Feminist video of little girls highly offensive [graphic warning]

[Warning: graphic language]


This should be hard to watch for decent people- especially decent Catholic and all Christian parents.

This is a video promotion to sell liberal/LBGT/feminist/gaylove/equality t-shirts using little girls dropping the f-bomb and other vile language.





Who are these vile people?
They are "FCKH8.COM"...


 What does the mainline entertainment media think of this offensive video?  They don't find these little girls yelling obscenities offensive, oh no.  They agree with the video that the words "inequality" is what is offensive.

EOnline states:

 Warning: What you hear in this video may shock you.But we're not talking about the fact that these little girls (ages 6 to 13) are swearing like sailors. We're talking about the phrases they are using regarding gender inequality.
In a video produced by FCKH8.com starring the "Potty-Mouthed Princesses,"
young girls all dolled up in pastel gowns drop F-bombs to remind everyone that society shouldn't be offended by curse words; we should be offended by the fact that women are still paid 23 percent less than men in the work force and the fact that one in five women is sexually assaulted or raped. 

At least the readers of EOnline showed they have a brain.  See their comments...

Why isn't this child abuse?

Earlier this year, a swearing toddler was taken into Child Protective Services because of a video made and posted on Facebook of the child repeating profanities and the adults around him laughing.

This was enough to send in Child Protective Services to take the toddler and the other children from the home.

 A Nebraska toddler who repeated a slew of profanities in an online video has been taken into child protective custody, Omaha police said Wednesday.
While authorities found nothing criminal in the video, officials from the Omaha police's Child Victim Unit and the Nebraska Child Protective Services took the infant and three other children into custody on Wednesday, the police department said on its Facebook page.
In the "Potty Mouth Princesses" video these children are being used (with their parents full support) to use horrible profanity all in the name of "FEMINISM".  I was asking myself "What were their parents thinking to allow their daughters to do such a horrible thing?"... the answer is they aren't really 'parents'.  This isn't parenting a child.  This is manipulating, corrupting and using a child.  It's child abuse, though I doubt our secular society will see it that way.

Tragic.  These poor little girls.  What monsters they have for 'parents'.

For a Catholic view of feminism how it should be, I suggest reading Pope Benedict's "Holy Women".



In Christ,


Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

Holy Spirit thwarts Progressive Pope

To be blunt I don’t like anything Pope Francis said in his final speech of the Synod (more below).  I believe (as Cardinal Burke said) Pope Francis is harming the Catholic Faith*.  Yes, I know Burke was talking about the Pope not setting the record straight and allowing progressive views to grow and spread through the media- but isn’t that EXACTLY what Pope Francis has done all along? [Holy Week washing Muslim women’s feet, ‘who am I to judge’, etc]

Pope Francis IS a progressive Catholic.  There can be no question about that after all his interviews and off the cuff comments.  This Synod was a progressive attempt to change the Church.  At first I believe progressives thought they had it in the bag- hence the “working document” about welcoming gay couples in mortal sin because they have “gifts” to offer the Church.  They seemed completely stupefied by the large outcry heard around the world. These people don't know their own Faith or the Saints who kept and taught the faith.
“If one yields ground on any single point of Catholic doctrine, one will later have to yield later in another, and again in another, and so on until such surrenders come to be something normal and acceptable. And when one gets used to rejecting dogma bit by bit, the final result will be the repudiation of it altogether.” –St. Vincent of Lerins

If anyone thinks Pope Francis wasn’t completely behind this progressive push, you’re fooling yourselves.  Everything he’s done since day one has pointed to that “working document” so adored and fawned over by progressives.

What he didn’t expect was the complete spanking he got for his efforts.
 
Pope Francis during heated Synod discussion.
Church Militant TV’s Michael Voris says it’s because faithful Catholics around the world heard Catholic media reporting these events as they happened and they rightly protested what was going on.  

I see it differently. 

The gates of hell will not prevail” against Christ’s Holy Catholic Church. Sure faithful Catholic media and laity voiced their unhappiness and anger at what was going on, but it was the Holy Spirit who stopped Pope Francis and his progressive gang in their tracks. 

They [progressives] can waste all their efforts TRYING to change doctrine, but it won’t happen.  What they WILL do, is lead people to Hell with their heretical beliefs and THAT is what angers me.

“What shall a Catholic do if some portion of the Church detaches itself from communion of the universal Faith? What other choice can he make if some new contagion attempts to poison, no longer a small part of the Church, but the whole Church at once, then his great concern will be to attach himself to antiquity (Tradition) which can no longer be led astray by any lying novelty.” –St. Vincent of Lerins

I completely trust the Holy Spirit to protect the Church.  Pope Francis cannot destroy Her or change Her, but Pope Francis [and other progressive clergy] CAN be the Piped Piper leading ignorant people into heresy and subsequently Hell.  That is what faithful devout orthodox Catholics have to fight against.  We have to help save people from misleading 'off the cuff' comments and bold heresy- even from our own clergy.

