About FromRome.Info

FROM ROME is a News and Editorial Media platform for Catholics who want to know what is really going on in the Church. We are the quintessential un-controlled journalistic Apostolate, with no ties to anyone in the Sacred Hierarchy to tell us what to print and what not to print. We believe every Catholic has the right to know the truth, and that the truth about what is going on and who our pastors really are is the the right of every Catholic. We uphold, profess and sustain the eternal Faith of Jesus Christ which has been handed down by the Apostles, defended by the Fathers, preached by the Saints and taught by the perennial Magisterium of the Church. That includes upholding the Laws of the Church. Hence, we profess allegiance and obedience to the only true Vicar of Jesus Christ, on Earth, Pope Benedict XVI.

We are a non-profit religious apostolate. The free advertisement we give to raise funds for humanitarian NGOs and other publishers are on account of our endorsement of their activities or media content.


FromRome.Info is run as an apostolate of the Ordo Militaris Catholicus, an international Association of Catholics dedicated to the defense of Christendom.

  1. Dear Brother Bugnolo:

    I am writing you about one of your translations, “The True Fatima Prayer.” The fact that the church’s version of this prayer is incorrect deeply troubles me. The wording of the prayer as it is now used in the rosary seems to call for universal salvation, whereas in fact Mary was calling us to pray for souls in purgatory, especially those who have no one else to pray for them. What can we do to correct this error? Who should be contacted?


  2. Simply start saying the correct version and whenever you lead the Rosary in public, first explain the error and teach the correct version to all present.


  3. Dear Brother,
    I’m sorry if this is not the correct place for a general question, but here goes: I would be most edified to hear your prayerful thoughts on the SSPX and Abp. Lefebvre’s “emergency” declaration. More and more I find myself unwittingly in agreement with his perception of his position as going up against a “modernist Rome” from whom he couldn’t expect justice or charity, and it’s troubling to think a society so thoroughly Catholic might not actually be in complete union with Rome.
    God bless you.


  4. Theologically speaking, you cannot be in schism if the reason for your taking a stand is to defend some part of the Deposit of the Faith or Tradition that is being attacked by a member of the hierarchy or a group, even large, of the same. St Athanasius, when he was one of 5 Bishops in the world who kept the Catholic Faith in the Divinity of Jesus was never a schismatic. It would be blasphemy to call him such. On the other hand, ordaining Bishops without having jurisdiction or claiming jurisdiction was a novelty in the Church, inasmuch as I understand and know Church history, because the episcopacy was instituted for the salvation of souls in a Diocese. The Archibshop seems to me to have suffered from the same problem as Cardinal Burke now suffers, namely the inability to call a heretic a heretic and to say that those canons of Church law which put such a man outside of the Church ipso facto and immediately apply. In these cases, a Catholic Bishop immediately visits such a diocese and calls the Clergy together who remain Catholic and seeks either the repentence of such a bishop or has the local clergy elect a worthy candidate to replace him. — In truth, the real schism lies in Popes and Bishops who refuse to punish heretics and to allow them to sacrilegiously and illicitly continue in their duties and hold offices in the Church. This is a horrible abomination and rape of Holy Mother Church. The fact that under the Code of Canon Law of 1917 and 1983 the Pope is supposed to take such action, does not absolve the Bishops from their duty, because when a higher superior fails and when the law does not foresee the circumstance, the lower superior has the right and duty to act. Canon Law today envisions that by expressly not abrogating ancient laws or customs which are not expressly re-integrated in the Code. That a public heretic be allowed to hold office is contrary to divine and apostolic law, therefore any Bishop has the right to act when a Pope or the Pope fails. — For this reason I think the Archbishop was not a schismatic, but did labor on some profound misconceptions of law and theology, which gave Modernism the chance to spread to the point it is today. — The point to remember is, a Bishop, as member of the College of the Apostles, even when he does not hold jurisdiction, because he is retired, retains a munus to rule, sanctify and preach in extreme circumstances of the apostasy of vast number of his brother bishops. For him to act in such cases is not schismatic, heretical or sedevacantist, IT IS HIS DIVINE RIGHT.


  5. There apparently was no little consternation on the matter of the meaning of the fatima rosary prayer. It was beginning to be commonly thought that the ending of the prayer referred to the poor souls in purgatory. Sister Lucy’s response was as follows:

    Your Excellency will understand how my own impression was that the final words of this prayer refer to souls in greatest danger of damnation, or those who are nearest to it.


