From around the blogs

I’ve been called away for the weekend and won’t have regular Internet access. However, as Giselle and I have been saying for the last few months, we’re getting a little long in the tooth. So we’re quite happy to see newer, fresher blog voices arise to help Catholics make sense of the Legion of Christ/ Regnum Christi crises. Among some of these voices who have posted good commentary over the past few days:
– Deirdre Mundy (aka Mouse at American Papist), a devoted Catholic mother, launches

UPDATE: Changobeer sighting? John Allen sighting!

UPDATE:
– Mouse from AmP (Deirdre Mundi) is blogging again this afternoon and she deconstructs two myths of Legion/RC supporters: 1) God writes strait with crooked lines; 2) God brings good out of evil.

UPDATE: Recognize what was done to victims, says Holy See

[UPDATE: Zenit has published an excellent, fair and balanced story on the Holy See’s press release. The story even stresses the paragraph that I had quoted below. You can read the Zenit story by clicking here. What’s curious is that in searching Zenit’s archives, I find no coverage of Fr. Sada’s apology earlier this year. Nor can I find any mention of the Legion’s recent, widely-distributed news release concerning their letter to Maciel’s son. Thus I’m pleasantly surprised by the good coverage Zenit gave to the Holy
