‘Brother Martin,’ Self-Described Monk with Large Twitter Following, Says He Won’t Heed Bishop’s Warning

ScreenshotMartin Navarro, a layman and founder of the group the Oblates of St. Augustine, is refusing to obey his bishop’s demands that he no longer fundraise, identify himself as “brother,” dress in a habit, and construct a chapel in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.

Navarro, 31, has asked Bishop Johnston to formally recognize a Traditional Latin Mass religious group he started called the Oblates of St. Augustine.
