two happy Legionary priests; one out, one in...Which is which? You will  never guess!



Hello, Dear Readers,
changes in my circumstances got me off track with my blogs and I lament the hiatus.
But God is Good and here I am back again.

EXITING AND EXITED

Legionaries are on my mind. For at least two reasons.

  1. There has been a tremendous coalescence of mostly Spanish speaking young men in the past years, after the failed intervention of the Apostolic Delegate, now Cardinal, Velasio de Paolis, whom these new dissidents have baptized "el Fracasado Apostolico", "the Apostolic Failure-gate."  Legioleaks on Facebook presently has around 1,500 members! https://www.facebook.com/groups/623513181133578/
  2.  I am becoming aware of the many Legionary Priest who have left the ranks and are  now serving the People of God, Catholic Faithful, in many parishes and dioceses of the  USA, Ireland and Mexico  -that I am cognizant of.

Michael Francis X, another Forgotten Legionary of Christ

Shipwrecked





See a recent posting on ReGAIN web page

Memories of First Irish born Legionaries....who went to Salamanca for Noviciate in 1961...

Michael may have been one of the first but he certainly was not the last. Shame prevents others from coming forward. Some have come forward, and bravely so... But they are only the tip of the ice-berg, as is the case with sexual abuse victims

The sad demise of a young Legion of Christ seminarian forced the Legion to disclose his sudden death. It is believed the 26 year old Mexican, in practices in Germany, took his own life. We may never know the real story behind this tragedy

Todd Carpunky, A Successful Survivor of the Legion of Christ

      TBT (way back): from when I was 19 (or 20). I left a few years later with no recognised educational credits and no money. I took my SATs for the first time when I was 22 (1997), took my LSAT in 1998 and started law school in 1999. I spent my first year of college sleeping on the floor of a rundown apartment with my clothes in cardboard boxes. Less than 20 years ago and it seems like another life because it was. Sometimes it is good to look back and realise how far you've come. I'm grateful for where I've been, how far I've come and where I am now. ‪#‎nocomplaintsat40‬
