Whither the Spirituality Books of the Legion
...some of Maciel's writings still available to buy from the LCs... click here
According the Fr. Karras:
But while Fr. Maciel masqueraded as the saintly founder, the admirable priest, apostle and ‘suffering servant of Yahweh’ that all the LCs sought to emulate in their own vocation, his writings were veritable treasures that we meditated and quoted, memorized and preached.
Once we found out who he truly was, those same writings have turned into the cruelest of jokes, a most unholy parody of true spirituality and religious tradition, a sacrilegious satire that should make us all ashamed of having once proudly called ourselves ‘co-founders’.
The bathwater dissolved whatever baby there was long, long ago.
So throw it out with no regrets.
