American Investigator of Legion and Regnum welcomes input from Affected Catholics --#23 in the series How to...
Please notice this blog's consistency
Several credible sources tell us that Arch Bishop Chaput welcomes SHORT testimonies and info from all those who have been adversely affected by the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi in the USA.
Please use discretely and avoid abusing His Grace's time and energy.
It will be impossible for the archbishop to review emails if they are not BRIEF and to the point. Think one paragraph or two. If he wants more info he will ask for it.
Mark communications to him as "PRIVATE." Only he will open them

Vatican Investigation Officially Underway 15 July 2009 --#22 in the Series "How to get a loved Out..."
The Carmelite Friars were prominent in the first [1956-58] investigation.
The Vatican chose July 15, 2009, Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, as the official start date for this "Visitation" of the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi
"Visitation" being Vaticanese for "investigation"
It is open-ended and, to echo Michelangelo's words to Pope Julius II, will end when it ends, i.e., will take as long as needed. It will be secret, or under oath and confidential; I imagine updates or results will be given to the public; secret reports will be filed with the corresponding authorities, hopefully above the head of Mons Franc Rode, head "Prefect" of the Congregation for Religious, who ate out of Fr Maciel's hand and is presently beguiled by baby-faced Superior General, Alvaro Corcuera [who previously had been beguiled by Fr Maciel's holiness]
