Monastic Politics and Roman Procedure free pdf Excerpt from Monastic Politics and Roman Procedure: A Clerical Dreyfus Case, With Facsimiles of Certain Letters From the Abbot Eugene Vachette of Melleray, France, and From Others This book does not deal even remotely with the Truths of Faith, nor does it prejudice the loyalty due from Catholics to the Pope. Its aim is especially to strike a blow against the abuse of a centralized system which enables officials and ecclesiastics in Rome to overrule unduly legitimate local authority in distant countries, and to show the necessity of having the aspirations and interests of other lands sufficiently represented and protected in the administrative government of the Church. The scene of the story is at Mount Melleray in Ireland, at New Melleray in Iowa, in the United States, at the General Chapter of the Order in France, and at Rome with the Sacred Congregation of Bishops and Regulars: in all these places it reveals a persecution that has lasted several years. The personal element seems to predominate to such an extent that it requires, perhaps, some explanation. But Father Mooney has never made this book personal, and if the narrative seems somewhat so, it is because his opponents compel him to recite in comprehensive detail the facts of the case. Indeed, it is only after a lengthened period of magnanimous patience that the story is given to the public for the first time. If Father Mooney was a marked man from the time he entered the Monastery at Mount Melleray, it was mainly because, apart from the Abbot, it was felt that he was the only one, willing and able, to defend the Laws and Constitution of the Cistercian Order. Of New Melleray, the author says: "The Monastery of New Melleray in America is an Irish institution, founded from and by Mount Melleray in Ireland, at the cost of many Irish lives and of much Irish labour, suffering and money. All the monks there are Irish and no Monastery in the Order has such rich possessions in lands as New Melleray. But a majority of French Abbots in the General Chapter set their hearts on getting this wealthy Monastery, with all its lands, for themselves, and for the monks of their own nationality. They had already passed a resolution in their General Chapter to take it from the Irish and give it to themselves." This resolution, being contrary to the Laws and Constitution of the Order, was opposed successfully by the Abbot of Mount Melleray, who was supported and defended by Father Mooney. Here, then, we have one of the reasons for the persecution of both the Abbot and the Father. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
