Sunday Legion roundup

I’m off to the in-laws for supper, but there’s lots of good discussion on the Legion of Christ (LC) and Regnum Christi (RC) on other blogs:
1 – Life After RC has posted LC communication director Jim Fair’s statement on recent revelations from Spanish-language new sources. You can read the statement here.
