Dear Legionary, How Long are you going to Wait?
Some left a couple of years ago when Maciel died and he lost his grip on the tripulation, his hold on the members loosened, and his cronies tried to batten down the hatches
Some left when Maciel's sordid life was revealed
Some left when they thought the Investigation would take too long or would not be rigorous enough
Some have been placated by Mons De Paolis message to the members in Rome, and have put their leaving on hold
He tells them to hold on to their charism and their vocation.
What charism? The charism bequeated by a totally selfish and self-serving person, full of deceit? A charism to assure the rich that they could get to heaven by helping the Legion?
What vocation? A vocation that was never once properly discerned. It was only reinforced with pseudo-Ignation spiritual exercises and by Spiritual Direction similar to brainwashing
How long will it take to reform the Legion?
Is the Legion worth reforming?
Can a total Narcissist, Marcial Maciel, really found a religious order based on altruistic love?
