Yet Another Legionary Cover?


The Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums is a select group of people dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of the vast and unique collection of art contained in the Vatican Museums. The Patrons have been in existence since 1982 when a major exhibition of Vatican art toured the United States in New York, Chicago and San Francisco. Restoration of the art contained in the exhibition was made possible by donors recognizing the unique opportunity to participate in the work of the Vatican Museums. One year later, the Patrons organization was officially launched. Patrons worldwide have accepted the same membership in this exclusive work of art history.

Exlcblogger wonders if this is yet another way to funnel some monies to the Legion of Christ. Is Fr. Haydu, BLC (blond Legionary of Christ) freelancing with the Vatican? Is the Vatican the real owner behind this organization? Is the Vatican being used while Fr. Haydoo-with-the-blond-hairdoo sets up yet another co-opted Legionary shop?

What do the investigators have to say? (Exlcblogger is capable of guessing all by his lonesome)
Is Exlcblogger the only one who does not trust these, um, people?

Hey -do,

Don't make it bad,
take a sad song,
and make it better!

This is the RC-lite version that piggy-backs on the authentic Vatican work. If anything were created to funnel money, this would be how it's done:

Might be entirely legit, but there's always that "parallel church" version alongside the Real McCoy. Why couldn't they leave well enough alone...?
