Fr. Fidenzio Volpi, OFM, Cap has suffered a severe stroke May 6, 2015

The man at the center of the storm surrounding the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, Fr. Fidenzio Volpi, OFM, Cap, has suffered an apparently severe stroke. Original reports indicated he had died, but apparently he is still alive but in grave condition.  Fr. Volpi was, of course, named Apostolic Administrator of the Franciscan Friars in 2013, and his time overseeing the order has been nothing if not controversial and upsetting to many faithful Catholics.  The news as follows via NLM:

“This morning news was circulated of the presumed death of Fr (Fidenzio) Volpi, reported to have happened yesterday after a stroke. It has been confirmed that Fr Fidenzio did suffer a stroke a few days ago, but the report of his death has been denied. Messa in Latino’s sources, persons close to the Capuchin, and very reliable, have confirmed to our editors that Fr Volpi is still alive, but in extremely serious condition. Let us pray for him.”

This report will be updated as events warrant.

Yes, I do pray for his recovery, and if he does recover, that he may perform his office with the FFIs in a quite different manner.  For now, I will stick to prayers for his recovery and that he have the time and ability to make a very good last Confession and receive Viaticum and Last Rites.  Should he die, I will pray for the repose of his soul.

Amen to all you wrote. And if he dies, may it be within the arms of Holy Mother Church.

I’m full of charity, but he deserves punishment for his outrageous treatment of the FFI.

Oh camper, you are so honest.

I will pray for him. It must be the season for strokes. My boss and a c-worker both suffered massive strokes last week. Please pray for Kevin and Terry’s recovery.