“The Church of the Lord is built upon the rock of the apostles among so many dangers in the world; it therefore remains unmoved. The Church's foundation is unshakable and firm against assaults of the raging sea. Waves lash at the Church but do not shatter it. Although the elements of this world constantly beat upon the Church with crashing sounds, the Church possesses the safest harbor of salvation for all in distress.” – St. Ambrose of Milan

Back to Pope Francis’ final speech … guess he didn’t like the smack down, because he (at least in my opinion) struck back at all the Catholics who dared oppose the progressive agenda he had so hoped would be accepted.



 - One, a temptation to hostile inflexibility, that is, wanting to close oneself within the written word, (the letter) and not allowing oneself to be surprised by God, by the God of surprises, (the spirit); within the law, within the certitude of what we know and not of what we still need to learn and to achieve. From the time of Christ, it is the temptation of the zealous, of the scrupulous, of the solicitous and of the so-called – today – “traditionalists” and also of the intellectuals.

He just had to slap traditional Catholics across the face (again) didn’t he?

 - The temptation to a destructive tendency to goodness [it. buonismo], that in the name of a deceptive mercy binds the wounds without first curing them and treating them; that treats the symptoms and not the causes and the roots. It is the temptation of the “do-gooders,” of the fearful, and also of the so-called “progressives and liberals.”


Guess traditionalist are the “fearful” “do-gooders” ignoring the cause and root of the wounds in the Church.  Those “wounds” are of course caused by telling people what sin is and that it must be confessed before Holy Communion.  And the “wounds” of telling homosexuals they can’t get ‘married’ because it’s a mortal sin.  Pope Francis believes to heal the ‘causes and roots’ of these wounds we need to shut up about gay ‘marriage’ and abortion etc.  His idea of “curing them” is leaving them ignorant and in a state of mortal sin.


 - The temptation to transform stones into bread to break the long, heavy, and painful fast (cf. Lk 4:1-4); and also to transform the bread into a stone and cast it against the sinners, the weak, and the sick (cf Jn 8:7), that is, to transform it into unbearable burdens (Lk 11:46)


What Pope Francis calls “unbearable burdens” is what the rest of us call “picking up our crosses and following Christ”.  Christ didn’t promise anyone life would be easy- Mary, sinless Mother of God suffered pain in this life (Luke 2:34-35) why shouldn’t the rest of us?  No one is casting stones at sinners, but we are telling them to REPENT and sin no more because that is what Jesus taught us to do.  That is the key: repenting.  If the Church doesn’t tell people what sin is, how can sinner’s repent?  The Church is COMMANDED by Jesus to teach the FULL Truth to all people so that they might be saved (Matthew 28:19-20). That is the mission of the Church.  That is how wounds are healed.


 - The temptation to come down off the Cross, to please the people, and not stay there, in order to fulfil the will of the Father; to bow down to a worldly spirit instead of purifying it and bending it to the Spirit of God.

He must have choked on that one.  Continually we see Pope Francis and progressive Catholic clergy attempting to 'bow down to worldly spirit" by watering down the Faith and telling Catholics to shut up about abortion and gay marriage. Rather worry about the worst crisis in the world- youth unemployment and lonely elderly people.  Ahuh.  Last I checked those weren't mortal sins that send a person to Hell.  But what progressive is worried about the souls of people?  None.  They are worried about being welcoming, not offending and finding the "gifts" in homosexual relationships!


 - The temptation to neglect the “depositum fidei” [the deposit of faith], not thinking of themselves as guardians but as owners or masters [of it]; or, on the other hand, the temptation to neglect reality, making use of meticulous language and a language of smoothing to say so many things and to say nothing! They call them “byzantinisms,” I think, these things…"


If ANYONE is tempting to “neglect the depositum fidei [deposit of faith]" its progressive clergy.  They don’t want to be guardians of the faith, they want to change the faith- just like Martin Luther before them.

And another slap to devout orthodox Catholics with “…on the other hand, the temptation to neglect reality, making use of meticulous language and a language of smoothing to say so many things and to say nothing!”  Clearly, traditional Catholics to Pope Francis’ mind are “neglecting reality” because we don’t believe the MORTAL SIN of homosexual relationships are a “gift” to the Church.

