ReGAIN believes that by now the Pope and his hierarchy, having carried out a year long investigation into the life of the founder (2005-6) and recently a worldwide Vatican visitation, should have a good understanding of the nature and Modus Operandi of the Legion. Jason Berry has recently disclosed how Fr. Maciel used money to buy influence and protection from members of the hierarchy.

High Noon approaches and new questions are being asked, the world watches and waits to see whether the Vatican will
