The revamped new and improved edition of the ReGAIN, INC web page is receiving a lot of attention from people all over the world who seek solid information regarding the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi Movement. Congratulations, ReGAIN!
Expertize from former LC member is helping re-vamp our page REGAIN INC WEB PAGE BEING UPDATED AND TRANSITIONING TO NEW HOST/LEGION OF CHRIST & REGNUM CHristi
Dear Friends of ReGAIN, INC,
on Thanksgiving Day an old friend of the organization took a hand in solving a problem with our old web host and has been mighty successful. We are waiting for the changes to “populate” so the content of articles, opinions and testimonies can be readily and more efficiently available to the public.
Since we began our mission over ten years ago the Legion of Christ order and the Regnum Christi Movements have gone through scandal, upheaval, Vatican interventions and an Extraordinary General Chapter. We would like to think that ReGAIN’s efforts, the writings and testimonies of many analytical and sharp minds of former members, parents, family members and a wide spectrum of concerned Catholics have contributed to revisions, or at least some level of self questioning.
ReGAIN’s mission is to continue to insist, in season and out of season, that Catholics be aware of the true nature of these organizations and that Church authorities stem the infiltration of dangerous cult-like groups within the boundaries of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic.
[Forgive me if the considerations are very pragmatic but the Vatican also operates that way!]
THE VATICAN WANTS TO KEEP PRIESTS AT ALL COSTS BECAUSE NUMBERS CONTINUE TO PLUMMET
Disbanding the Legion would be a major problem; many of the priests in the Legion would be lost in the shuffle
[Former members tell us that many were ordained rapidly without finishing their studies and to fill some magical numbers that Maciel had thought out for image reasons and to impress Catholic Hierarchy and benefactors]
Many vocations in the Legion are not strong and would collapse without the Legion system that monitors their every movement
The Vatican cannot go back and admit that it made a mistake to approving the Legion initially in 1948 [the Monsignors were not there to hear Maciel guffaw about the way he had deceived them with the help of some of his sexually deviant Cardinals AMIGOTES
Stopping the Legion would reflect very poorly on newly canonized Pope John Paul II who had supported Maciel and the Legion until the very end. Cardinal Angelo Sodano and the Pope's Legion-bought secretary, now bishop Dziwisz -who was quickly transferred out of Rome- were mainly responsible for keeping the aging pope in the dark and preventing him from facing reality. The pope was treated like a Mediaval Monarch instead of the Executive Director of the Catholic Church.

UNCENSORED: y la Legiòn al ridìculo en los medios
juveniles y de media cultura ante la indiferencia por las nuevas
constituciones que valen lo mismo que cualquier papel de baño porque a
nadie le importa lo que digan, Ni al Vaticano ni a la cupula legionaria
ni a los gobiernos civiles ni a los socios empresariales
from Chilean authorities which he has so carefully and assiduously cultivated for decades [just as Vatican authorities protected his protector, Fr. Maciel who had cultivated ...].
Fr. was convicted recently and is awaiting sentencing in November. THIS WAS THE VIEW EXPRESSED BY A FOREIGN OBSERVE
-WHICH BLOGGER TRANSLATES FURTHER DOWN.
Adjunto información para que
puedan valorar lo que con toda seguridad ocurre en estos momento en
Chile para encontrar una "solución" al caso del padre John O`Reilly que a
pesar del fallo de los tribunales NO ESTÁ EN LA CÁRCEL.
a algunas fuentes el padre John O`Reilly está en ARRESTO DOMICILIARIO
NOCTURNO. Subrao NOCTURNO. El asunto es casi de humor negro, pues
podemos decir que todos tenemos arresto domiciliario nocturno y en
especial los casados. En otras palabras se le impide su vida de Night
es harto benévolo el anuncio de una pena de sólo diez años de cárcel y
un día a quien ha obrado con premeditación, alevosía, ventaja y
no encontrarnos con algún término que suene más o menos: "considerada
la falta de unanimidad y ciertas diferencias en los peritos, y teniendo
en cuenta la precaria salud de ministro de culto John O`Reilly la pena
de cinco años de arresto la podrá cumplir en su domicilio debiendo
presentarse a firmar cada semana ante las siguientes autoridades..." VERY OFTEN NEWS ABOUT THE LEGION/REGNUM CHRISTI DOES NOT REACH ENGLISH SPEAKERS BECAUSE THE NEWS IS IN SPANISH OR ANOTHER FOREIGN LANGUAGE, V.G .ITALIAN, AND NEVER REACHES ENGLISH SPEAKING MEDIA AND AUDIENCES
.....John O'Reilly who is convicted IN NOT IN PRISON
HE HAS "NOCTURNAL HOUSE ARREST" WHICH MEANS HE IS FREE TO MOVE AROUND DURING THE DAY BUT HAS TO BE HOME AT NIGHT. MAY BE KIND OF BLACK HUMOR. BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE NOCTURNAL HOUSE ARREST, ESPECIALLY MARRIED MEN. IN OTHER WORDS FATHER CANNOT FREQUENT NIGHT CLUBS.
