.

.

The recruitment drive indiana It does not however take into account one thing, or rather he did not want to take them into account: in most parts of India, if a family does not have the money necessary to constitute a dowry to his daughter, this, It was also a pearl of rare beauty, can not marry. And girls who can not get married, often they choose between two different trades: be prostitutes in Calcutta, or to the nuns. And between the two choices, Many rightly choose the second option.

.

The superiors general of the congregations who have done shopping campaigns in India, If they want to tell us what happened, those girls so beautiful but so poor, free for this wedding dowry, when they arrived nuns in Italy? Well, given that most priests are liars only the nuns, knowing that such a question would remain unanswered or otherwise be processed with a response of all false, the truth will be better for you to narrate I: most of these beautiful girls, arrived in Italy or other European countries, shortly after they found a man that if he married is treating them as authentic queens. Indeed, for the Italian man, and in general for European men, a young woman, beautiful and above all with the femininity now-lost many of our tomboys women only able to place themselves in a professional and social competition with men, is a wealth that is priceless. That's where many of the beautiful girls are over, arrived in Italy as nuns, in response to shopping campaigns dying from many religious congregations who are exhaling their last breaths through New Pentecost.

.

SOON we will witness the BIGGEST SALE OF THE RELIGIOUS HERITAGE

.

Many religious congregations have large real estate portfolios. Numerous possess great stable and of great historical and artistic value, They possess other large buildings that were once kindergartens, schools, education institutions and colleges. Turning to the only Roma, It is visible for all to see that already many of these buildings have been transformed into shelters or hotels, other leased or sold to private. Of course, and especially coming from the historic centers of large cities, it will not be possible to convert all these facilities in hotels or in prestigious locations representative offices of private companies or freelancers with the parcels to six zeros. Therefore, Most of these assets, They are intended to be sold off in a short time. So, shortly, We witness the most colossal sellout of religious Real Estate. Maybe, businessmen and various vultures, They have already done their accounts, or maybe, with cold lucidity, They have already done the project to divide the pie among various real estate companies and groups of individuals and wealthy businessmen.

.

To this figure, or if you prefer at this tragic chronicle of death foretold, unite all the complications arising from nefarious shopping campaigns. Example: There are religious congregations who for many decades, if not centuries, we are dedicated to childhood education or the management of secondary schools are characterized by the high quality of training. These institutions, for greater, They were holding up thanks to the nuns who were all of them teachers; to be fair, They were also some of great teachers and high level. During the New Pentecost, the Holy Spirit, instead fill vocations novitiates, But it seems that for inscrutable mystery of grace has emptied them, while in, the nuns, over time grew old. Thanks to recruitment drive several congregations have managed to survive by acquiring a number of African and Indian nuns, which, however,, far from graduates and far from perfectly juggle in the Italian language, They had little training school and they could not speak the Italian language, So imagine if you could replace their older sisters in school education. A quel point, if it was possible, the institute was changed into a hotel in which today, a group of young African and Indian nuns, do the maids, while the few surviving old Italian will step forward to run and manage as long as they will live as long or will the whole administration. Question: what's going to happen, When elderly Italian nuns die and these institutions, with related assets, They will end up in the hands of the fruit of the wicked recruitment drive? Because tomorrow, the so-called "proprietary completely", They will be groups of foreign Sisters of low culture, without proper instruction, with some knowledge of the Italian language and so to follow.

.

