J.Paul Lennon has been using his COVID-19 lockdown to read and comment on his autobiography- A Naive and Sentimental Dubliner in the Legion of Christ– on YouTube. Here he will regale you with the latest episode, commenting on Chapter 14 which describes his participation in fundraising as a young seminarian.

A couple of chapters in the latter part of his book want to tell the reader What Fr. Maciel was really like without the aura of adulation which surrounded him even to his unrepentant deathbed: his human personality, his strenghts and weaknesses. Looking back now, objectively, the author realizes very clearly that Fr. Maciel was in fact charismatic.

But his was not a spiritual charism – usually associated with founders of relgious orders. His was a totally human, one might say materialistic- charism. He has been called by investigative journalist Jason Berry the greatest Catholic Fundraiser of the second half of the XX century. And it seems that this charism was transmitted to his followers, male and female.

They carry on his mission with and without the permission of local bishops.

An example of the Legion/Regnum Christi Federation’s of this particular talent was recently submitted by a perceptive reader.

This is how the LC/RC stays under Vatican radar.

They waited until Bishop Conley was out of town trying to regain his health, poor man. Then, they swooped in and OPENLY declared their presence and made it look like there was a connection with other Catholic groups and particularly with the Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat Center — which was once owned by the LC and sold to the diocese. Bishop Conley forbade them in his diocese! These sly devils raise money through a dozen culverts to suck up the treasure that would otherwise go to the ministry of the Church through fund raising. They do not often allow their name to be associated with their fund raising efforts. But the use of Regnum Christi has replaced Legionaries of Christ, as if it were the new-new thing. In fact, it is the religious division of criminal-connected world bankers who are using people’s desire to do good as a rich vein for their own corrupt money, money, money.
