In the comments box below, RC Is Not My Life chides me gently for having misunderstood her taste in ice cream:

Pete,
I chose HEATH Bar Crunch, not HEALTH Bar Crunch.
A HEATH bar is chocolate-covered toffee.
I was brainwashed by RC, not Richard Simmons!!!

Perhaps it’s in somewhat poor taste to belabor the discussion, but one of the many allegations circulating about the Legion of Christ is that the portly need not apply. I’m not sure whether or not this allegation is true. However, it comes from many sources and – now that I think about it – I’ve never seen a plump Legionary priest or seminarian.
Which got me thinking of some of the heavyweights canonized by the Church throughout the centuries. Pope St. Pius X and St. Thomas Aquinas come to mind immediately. And St. Augustine is often portrayed as bearing quite the august physique. And many Catholics are salivating over the movement to canonize G.K. Chesterton.
Based solely on their physique, and not their deep faith or intellectual prowess, would any of the four been acceptable candidates to the Legion’s seminarians? I don’t know. However, if the allegation is true, it fattens the credibility of those who accuse Legionary priests of being lightweights lacking in well-roundedness.
