"Smile like you mean it"? Come now, Exlcblogger - you know better than that!

9. The face of the legionary belongs to others. Always display happiness and serenity as a manifestation of inner richness. At the other extreme, avoid all sign of depression, insecurity or timidity. Do not display a worried, sad, melancholy or disgusted face, or show an exaggerated form of happiness.

[from Norms of Urbanity and Human Relations of the Legion of Christ]

Legionaries are specially trained to know just how much happiness to show at any given time. Whether a Legionary means it is entirely besides the point.

Anonymous, I am sure that you quoted the Norms from memory, right? and more or less paraphrased, right?. It would be good to clarify that in a subsequent posting, so as to protect Exlcbloggers a$$, please.

Ding Dong! The founder is dead. Which old founder? The Wicked founder!
Ding Dong! The Wicked founder is dead.
Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked founder is dead. He's gone where the goblins go,
Below - below - below. Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked founder is dead!

The founder is dead but his spirit lives on in the norms, in the constitutions, in the (gulp) lives of his devotees.

And should the Legion ever stray from the path marked out for it by God, the founder will come shamblin' back from the dead to set it straight. Lord, he's a ramblin' man!

So how exactly would that work? Would he plop down at a desk with some Black Label and start some spiritual directions? Maybe tell some of his secretaries to come up with some letters he can sign? Or rail against the Jesuits in a plactica? I mean, wouldn't people sort of know something is a little ... off?
