LC Acknowledge Sexual Abuse of Minor Seminarians by Their Founder
A communique was issued on March 26 signed by 16 leaders of the Legionaries of Christ acknowledging that based on the findings of a canonical investigation the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith had initiated in 2004, their founder had molested minor seminarians. For the CNN World account of this story see:
The communique stated that the leaders of LC had thought and hoped that the accusations brought against their founder were false and unfounded. Before the recent visitation by the Vatican, the Legion had defended their founder's innocence for years.
What effect will this admission have on the future of the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi? Stay tuned.
