Traditionalists under Vatican persecution
In December 2013, the Vatican increased the persecution of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (FFI). The FFI is a traditional religious order with convents in the whole world, which sticks to the Traditional Latin Mass and traditional catholic theological positions.
The intervention by the Vatican in the Franciscans of the Immaculate was precipitated by their increasing attachment to Traditional Catholic theological positions -- not just to the Traditional Latin Mass.1
Then in May 2014:
The Order of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate, known for its love for Tradition, has been placed under visitation by Cardinal Braz de Aviz, Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life.2 Basically, they are now being scrutinized by vatican representatives.
With the franciscan friars' visitation, it resulted in forced changes, restrictions on performing the valid Traditional Latin mass and later the requests by a number of priests to leave the order.3
Interestingly, ..."the Visitators told the nuns that they prayed too much, that they did too much penance..."4
Book of Truth prophecy: Those of you who will continue to perform the traditional Mass will be tormented until you agree to abandon it entirely. Many amongst your religious orders will betray you to the enemy behind your back.5
