The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (better known by its original name, the Inquisition) warns Romulo Antonio Braschi, founder of a Catholic schismatic movement, and the seven women he ordained (Christine Mayr-Lumetzberger, Adelinde Roitinger, Gisela Forster, Iris Muller, Ida Raming, Pia Brunner and Dagmar Braun Celeste) that they will be excommunicated if they do not acknowledge the nullity of their ordination and ask forgiveness.

In 1976 Braschi created the independent Catholic Church in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This church isn't in communion with the Catholic Church in Rome yet still claims to be Catholic.

Braschi was ordained a Catholic priest in 1966, and his independent Catholic Church has branches in several European and Latin American countries.
