At Rome, are holy men more frightening than devils?

Has Rome, the Eternal City, the Holy City, the city of Catholic Christianity, the open city, the city of “dolce vita” been transformed into a city of repression, curfew, degradation, where even praying becomes a crime?
This is the question that has been asked by all those who have become aware of the unfortunate and well-documented facts, but reported only on social media, thanks to the tireless effort of some bloggers and journalists, who wanted to give voice to those who do not have it, and for those have no longer a right to have it.
But let’s go in order.
Friar Alexis Bugnolo, Franciscan Hermit who made his canonical novitiate in 1992 by taking simple vows in 1993-1995, because of his love for St. Francis, chose in 1996 to observe the rule of St. Francis in the ancient way, without mitigation.
For several months now he has been going every evening at about 11:30 p.m. to pray in front of the closed door of the papal Archbasilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, known simply by the name of “La Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore” or the “Basilica Liberiana”: driven by his strong devotion to and inspiration by Our Lady, regardless of the questionable limits imposed by an incomprehensible and unmotivated curfew, which has lasted for more than a year now.
Faith and devotion have always defied every law, even putting their own lives at stake, so much so that Rome is also the city of Martyrs, the most representative of which is St. Peter.
According to his account, a good 16 months of constant and continuous prayer, of which everyone was aware and which the Police tolerated humanely and Christianly, knowing that a prayer in the open air would not have infected anyone.
It is true that from time to time some of the faithful, contravening the harsh law imposed and assuming all the risks involved in violating the norm, would stop to pray with Brother Alexis, and this continued until the night between April 30 and May 1.
Brother Alexis was there, as he was every evening, and had begun to recite his prayers in the company of some of the faithful, when a patrol of the City Police decided to intervene.
All lawful and in the norm — even the police have to do their duty, even when perhaps sent or commanded by someone who is annoyed that a friar can pray in the face of being charged with crimes of unimaginable danger.
The law is the law and while in the historic song by Fabrizio de Andrè “bocca di Rosa” (Rose’s mouth) the “Benemeriti” accompanied those who had broken the law, as told by the friar and some of the witnesses present, the treatment reserved by the representatives of the Order of Roma Capitale, seems to have been harsh and intimidating, so much so that six patrols and an ambulance intervened, all called, because afterthe friar was grabbed physically by the police on two occasions, he remained in great pain in the shoulder.
A long and meticulous story, which describes the entire phase that lasted until about 5.00 am, you can find it on all social networks where the Friar tells the facts, with great detail, to all those who wanted to interview him.
It would seem that what triggered all this was not the violation of curfew regulations, but even more trivially, the fact that the Friar did not wear a mask despite being in an open place, well spaced from the others, it seems that less than a dozen people were present, and in front of the churchyard of a Basilica, located in a large square.
Once released, it seems in the early hours of the morning, a tam-tam of news began to bounce on social media, in a strong way, as happens in these cases and that become increasingly frequent, amplified by the fact that this time the “criminal” was a hermit Friar.
We had already had documentation of parish priests interrupted “clumsily” by the Forces of Order, while they were officiating the Holy Mass, but certainly no one could expect that a Hermit Friar was not allowed to pray in front of a Church.
But Brother Alex Brugnolo does not fail in his duty to pray, so the next evening, not being able to pray in front of “his” Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, strangely kept dark outside and with the lights off, almost as if it could be a deterrent method, he moved to a church in the San Lorenzo area.
A prayer that gathered almost forty believers who, in spite of every disposition, wanted to testify their solidarity to the Friar for the violence suffered and to protest against the unfair disposition, as well as to express an act of faith, aware of the risks they could have run.
Are we perhaps returning to the origins of Christianity, when the faithful were forced to gather to pray in the Catacombs, of which Rome is full?
Is it really true, then, that Saints are scarier than Devils, because they bring people closer and unite them, contrary to what someone decided?

Alexis Bugnolo, to arrest him for the crime of not presenting an Italian document to certify his identity, even though the Police were well informed that he had lost it months before, and was denied a new one on account of being too poor to have a rental contract whereby he could declare a legal residence according to Italian civil law.

Br. Bugnolo you should have told the police that if they can pretend the mask works then they can also pretend that you are wearing one.
On the other hand they may not have the sense of humour or intelligence to understand the joke?
I was quite traumatised by the video of what happened to you Brother. It was very upsetting. Really you bore it all so well; being at peace enough to be able to even relay what happened to your friend at Ordo Militaris, was impressive to me. I am sure, to my shame probably, that I would have cried in re-telling of that traumatic experience, even if I bore it well on that night. You were right in pointing out how communist the actions were/are against people
Churches not open for worship,but open as vaccination centres .https://traditioninaction.org/RevolutionPhotos/A934-Vac.htm
GOD BLESS YOU and KEEP YOU SAFE, Brother Bugnolo.
May GOD and THE MOTHER OF GOD Who is also your MOTHER shine their blessings upon you, and be gracious to you, give you continued peace, joy, healing, and every beautiful blessing under heaven.

The shame of Italy – Friar manhandled for several hours for praying maskless in almost deserted Square in Rome in the early hours of 1st May 2021
The behaviour of your law enforcers in Italy reached a new low on the Feast of St Joseph The Worker, or as your commie government and Mayor of Rome would prefer, May Day celebration of Marxist Communist oppression of the people under the guise of “celebrating the Workers”.
Those of us with eyes to see know there is no pandemic, no excess death figures in any country over the last year, no need for masks, fake tests, no need for “vaccines” being used on millions of humans as guinea pigs, don’t protect against “Covid-19” and don’t prevent transmission even according to the pharmaceutical companies themselves who are peddling the “vaccines” to all our governments who are spending our taxes (of us the workers) while they decimate small business in favour of expanding the coffers of big business.
Shame on Italy
Shame on the Catholic Church for going along with your fraud
Shame on the “health” services lying about causes of death
Shame on the bought media
Shame on you!
You should be issuing an apology for how your law enforcers treated a Franciscan friar in sandals for breathing in fresh air (well as fresh as a city can provide) and breathing prayers out to God for your souls.
Are you going to stay silent and disgrace your country and your Eternal City of Rome?
EXCELLENT LETTER. God Bless your efforts.
PRAISE, HONOR, GLORY, and THANKS BE TO GOD and OUR HOLY MOTHER MARY for the hope and the promise of THE CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA, and THE TRIUMPH OF THE IMMACULATE HEART.
The enemies of GOD will be defeated.
