Papal delegate names commission to revise charter of Legionaries

Catholic World News - December 10, 2010

The prelate appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to supervise reforms within the troubled Legionaries of Christ has named a commission to revise the constitution of the congregation.

Cardinal Velasio De Paolis named two of his own advisers and four Legionary priests to the commission. Significantly, none of the priests appointed to the commission is a current member of the leadership of the Legionaries.

    As someone who began making regular donations to the Legionairies when I first came back to the Church (They asked.), the longer I gave, the more things just seemed "wrong." There wasn't even a single homely seminarian on their calendar pictures. I just wish that the Legionaries would leave for other communities and shut it all down. Who wants to belong to a community founded by a pervert?
