Corcuera and other Legionaries keep telling lies, bare-faced and otherwise! #38 in the series How to...

Dear reader, forgive this outburst.

I have just celebrated a birthday, a big number. It brings reflections on my life and how brief our time on earth is. What have I done with my life? How to make sense of my time in the Legion and what I did after leaving? I am honest with myself as I get closer to meeting my Creator?

And I learn that Fr. Alvaro has begun to attempt to outreach Maciel's victims to "beg them for pardon on his bended knee". The rhetoric of the phrase is sickening and already sounds false. He goes on to swear to the victim that he knows nothing of the lawsuit the Legion brought against REGAIN INC two years ago. "What a terrible thing! I must look into this..."
It is just not possible to countenance this hypocrisy and barefaced lying!
And poor naive -or misguided and blind- people wonder why bishop or archbishop so and so could be so misguided in kicking them out when they do so much good and carry on the values of Catholic Orthodoxy and Tradition. But they are so conniving and deceitful it is just not possible to tolerate anymore going behind the bishop's back and making a fool of him in front of his own faithful!

Such an episode turns my stomach once again. The lying, the deceit, the hypocrisy that we ex-members were subject to for years. Seems like the Legion, the Regnum and its leaders never learn their lesson. Maciel's total untruthfulness and deceit has been transmitted to the Legion superiors and Regnum Christi directors. Truth is not important to them. Only saving face, doing PR, bringing in the money and the recruits, keeping the wool pulled over the eyes of their innocent and docile -especially female- members.
Most of the Americans who have left the Legion have done so because they were lied to. It is something that Americans cannot abide by. Once they find out they have been deceived they get very angry. And this healthy anger can even break through their resistence to doubt their superiors, to break that taboo...

Good Morning, and wake up American Legionaries and Regnum Christi members!


  1. Are you saying that Fr A HAS begun apologizing to victims? Is your information coming from LC sources? Or from victims who have been approached by Fr A?

  2. Jane,
    Fr Corcuera outreached one victim by phone. I have described and given my impression above.
    My skepticism re Fr. Corcuera's intentions may be biased.
    Did you read my memoir to see where I am coming from. I just happen to be one of the very few who dares to publicly voice criticism of the Legion and its leaders. Most of the other "dissenters" are scared to death of lawsuits, want to bury the hatchet and/or their memories, and get on with their lives.

  3. It is not sufficient to "apologize" in general "for all the harm Fr Maciel has done". It is certainly not enough to plead ignorance of Maciel's misdeeds, as Fr. Alvaro does. He was very close to Maciel for years, personally "cultivated" by Maciel to join the RC and then to go on to the priesthood. If Fr. Alvaro "had no idea these terrible things" were happening or were happening then he is a very Naive person and should not be in a leadership position. Or he is simply lying in the Legion and Regnum tradition.

  4. Álvaro Corcuera is an idiot. That's no news. That's exactly why he was hand-picked by the paedophile monster.

  5. Dear friend,
    careful there...
    Do I sense a tinge of double-meaning in that "hand-picked"?....The Holy Man often "hand-pricked" his leaders from what those nasty lying seminarians have said in the their testimonies. His "hand of God", like Maradona and Henri, full of masterful expertise, fingered a whole generation of Legion superiors such as Duenas, Cristoforo Fernandez, Javier...

  6. Please add to Fr Maciel's hand-picked cadre

  7. Gracias por estas noticias, Pablo. A ver si Corcuera se pone en contacto con los demás vícitimas. Esto de estar "de rodillas" me suena bastante falsa dado que se está llamando por teléfono, osea, no tiene ni la educación de venir para hablar en persona. ¿Acaso uno se puede confesar por teléfono? Creo que no.


  8. Daniel,
    being in the legion for any prolonged period of time teaches you to be very suspicious of "segundas intenciones", "other intentions"...Alvaro's move may have had a lot to do with impressing this exlegionary's sister who is still in the RC

    La movida de Alvarito podria tener que ver con impresionar a la hermana de este exlc quien esta todavia en el RC. "Ay, que santo es el Padre Alvarto!"