“It is an error to believe that Christ did not teach a determined body of doctrine applicable to all times and to all men, but rather that He inaugurated a religious movement adapted, or to be adapted, to different times and different places.”–Pope St. Pius X

This Synod has only reaffirmed my already none to favorable views of our current Pope.  I don’t trust Pope Francis and I don’t like him.  I wanted/want to trust him, like him and love him like I did Pope Benedict before him, but the honest truth is I don’t- and I probably never will.  I’ve accepted that.  I also accept Pope Francis 100% as our current pope.   God (for His own reasons) has allowed Pope Francis to be pope, I accept it.  Let’s remember, God also allowed such popes as Alexander VI to hold the papal office for a time.  Just because you’re pope doesn’t mean you’re a good one or that the faithful will love you. 

“Given the breakdown in family life, the wholesale attack on innocent and defenseless human lives, and the violation of the integrity of the union of marriage in our society, the call to the martyrdom of witness is ever more urgent.” –Cardinal Raymond Burke

Many Catholics are rightly pointing their fingers at progressive Bishops/Cardinals who pushed their liberal agenda’s at the Synod.  Like Cardinal Kasper, who is about as Catholic as my dead dog.  I don’t like Kasper, not because he’s liberal, but because he’s a heretic.  He wishes (and is attempting) to change the Church.  Kasper is a closet protestant- he doesn’t love the Church as She is, he wants to change her to be more Protestant.  Then he will love Her.  Along the way, his heretical beliefs are destroying the weak faith held by many Catholics.  Catholics who don’t properly know their faith.  He is putting his heretical ideas into the heads of Catholics who sadly, will follow him and his theology away from the Church.

Kasper is today’s Martin Luther.  Only instead of opposing the pope, he's working with him to push a progressive agenda that is in direct opposition to Church teaching.

And sadly… Kasper has Pope Francis patting him on the back all the way for months now.  Encouraging Kasper to continue spreading heretical beliefs.  This is tragic. 


Not a single word of public correction has been given to Kasper for all the misleading and heretical views Kasper has PUBLICLY made before, during or after the Synod. Instead we get the above.  That’s wrong.

"Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them." -Pope St. Felix III

 "If the faith is in imminent peril, prelates ought to be accused by their subjects, even in public." -St. Thomas Aquinas

 "According to their knowledge, competence and prestige which they possess, [the Christian faithful] have the right and even at the times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful"- Canon Law 212 Section 3


In Christ,

*Yes [to answer the emails on this], I know Church Militant TV took down the video about Cardinal Burke’s comment that “Pope Francis is harming the Church”.  Why was the video taken down?  I have no idea. Perhaps Burke requested it?  Perhaps Voris saw the video as harming the faithful in some way?  Or perhaps it was simply to controversial, I honestly don’t know and don’t really care.  I saw the video and I agree with Cardinal Burke- though I go much further in my belief that Pope Francis has been damaging the Church since his first Holy Week- that is my opinion and it hasn’t changed.

Has Michael Voris finally had it with Pope Francis?

Several Catholic media outlets and bloggers are wondering if Michael Voris is finally ready to admit we have a problem and its name is Pope Francis.

Over at “Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II” and “Mundabor’s Blog” the topic of Voris "finally seeing the light" is being discussed after a recent breaking news video from Voris in Rome.



From listening to Voris for years (Vortex+teaching videos) I personally believe Voris was as unhappy with Pope Francis as the rest of us from at least Holy Week [Voris has been VERY outspoken against women feet washing etc].  I’ve never spoken to Voris personally, so this is just my personal opinion from what I know of him through the Internet.               
                              
What people have to know is that deciding to NOT publicly call out a pope is NOT the same as supporting all a pope says or does.  The message (months back) posted on Church Militant's website was clear.  Voris would not publicly rip apart the Pope, as he does with other Catholic clergy.  That was HIS line in the sand.  People need to respect him for that. 

How much HARDER it must be for him to keep his mouth shut if he feels as so many do about Pope Francis? 

I wouldn't put myself in that position of suffering (and believe me it WOULD be suffering for ME to keep my mouth shut!), but Michael did and I believe it was because he didn't want to cause panic among the faithful.  [Previous post I wrote on this HERE]

If HE, Michael Voris, caused wide spread panic through his Church Militant TV apostolate and he ended up being wrong, that would fall on him and he knows it.  Voris is not an idiot.  He is concerned not only with his own soul but the souls of others. He knows he has the ears of thousands of people through the Internet and  he decided to use caution and drew a line in the sand for himself.  I respect that.  I have no such patience or self control when it comes to the Pope [or anyone else inside the Church] and for that *I* may well spend a very long, long time in purgatory. 

