This.

I truly loved this order and saw it as a model and hope for the Church.

In human terms, I see their persecution as due chiefly to two factors:  (1) they indict the Novus Ordo establishment by their very existence, holiness and success; and (2) because of their fidelity to the Magisterium, they are viewed as something like "near enemies" are in Buddhism -- capable of being easily accepted as real Catholicism and therefore, from these people's perspectives, "masquerading" as true, "liberating," "spirit of Vatican II" religiosity, presenting a lethal threat to them.

The Friars' response?  Our response?  Don't forget the Cross.  The Cross is precisely the one you don't want.  The Cross often involves injustice, being misunderstood, being persecuted, even by the Church.  (St. Pio of Pietreclina.  St. Joan of Arc.)  Don't reject the Cross, people.  Not now.

Put up your swords.
