Two Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate slashed in Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore

Unrelated photo showing Friars with Pope.

Father Angelo Gaeta, and Father Adolfo Ralf were attacked by a man, their faces slashed by a broken bottle.  The man is described as deranged and reported to have said "The Church doesn't understand me."

Nothing was reported on whether or not he suffered from the same “crypto-lefebvrian and definitely traditionalist drift” which afflicted a segment of the Franciscan Friars under the direction Fr. Stefano Manelli.  The two friars who were attacked were among those who filed the original complaint against Fr. Manelli. 

The friars are recovering from the attack.