Voris has thus far shown MORE concern for the Catholic faithful that a great many of our own Bishops have and certainly many Catholic bloggers- myself included.

I don't believe Voris is happy with much of anything coming from the Vatican these days - how could ANY devout practicing Catholic be?  And perhaps one day Pope Francis will go 'too far' and Voris will call him out on it.  If that day comes, it will be over a MAJOR INDISPUTABLE BLASPHEMY done -which we might all see in 2017 with the "celebration" of heretic Martin Luther and how the Pope (be it Francis or another) participates in that blasphemy.  I don't think even Voris would hold back in such a situation.  Time will tell.

Voris' videos this week clearly show he is exhausted, not just physically but I believe exhausted in the way a soldier is after years of combat – weary, but in no way finished fighting the battle.


I hope his “Retreat at Sea” revitalizes him because the Catholic faithful need more Michael Voris’s – especially in times like these.



In Christ,

Porsche vs Sistine Chapel: There is no substitute


The disappointments never end for me with this Pope.


As if this weeks Synod reports weren't bad enough, Pope Francis has rented out the Sistine Chapel to Porsche.  

I guess anything for a buck goes these days- charity or not. It's one thing for visitors coming to see the wonders the Vatican has in its rich Catholic history (there is respect and awe in that)- quite another for a car manufacturer looking to promote its self under the false guise of 'charity'.  Greed, self promotion and using holy things for gain.  I have a problem with that, but Pope Francis clearly doesn't.



Anyone else have the scriptures of the money changers being driven out by Christ flash into their heads when you first heard this story?

Matthew 21:12-13New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)Jesus Cleanses the Temple 
 12 Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 He said to them, “It is written,
‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’;    but you are making it a den of robbers.”

Or maybe you were reminded of what helped make Porsche so famous in America during the 1980's?  Tom Cruise dancing in his underwear having sex with a prostitute and taking his parents Porsche for a joy ride?



Poor judgement rules again at the Vatican.  Is nothing sacred and off limits anymore?



Quote: "...the managing director of the Vatican Museums, Monsignor Paolo Nicolini, rejected suggestions the the chapel was available for rent.“The Sistine Chapel can never be rented because it is not a commercial place,” he told reporters on Thursday (Oct. 16)." [end quote]
Such hypocrisy.  The Sistine Chapel has just been bought and paid for on behalf of a commercial event that will give money to the Vatican for the use of the Sistine Chapel by Porsche - a car manufacturer.

Do they really believe their own spin on this?

*sigh*


In Christ,

The Gates of Hell will NOT prevail at the Synod...


So I haven’t been blogging much because I’ve been too busy pounding my head against a wall and fighting back the bile each time I read/hear about what is happening and coming out of the Synod.

Example:  Welcoming homosexual persons
"Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community: are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a fraternal space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a Church that offers them a welcoming home. Are our communities capable of providing that, accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony?The question of homosexuality leads to a serious reflection on how to elaborate realistic paths of affective growth and human and evangelical maturity integrating the sexual dimension: it appears therefore as an important educative challenge. The Church furthermore affirms that unions between people of the same sex cannot be considered on the same footing as matrimony between man and woman. Nor is it acceptable that pressure be brought to bear on pastors or that international bodies make financial aid dependent on the introduction of regulations inspired by gender ideology.Without denying the moral problems connected to homosexual unions it has to be noted that there are cases in which mutual aid to the point of sacrifice constitutes a precious support in the life of the partners. Furthermore, the Church pays special attention to the children who live with couples of the same sex, emphasizing that the needs and rights of the little ones must always be given priority."

Let’s be clear…and I don’t give a rats ass what Bishop says what, there are NO GIFTS OR QUALITIES homosexuals IN homosexual relationships have to offer ANYONE- inside or outside the Church.  None. Zip.  Nada. Zilch.  Period.

Mortal sin is NOT a "gift" its an eternal death sentence!

Quote (while fighting back bile): The Church furthermore affirms that unions between people of the same sex cannot be considered on the same footing as matrimony between man and woman.

Well I should freaking hope not!!  Since one is a MORTAL -YOUR GOING TO HELL SIN and the other is a Holy Sacrament!

This blathering blasphemous drivel is just that, blasphemous blather that has driveled out of the mouth of Satan himself through his willing pawns inside the Church.

Catechism 2396 Among the sins gravely contrary to chastity are masturbation, fornication, pornography, and homosexual practices.

Homosexual practices are grave sin- it doesn’t matter if the couple (or polygamous group) are “married” in the eyes of any government.  God does not put Himself under man’s laws, man is supposed to put himself under God’s laws IF he wishes to have eternal life with Christ. 