Given that the current nuns have always tried to stay away, as I believe it is good to stay away from the corpses put in the morgue refrigerator cells awaiting you some free place for their burial in the cemetery overcrowded, in my own priestly ministry and pastoral experience I can say that I have known in Italy only a handful of African and Asian sisters with deep training and professional skills. For instance: I remember some Indian sisters in one of the best clinics in Rome, owned and run by the congregation of these religious, are professional nurses who all surgeons operating in that structure always try to get as close to the operating room assistants, because they are of an extraordinary talent. But we must note that these Indian nuns are native state of Kerala, where the Christian culture is very ancient and where that particular church boasts its apostolic foundation, occurred in the year 52 D.C.. Apostle Thomas to work. And for culture and ancient Christian tradition, religious Kerala are totally different from those of other religious region of India which are vegetarian and do not eat meat for fear of being able to feed some of their ancestor reincarnated as a cow or a calf. Also in Rome, I met an outstanding Filipino nun, Today almost seventy, arrived in Italy just nineteen years of age, who for years he was a teacher and principal of a middle school run by his religious congregation. In addition to his hard work and for her extraordinary capacity for work, this religious speaks Italian as a true native speaker, he received at the time the degree in letters and has been for nearly forty years a very good teacher and then principal of the school teaching. Even in this case, but, we're talking about a woman born in the Philippines, where Catholicism was not brought a few decades ago, but it has a history of more than five hundred years, however it characterized by a Catholic population particularly linked to the Christian faith and deeply devoted to Rome. Different story but completely analogous to that of the Philippine nun, that of a Congolese nun who juggles a perfect Italian and speaks English beautifully, French and Spanish. This religion of Congolese origin comes from an old family being Catholic for generations and that he decided to become a nun when, with a scholarship, He came little more than eighteen years in Rome to carry out their university studies, after studying for four years at the Italian High School in his hometown, He is having planned her parents to send her to study in the European metropolis which they consider the great world capital of Christendom. And here we note that the evangelization of Congo got underway in the late fifteenth century, while the early seventeenth century, the Jesuits established in that country the institution of the Holy Savior, that will train for years to follow the classes Congolese leaders, while in the mid-seventeenth century came the Capuchin Friars Minor, which he was instead given the task to educate and assist the local clergy in the erection of parishes.

.

Subject to the exceptions and without fear that the polyphonic choir of political correctness gives startup hymn At racist, the racist! The products of these shopping campaigns, in addition to the large number of Indian sisters landed the religious life because without dowries and thus the fundamental means to marry, was the introduction in many religious congregations of many Sisters from various African countries recently evangelized, become Christian by teenagers, lack a deep Christian formation and without adequate religious formation due to their own lack of Christian education, steeped in animism, He is suffering from quite a few superstitions and in fact tied to ancestral cults AGAIN. When old Italian nuns who now govern the day their lives with his teeth, and on the other they continue to hold and manage these congregations, will fail, what will happen to these institutions, including their assets often substantial sums, when everything will be in the hands of the products of unhappy campaign purchases?

.

It WAS BETTER IN PERIOD BEFORE THE COUNCIL OF TRENT MONASTERI WHEN MANY WERE THE AUTHENTIC brothels

.

The fruits produced by New Pentecost, or as others say "to input that air spring in the closets too long closed the Holy Church of God", They are those that we can see: are fruits that have produced a religious crisis in women's institutions as he had never seen before. After all we have planted a tree that was to be the most beautiful and lush garden, and although in fact it is not, there are those who declares him to be, throwing all the lightning and thunderbolts ostracism towards anyone who dares to indicate that the tree is ugly and sick. Yet the Holy Gospel, through the words of Christ the Lord, It teaches us how to recognize trees:

.

"No good tree bears bad fruit, nor a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is known by its own fruit: They do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from brambles. The good person out of the good from the good treasure of his heart; and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil, For the mouth speaks out of the abundance of the heart " [LC 6, 43-45].

.

We should therefore ask ourselves: If the tree has grown crooked and the fruits from it data have died before they even sprout, it may be that both the plant it has in it grow, something did not go the right way?

.

Vatican II was a council of the Church, to be exact XXI, was neither a super-council or the council of councils. But above, as he explained the Venerable Pope Benedict XVI, Vatican II can not be turned into a kind of superdogma. This concept was taken up by the Supreme Pontiff 14 February 2013, three days after making withdrawal from the holy throne. In his speech to the Roman clergy, Benedict XVI clearly admits that rages in the Church a serious crisis of doctrinal and moral order, attributing it to both the para-council celebrated by theologians on the columns of the newspapers, both post-conciliar:

.

«[…] We know how this Council of media It is accessible to all. Therefore, This was the dominant one, more efficient, and it has created many disasters, many problems, really so much misery: seminars closed, convents closed, liturgy banal ... and the true Council has struggled to materialize, to be realized; the virtual council was stronger than the real Council […]» [full text, WHO].

.

In the mid-sixties it was announced the arrival of new springtime of the Church, the proof of the facts we are instead mired in one of the worst winters in Siberia, or as I wrote in my article two years ago: we are the new Roman Empire. [see text WHO].

.

As I explained during my writing, after the Council of Trent, we have seen a great revival of the Church together with great missionary activity, all placed in the history of the sixteenth century was a century of great reformers and great Saints. Even despite, The Council of Trent did not DeBello all the malpractices, and several centuries away many of its fundamental rules were not yet applied everywhere, or were only partially applied.

.

