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]
