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.

From ‘untouchable’ to out-of-touch

Anonymous raises an interesting question in the Was Maciel’s ‘medical condition’ contagious? blog discussion:
