This is something that has been troubling some Legion and Regnum Christi trackers ever since Fr. Alvaro Corcuera Martinez del Rio became Fr. Maciel's successor
Why was Fr. Alvaro appointed, because only the most naive would believe that he was duly elected. At that time Fr. Maciel was alive and active and with a finger in all the Legion pies -forgive the metaphor!
Why did Maciel choose Alvaro?
What was the nature of their relationship?
Alvaro has always spoken of Maciel's spiritual paternity
Was there more than this?
Maciel cultivated Alvaro Corcuera ['s vocation] from infancy
Did Alvaro know about Maciel's escapades?
Did Maciel confide in him?
How close were they?