What can Catholics learn from any gay person in a homosexual sexual relationship? 

How to go to Hell.  

That is ALL you can learn from people who choose mortal sin over God.  Period.

Everyday my heart stands still in fear of what “Satan’s smoke inside the Church” is doing, and then I remind myself of Christ’s words…

Matthew 16:17-19 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
 
17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter,and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Don’t put your trust in ANY man (even those inside the Catholic Church if they reject/oppose or wish to change ANY of Her teachings), put all your trust in Christ.  Jesus promised the gates of hell would NOT prevail against His Holy Catholic Church and it won’t.  

"You cannot please both God and the world at the same time.  
They are utterly opposed to each other in their thoughts, their desires, 
and their actions."
-Saint John Vianney 


This is a test…and those who fail it might end up in eternal hell for their faithlessness. Stand firm in the true teaching of the Catholic faith and pray for the clergy leading people into heresy and mortal sin.

Catechism 2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, 141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
 Catholic teaching is perfectly clear...even when her priests are not.

Catechism 2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.


Stand strong against the devils in the Church (they are many), trust in Christ’s word and KNOW that the blasphemous drivel coming out of the Vatican is NOT dogma- it is NOT Church teaching.  It is progressive’s seeking to protestantize Christ’s Holy Catholic Church.  They will not suceed any more than Martin Luther did before them.

Perhaps this will be a Great Purging for our Holy Church? 

Instead of opening the doors wide to allow mortal sin to be redefined as a "gift" how about we open wide the doors and allow all those who reject the Faith to get the hell out?  Since when is heresy a special gift to be shared among the faithful?

It is ROT and if you allow it to remain it will spread and corrupt. 

1 Corinthians 5 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)  
Sexual Immorality Defiles the Church 
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not found even among pagans; for a man is living with his father’s wife. And you are arrogant! Should you not rather have mourned, so that he who has done this would have been removed from among you?For though absent in body, I am present in spirit; and as if present I have already pronounced judgment in the name of the Lord Jesus on the man who has done such a thing. When you are assembled, and my spirit is present with the power of our Lord Jesus, you are to hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
Your boasting is not a good thing. Do you not know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, as you really are unleavened. For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us celebrate the festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
 Sexual Immorality Must Be Judged
I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral persons— 10 not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since you would then need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother or sister who is sexually immoral or greedy, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber. Do not even eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging those outside? Is it not those who are inside that you are to judge? 13 God will judge those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.”

If nothing else this Synod should open the eyes of blind Catholics who stumble around in the dark clueless about the battle that is REALLY going on inside the Church.  Wake up Catholics!  Your eternal destination may well depend on your alertness.  

When (not ‘if’) the liberal progressive devils in the Church are defeated the media will wail and scream, while devout Catholics praise God for His defeat of yet another attack on Christ’s Church.  She is more than two thousand years old and this Synod will not stop Her or bring Her down.  It can’t.  

There will always be trials and tribulations for the righteous - it's what makes such great Saints.

 "Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to him.
 That is all the doing you have to worry about."
-Saint Jeanne de Chantal

FATHER BENEDICT J. GROESCHEL, DEVOTED RELIGIOUS AND PRIEST, DIES AT 81

Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, beloved priest and preacher, died on October 3, 2014, the vigil of the Feast of St. Francis, after complications with an ongoing illness. He was 81.
Fr. Benedict was a founder of the Community of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFR), a reform community started in 1987 by eight Capuchin Friars based in New York City. A priest and psychologist, he was director of Trinity Retreat House in Larchmont, New York, and also taught Pastoral Psychology for many years at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Dunwoodie. Fr. Benedict was a popular writer, preacher, retreat master, and evangelist on Catholic television. His greatest joy was serving the poor and underprivileged.  
Founder of St. Francis House and Good Counsel Homes, he also served as chaplain at Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry for 14 years. Always deeply concerned with the welfare of others, he tirelessly provided food, clothing, and assistance to people in need—people he always considered his friends.
Father Benedict is survived by his sister, Marjule Drury, sister Robin Groeschel, brother Gary Groeschel, nine nieces and nephews, 115 CFR brothers and priests, and 31sisters who were inspired by his authentic witness to religious life and devotion to Jesus and His Church. He was preceded by his brothers Edward and Mark. 
Wrote Fr. John Paul Ouellette, Community Servant, Franciscan Friars of the Renewal: “We are deeply saddened by the death of Fr. Benedict. He was an example to us all. His fidelity and service to the Church and commitment to our Franciscan way of life will have a tremendous impact for generations to come.”

Details for the wake and funeral will be forth coming.
