New Commissar appointed over the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate

I saw at Corrispondenza Romana the news that a new Commissar has been appointed over the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.

The new Commissar (Apostolic Commissioner) is a canonist, Salesian Fr. Sabino Ardito.  Two assistants were also appointed, also canonists, a Cappuchin and a Jesuit.

The first, former, Commissar, Fr. Fidenzio Volpi died in June.

Let us pray that prudence and justice are applied in all judgments concerning the FFIs.

    If they are looking for an excellent canonist to sort this out then I nominate Dr. Edward Peters.

    My parish’s small TLM society has asked an FFI priest nearby to take over as chaplain once our priest-in-residence returns to Africa later this month. He is more than willing but must get permission first. Please pray for us.
