Priestly society recommended as new home for ex-Legionaries

In the wake of recent revelations about the sins of the founder of the Legion of Christ, which has prompted the Holy See to initiate an Apostolic Visitation to investigate the order, the question arises of what will become of those Legionaries who wish to leave.

The former Legionary who runs Exlcblog recommends ex-Legionaries consider entering the Mission Society of Mandeville [see also the society's official Web site]:

The initial members of this missionary society went through something very similar to what the LC's are going through. They belonged to the Sons of Mary, a Canadian group which basically "went mad" and is now in schism with the Church because of false mysticism and other warped attitudes too long to describe here. Having also known the Sons of Mary, this ex-LC also knows that there were some healthy spiritual characteristics in the Sons of Mary that were identical to the LC's. Indeed in the mid 80s, the Sons of Mary were the only religious with which the members of the LC's could mingle freely. Their devotion to the Eucharist, to the Blessed Mother and their faithfulness to the Pope were akin to that of the LC's. [Read the full post.]
