Why do they tend to leave out the juicy stuff?

It would seem that any history of Fr. Maciel, or the Legion of Christ or the Regnum Christi should include the events of May 2006. But alas, they seldom do. See here.

Is this a joke?

How many Legionaries of Christ does it take to Change a blog?

Four: one to ring Father General, another to check the first had all the necessay permissions, a third to check he followed the instructions corectly, a fourth to report the faults of the other three.

Not my joke.

Sent to exlcblog.

"I was responsible for bringing RC/LC into our area and I have been kicking myself ever since. I now have to sleep in the bed I've made and it is a very humbling experience. We brought all of our friends in and promoted very heavily for years."

Thanks for this, J.

Seems that many vocal opponents of the Legion of Christ and the Regnum Christi were those who most promoted them.

Pumpkins for Jesus

Exlcblogger recently got a new Sweepstakes letter from The Legion of Christ. We are now in the Thanksgiving Sweepstakes. The envelope is wonderfully non religious and covered in orange pumpkins. What a nice way to beg for Jesus! 40 ways to win up to $5,000!!!

By the way, Fr. Anthony Bannon is back with his stamped signiture on the literature, even though he holds no position as superior anymore.

Bye bye Fr. Joseph-in-a-Burka

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness,
hello novices
I think I´m-a gonna try
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress,
hello novices
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye...

Fr Joseph Burtka, LC, and Fr Julio Martí, LC, switch roles between position of novice instructor and territorial director of the New York territory.

I hear the guy was a real meanie... guilt tripping those who wanted to leave... shouting.... pure terrorist. Now they replace him with another rich kid...
