Vatican Take-Over of Convent Fails Again

An attempt to capture the Marradi Dominican Convent, Italy, by some Vatican officials, failed in the morning of January 10, OkMugello.it reports.

The Vatican wants to evict the two elderly sisters and one novice and close down the place.

However, the nuns refused to open the doors. The local population came out in their defence, among them former Marradi mayor, Paolo Bassetti, a cousin of Perugia Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, the president of the Italian Bishops.

The Vatican emissaries left without having achieved anything.

The worry is that the Vatican aims at taking out one of the sisters who is considered more fragile, hoping that afterwards it will be easier to remove the other two.

The one error in this story is that the citizens of the town allowed the Vatican officials leave without giving them a gift which would have necessitated that they visit the local medical center beforehand to see the wonderful advances of Italian medical science.

I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering.
Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions many vocations to the religious life.
Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth we may love and eternally thank you in heaven.

Isn't it telling that the only convents the Vatican seems to have its eye on are traditional and wear a traditional habit.

It's also the realty and assets, AgentRose Pope Francis kills three birds with one stone. New revenue, political favors when the land is sold to a crony, AND destroying a traditional convent.
AgentRose
Please offer up your sufferings for us. No one would believe this if they hadn't seen the photos and the story.
