...Jim Fair, a Chicago spokesman for Regnum Christi and an affiliated order of priests, the Legion of Christ...

"You know the Kubler-Ross stages of grief -- anger, denial, depression and so forth? We've got all those bases covered all at once," Fair said.

Fair said the legion and Regnum Christi have no intention of renouncing Maciel. "I see his impact on my own family and my kids, and that's not going away. That's still there," said Fair, a Regnum Christi member for 10 years.
(Exlcblog: let's see if this one holds true.)

Efforts by The Times-Picayune over several days to reach nearly a dozen local Regnum Christi families to discuss the disclosures about Maciel were fruitless.

Fair said it was too soon for many families to talk publicly about the shock.
"I sympathize," he said. "It's like trying to interview folks at the wake."
