Response to LC/RC communiques

I just finished reading the two letters/communiques put out by the Legion of Christ/ Regnum Christi (LC/RC) over the weekend. I did so line-by-line. Here is my initial impressions, in point form, for those who are interested:
– The letter from Fr. Alvaro seems to be written for the inside, that is current members and close supporters of Regnum Christi and the Legion of Christ. Whereas the communique signed by Fr. Alvaro and various Legion superiors seems to be written for the broader Church community

New monk and cow adventure!

I will respond to the two Legion communiques in a separate post, but first a few updates:

Among some of these voices who have posted good commentary over the past few days:

Beware monks pushing pope under bus

The kids and I are out with a bad cold, which thankfully, has spared my wife who is looking after us. So your homework assignment for today – particularly those who are new to the debate – is to read and reflect on the following:
1 – Former Legionary priest Jack Keogh (aka Monk)’s response to Pope Benedict’s letter to the Irish, Is it time to convene the Third Vatican Council. Although it would be a gross exaggeration to proclaim Monk as an unofficial blog spokesman