HE IS ALREADY GETTING OFF LIGHTLY WITH A POSSIBLE TEN YEAR PRISON SENTENCE FOR SOMEONE WHO WITH PREMEDITATION AND MALICE ABUSED AT LEAST ONE VERY YOUNG GIRL OVER A PERIOD OF YEARS....
WE HOPE IT IS NOT GOING TO END UP SOMETHING LIKE:
"CONSIDERING THE LACK TO TOTAL AGREEMENT AND CERTAIN DIFFERENCES AMONG THE EXPERTS, AND TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE PRECARIOUS HEALTH OF THE RELIGIOUS MINISTER, JOHN O' REILLY, THE PUNISHMENT OF FIVE YEARS OF HOUSE ARREST CAN BE MUTED TO A WEEKLY VISIT TO THE PERTINENT AUTHORITIES TO SIGN HIS PROMISE NOT TO FLEE THE COUNTRY...."
Just learned about this. See previous posts on this blog
The blogger is researching claims made by a Chilean digital news that Fr. O'Reilly, who was close to Pedophile Legion of Christ Founder, Fr. Marcial Maciel, was whisked out of Ireland in 1985 before he could be investigated for abusing minors....Being an international order and having lots of money the Legion often switches its members across the continents for its own "efficacy" (convenience).
What we do know is that Dublin born Fr. O'Reilly entered the Legion of Christ at around 18 years of age and trained at the Legion Novitiate in Leopardstown, later in Salamanca and Rome. While in Rome he was one of the privileged few to be Fr. Maciel's personal waiter. He, like many other naive Legionaries, during 6 decades, admired and adulated the supposed saint.
Fr. O'Reilly, on the heels of fellow Dubliner, Fr. Raymond Cosgrave, spearheaded the Legion's recruitment, fundraising and societal influence among Chile's upper classes, establishing the exclusive Instituto Cumbres school in a residential neighborhood of the Chilean capital, Santiago while socializing with the rich and famous.
He achieved prominence and power for the Legion culminating in his being made a Chilean citizen several years ago
Chile: Irish Priest Guilty of Sex-Abuse on Minor
SANTIAGO, Chile — Oct 15, 2014, 2:08 PM ET
An Irish-born priest was found guilty on Wednesday of sexually abusing a
minor while he was chaplain at a school in Chile's capital.
A court in Santiago said that the Rev. John O'Reilly committed the abuse
while he was the spiritual guide at the Cumbres school located in the
affluent neighborhood of Las Condes.
The families of two sisters had accused the priest of molesting the
pre-teen girls between 2007 and 2012. The court absolved him in one of
the cases. His sentence will be announced on Nov. 11.
"The court has established ... beyond all reasonable doubt the following
facts: that O'Reilly decided to carry out actions of a sexual nature
through body contact with a school student," Judge Maria Teresa
Barrientos, said adding that the priest committed the abuse several
times in 2010 and 2012 during school hours.
O'Reilly, who arrived to Chile in the mid-1980s and was granted Chilean
citizenship in 2008, is a member of the Legion of Christ. The
once-respected conservative order fell into scandal after it revealed
that its founder had fathered a child and had sexually abused
Prosecutors are asking for O'Reilly, who has denied any wrongdoing, to
serve 10 years in prison and be banned from any job near children.
The Roman Catholic Church retains a strong influence over society in
Chile, although it has lost credibility since 2010, when four men
alleged that they were abused by one of the country's most revered
priests when they were between 14 and 17 years old.
The Vatican sanctioned Rev. Fernando Karadima by ordering him to a life
of "penitence and prayer." A Chilean judge later dismissed a criminal
case because the statute of limitations had expired, but she concluded
that the abuse allegations were truthful.