  6. Brother, i copied the text from frere michel’s work, volume i, the chapter on the apparition of july 13:


    He says, unspecifically, that it’s from her memoirs which would then mean the earlier memoirs. Elsewhere (i believe in volume ii) he covers this with greater context. He did mention in a footnote (8) that there is an appendix on this, but i was unable to find it. i think that i know where to find the accounting of it in volume ii though. (i’ll keep looking for that and, if God says the same, i’ll get back to you with it)…

  7. Brother, here also is footnote number 10 (same link) which i somehow managed to overlook…

    (10) See the letter of Sister Lucy to Father Gonçalves, May 18, 1941: The last supplication has been applied to the souls in Purgatory, ‘ because it seems that the meaning of these last words were misunderstood; but I believe that Our Lady was referring to souls in the greatest danger of damnation. This continues to be my impression, and no doubt you will believe the same thing after having read the part of the secret I have written down, and knowing that Our Lady taught this prayer during the same apparition. ’ (Memorias e cartas, p. 443).


  8. Thanks for this. Well if it is certain she said the Portuguese equivalent of “little souls”, then she is certainly not referirng to all souls, but to the souls who have the humility to turn to God and seek salvation. So the popular version of the prayer is still wrong, and I think we should change it back. In English to say, “all poor souls” implies humility too, so long as we understand that in Sr Lucia’s mind it is referring to souls on earth.


  9. Dear Br. Bugnolo,

    Would you allow me to introduce myself to you? With the non-profit organization Mary’s Advocates, I work to reduce unilateral no-fault divorce and support those who are unjustly abandoned. In unilateral no-fault divorce, those who control the split of everything, view marriage obligations in a way that is diametrically opposed to the Christian and Catholic understanding.

    Would you let me know your e-mail address so I could send you a description of our resources with links, and add you to my private news list for press releases. If you are interested, I could add you to my newsletter thereafter.

    Sincerely Yours in Christ,

  10. Thank you for your introduction. I am a peniless Franciscan brother, so I can help you by prayer and by stating

    1) that VEL in Latin does not mean AND nor does it mean an exclusive OR, it means an inclusive OR. For example, if a mother sends her son to the market to buy VEL apples VEL pears VEL cheese VEL bread, he faithfully excecutes her will by buying all of these which are on sale. But if she leaves off the first VEL then he has to buy apples. I cannot cite you an authoritative source for this reading of VEL, but from having translated 9000 pages of Latin that is the only reading of it that works all the time. I suggest if you wish to have a source to find a professor of medieval logic who knows his latin and he will be able to cite you authorities which explain this better.
    2) Canon 1399 gives every bishop the right and authority to canonically penalize an adulterer for the scandal done by abandoning his spouse and children. But he has to be a Saint filled with charity and courage to do this. In my opinion, a Bishop should call every such person on the carpet to his office to reprimand him or her, as their Shepherd. But alas, since the Apostolic See has allowed dioceses to become too large, a Bishop does not have the time that would require. When Saint Anthony Marie Claret y Claret was Apostolic Legate to Cuba he reconciled 5000 marriages in the 18 months of his ministry, staying up late at night to speak with couples and ordering them in the Name of Jesus Christ to reconcile and remain together. He was so pleasing to God, that when He received the Eucharist his whole body glowed with light, and when it rained, the rain never fell on him. That shows you what God thinks about his holy work.


  11. Dear Br. Bugnolo,
    As you probably know the Catholic Church in the Vatican and in most corners of this world is promoting palliative care. This new sub-specialty in medicine is a very serious threat against humanity. Palliative medicine was developed and certified by the Big Death Collaborative including people funded by George Soros and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. I would like to report one piece of good news on this Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec 12, 2019). A National Alert last weekend from several organizations to expose the evils of palliative care and to ask that the Palliative Care and Hospice Training Education Act (S. 2080) known as PCHETA be removed from the Senate HELP Committee has been successful!!!. It was pulled from this morning’s schedule! However, they plan to bring it up again early next year. We ask for help in educating the public about palliative medicine as best we can in a few short weeks. Thank you for posting this. Do you have any suggestions? Comments?

  12. Dear Mrs. Wickaham, yes I know how evil pallitive care is. For when my mother, last year, was in her final days, the nurses did not want to do anything for her but kept lecturing us on pallative care. It is euthanasia with everything but the word euthanasia. Evil. Death devotion.


  13. Hello Br. Bugnolo,

    I’ve been suspicious for a while now that Pope Benedict may still be pope and Francis and anti-pope, and my wife even believed so more strongly than I despite my repeated attempts to tell her to give benefit of the doubt since we don’t really know. Anyhow, just this week I’ve come across the information on your blog and I am blown away.

    1 question. What advice would you give me. We attend mass at an FSSP parish and love our parish very much. We are very well fed and thank God for it every day. That being said, the Pope being prayed for in the canon is Pope Francis of course. If indeed Benedict is still Pope, then Francis is an anti-Pope, and in that case the canon is being prayed for an anti-Pope. Is there anything I should do about this? Must I really cease attending mass due to this?

    Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
