At 1 am today, February 5, 2021, Maciel Survivor Fr. Féliz Alarcón (Hoyos) passed away in Madrid, Spain at the age of 87
This way the Pontifically approved Legion of Christ/Regnum Christi Federation can stop worrying about compensation for his abuse by their Foúnder and pro vida General Director, Fr. Marcial Maciel (Degollado), LC.
Newly elected General Director, Fr. John Connor, the victims’ Great While Hope, after a triumphal entrance full of promises of taking care of Maciel’s sexual abuse victims and thus cleaning up the mes in the Legion house, soon fell back into Legion Tradition: delay, delay, delay, play cat and mouse with victims; he gave some of them paltry Easter eggs of $5,000.00 UScy last year – “this is just a gift, not compensation!” If Fr. Félix received that or more is a secret. The Kingdom of Maciel operates by stealth, secret and gag order…
No serious negotiation with the victims
No respecting agreements withu intermediary (the intermediary was in cahoots with r bought over by the LC/RC!)
No negotiations with the victims as a group. “Divide and Conquer!”
Fr. Connor and other Legionary priests found a way to split the group.
Meanwhile, one victim, Mexican Fernando Pérez Olvera, a former seminarian, died in 2020
Today, another victim, a Spaniard, passed away in Madrid. ReGAIN admires the fact that he was able to hold onto his priesthood until death.
Now this sect-like Catholic o’rganization will shed crocodile tears in Spanish -for their “Dear Brother in Christ”, -a flowery Spanish language statement was released by Fr. Connor saying how much he cared for and helped Fr. Felix- maybe even celebrate a Mass for the repose of his scarred soul.. Who knows what human prudence and astuteness shall dictate.

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.
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.
