THE GOSPEL TRUTH ABOUT THE LEGION OF CHRIST

 

Introduction

A privilege to be able to publish a serious work by a former Legionary of Christ who has given thought to how this religious organization works.

It has long been the contention of ReGAIN that the Legion has few, if any, doctrinal errors. That has never been the problem. As regards doctrine it is bland and repetitious.

What we have been questioning for the past few decades is

the organization’s modus operandi, i.e., how it operates, how it works, its internal operating system, how it recruits, maintains and expels or lets members go, how it raises enormous amounts of money, goes it alone without the local church and works almost exclusively with the upper classes; an aspect that only a small number of more perspicacious Catholics grasp.

Not so those who study “High Demand Groups”, such as International Cultic Studies, Cult Education’s Rick Ross, Combating Mind Control’s Steven Hassan, et.al. who all HAVE THE LEGION ON THEIR WATCH LISTS.  At least 8 American bishops has seen through the Legion’s appearances, “Glittering Images”, as British novelist, Susan Howatch, describes them in the Anglican Church.

Here we have a detailed study of that modus operandi 

. Give it your attention.

The author has also regaled us with something about Fr. Maciel’s Movement, Legion/Regnum Christi:

Editor‘s Note:

“Apostolates”, as in external good works, projects, schools, universities, support groups for the rich and famous, influential and rich businessmen, politicians…

“Apostolics” as in junior/minor seminarians, joining at high-school age or younger to discern their call to the priesthood(!!!)

Fr Maciel founded the Legion of Christ religious/priestly order 1941 ; then he founded the Regnum Christi organization (circa 1965) for lay people committed to the Legion at various levels of commitment. Later (1975) he began saying that the Regnum Christi was the over-arching movement embracing religious, clergy and lay people. But then, after revelations of Fr. Maciel’s triple life as a con-man (2009), the the Legion & Regnum wanted to distance themselves from the corrupt founder; the Regnum moved away from the Legion. Then a splinter group, Totus Tuus, separated from the Regnum Christi with the blessing of a Chilean cardinal….The Regnum is presently trying to restructure itself. Hope the reader can follow this labyrinthine journey.

Marcial Maciel & Walter White: Breaking Bad in Meth and Sex

Father Maciel and Walter White: Breaking Bad in Meth and Sex

Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. The show originally aired on the AMC network for five seasons, from January 20, 2008, to September 29, 2013. It tells the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, who, together with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), turns to a life of crime, producing and selling crystallized methamphetamine to secure his family’s financial future before he dies, while navigating the dangers of the criminal world. The title is from a Southern colloquialism meaning to “raise hell”. Breaking Bad is set and was filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Financial Empire of the Legion of Christ

 

(Maciel kneeling obsequiously before Pope John Paul II whom he completely deceived)

Pope Benedict XIV referred to the “enigmatic figure” of Fr. Maciel. No doubt about it. It is hard to understand who Maciel was and what he pretended and how his person and work is related to what is known as the Legion of Christ religious order.

One thing is clear: Maciel was the greatest Catholic fundraiser of the late XX Century. (According to Jason Berry, at least)

His business acumen was extraordinary.

Mexican banker, Manuel Espinosa Yglesias, once stated half in jest: “Fr. Maciel, it is just as well you are not in our business. You would have left the rest of us all far behind!”

Don Manuel missed the point: Maciel was in the business world. He was a business entrepreneur extraordinaire. Continue reading The Financial Empire of the Legion of Christ

Legion of Christ Priest Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI), as diagnosed by Superiors

You have a Serious Mental Illness!

A Legionary Priest describes how he was diagnosed as Seriously Mental Ill (SMI) by his Legionary superiors, deceitfully interned in a psychiatric hospital and treated with dangerous psychotropic medications. His self-preservation instinct, his family, one kind companion, and the help of humble lay people saved him.

A Catholic Father’s Lament For His Regnum Christi Daughter (2005 article needs updating)

Editorial Comment, Thanksgiving, 2015

The original article was written around 2005 and therefore needs updating. Since then the Legion of Christ male religious order and the Regnum Christi mostly female lay movement have underdone a Vatican “visitation”, i.e. investigation, and renewal. The Vatican Apostolic Delegate gave the organizations a clean bill of health after some changes were made, an Extraordinary Chapter General was held, a team re wrote the LC constitutions and these were later  approved by Pope Francis. It also appears that the RC may have acquired some degree of autonomy from the LC priest directors. Presently these two groups -or are they one?- prefer to show themselves publicly as “Regnum Christi/Legion of Christ” -see current web page Regnum Christi- perhaps as a way to blur their relationship with their criminal founder.

The ambiguity that ReGAIN has always criticized regarding the organizations spawned by  Nuestro Pedophile Padre is once more apparent in the new webpage: it states that the Legion/Regnum Christi is celebrating its/their 75th anniversary in 2016. It is true that the Legion was born in 1941 but the Regnum Christi was born decades later; so it cannot be celebrating its 75 anniversary too. But in this re writing or history we are now told that the Legion and Regnum are kind of the same thing and therefore even if the RC was created later  by the founder, nevertheless it was somehow founded at the same time as the LC.

If you are a true believer in this “Work of God” such logical niceties will be of little concern.

The writer of the original article, however,  does have concerns about the validity of some of his statements  from 10 years ago and that is why ReGAIN editors began with a clarification.

In all honesty we must admit that LC/RC separation from family is not as rigid or inhuman as before (probably because of Vatican prompting): members are allowed home a couple of times a year. Editors have witnessed cases of members coming home for Thanksgiving or special occasions or anniversaries. How could we not rejoice with them and their families?

Because ReGAIN editors do not, for the most part,  have much up to date information on the real actual situation inside the Regnum Christi we would appreciate it if present or past members should shed some light.

 

[Original 2005 circa article below]

I remember one of the first things that I noted on the ReGAIN website when I discovered it several years ago was the checklist for cults provided by Father Peter Cronin. I had taken several courses previously about cults (never thinking that there would be any in the Catholic Church). As I went through the check list it helped me to confirm that our daughter (a 3gf Regnum Christi member since 1988) was in a cult.