The products posthumously to the Second Vatican Council are now under the eyes of all: half a century by what some suggest as the largest Church Council, or the council of the councils, the Church is facing a crisis of doctrine, moral and spiritual before which it is really hard to find historical precedents, because it is a situation of a crisis entirely new. In conclusion, therefore, with the initial paradigm of as direct Stolta who claimed: "Know we can not go back to the dark times of the Council of Trent!», as a last conclusive answer I think I can replicate that in terms of women's religious life, perhaps it would be better to go back to the period before the Council of Trent, when many monasteries were reduced to authentic brothels. Do not forget that in them, in addition to become nuns such compulsion, there were also Sante that as good wheat lived side by side with the weeds [cf. Mt 13, 27-30], because as the Apostle teaches Beato: "Where sin increased, abounded grace » [RM 5, 20]. And the end is worth reiterating that the great reformer and Santa Teresa of Avila was born in this kind of dissolute populated monasteries of nuns, becoming what it has become and producing the fruit that produced.

.

Today this is not possible, because we are no longer talking about wheat and weeds that live together and which should be left together to avoid the risk of destroying even a single ear of good wheat; Today we are facing the corpse of women religious place inside the refrigerated morgue to prevent it from decomposing. And the state of grace, as known, abounds also and above all in the worst sin, but on living bodies, not on the dead bodies. But no one can pronounce it on a corpse formula: "I baptize you…», or "I absolve you from your sins", less so you can give the Holy Eucharist in the mouth of a dead saying the inanimate corpse "The Body of Christ".

.

But this, the as direct Stolta with the crown in the wind and the half-leg skirt, abbeveratasi the post-council created by the para-council, He does not know, like all people who live reckless and irresponsible with the idea of ​​a spring under the freezing winter of freezing temperatures of Siberia. Because the trees, beautiful and lush, they are for the fruits that give, not for the fruits but not given to us in any case imagined. Faith is not based on ideological emotions but on facts, for as sure what he preached one of the great teachers of the school, Sant'Anselmo d'Aosta: faith seeking understanding, Faith seeking understanding [Faith requires the reason, the reason requires faith]. Fantasy and Illusion, are not fundamental elements of our faith, but elements of destruction of faith, because removing the great light of reason that produces the works and that's wonderful gift of grace of the Holy Spirit, then comes to life a pseudo Christianity based on the sentimental and sull'emotivo. And so, you pass from Christianity to neo-paganism, Gnosticism, if not worse: atheism. In fact, "faith, if it has no works, He is dead in itself […] Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith " [Ge 2 1, 17-18]. Here is the fundamental question of which many terrible, too many, must make God seriously: what were the fruits of the work and what kind of faith have produced? In fact these fruits that we will be recognized and then judged by God, because "wisdom is vindicated by her works" [Mt 11, 19].

10 thoughts on "The paradigm of “as direct Stolta”: from the fifteenth century monasteries reduced to brothels to the twenty-first century infertility. The rejection of reality creates the decadence that leads to death. We can say that in religious life for women all went well after Vatican II ?

  1. Praised be Jesus Christ! Dearest Father Ariel, the reading of his writings imprinted in my day a single charge. She has the ability to use chains represented by the problems of our beloved church as if they were garlands of flowers… May the Lord bless you and protect you in every step.
    A hug in Jesus and Mary.
    Silvia

  2. excellent analysis… I experienced similar things before, without notice and explanations, They hunted by a Benedictine monastery

  3. dear father Ariel

    I would ask the Vatican Council 2 c was a modernist component that influenced the conciliar documents? c was a break with tradition or not?given the risultalti it seems to you ,does not believe?

  4. As you can be contrary to his considerations?. The thing I find appalling is that I do not sense any awareness of the drama which she exhibits traits saddest.

  5. Dear don Ariel, allow me a few comments:
    1. Crawford Prostitute, more than the sins of the clergy, not referring to the fact that the Church, chaste by definition, He goes in search of sinners almost like a harlot, although obviously it does to save them?
    2. What about the Pauline Sisters, who see themselves as liturgists and they say that during the Consecration must stand up because we are children of God? Do you ever argue with these people?
    3. At the end of the nineties I met some African students at pontifical universities. There were priests. Just knew some Italian girl, They stretched out their hands or at least made comments on the behind. A Congolese priest said that Americans were bad and dictatorial regimes in Angola and the like because they were good socialists.
    4. Years ago some newspapers reported the news of an Italian who had his dream of love with an Indian girl known as a nun here in Italy; to separate it had moved from convent to convent secretly but he had chased and eventually they realized their alleged “right”. At the time the news irritated me, but now I realize that there is…

  6. Hello
