Novena for friends & family caught in LC/RC

Over the past year I have heard the stories of several good, orthodox Catholics stuck in LC/RC. Some were related to me by friends and family. Others by the individuals themselves. With the Feast of Divine Mercy past us for another year, I will be starting a novena on Monday, April 12 for those individuals who feel stuck in Maciel’s methodology. This novena will be to Our Lady of Good Remedy.

Forget to add water to those kool-aid crystals?

Bonum invited ex-Legionary Mortalitor to guest blog (click here). Here is one of the insights Mortalitor shared concerning his experience with the Legion:

Danielle Bean and the Legion of Christ…

4. We don’t account for his bad deeds, only our good works;
5. Therefore, don’t worry about

Day 9 – Divine Mercy Novena for LC/RC victims

Christ is risen! Alleluia! Truly He is risen!

If you did not make the first day, don’t worry about it. Join in anyway. God will honor your prayers for this intention.

Good news for Regnum Christi members!

Barely a week into the month, and already April is turning into a horrible month for Regnum Christi (RC) members. First, Jason Berry reports that Maciel and LC allegedly made several questionable donations to high-ranking Vatican officials. The silver lining is that Pope Benedict – at the time Cardinal Ratzinger – reportedly refused such donations. He did so firmly. Thus RC members can feel reassured that the Holy Father will get to the bottom of the Legion scandal, that the Holy Father’s integrity in doing so is beyond
