Apostolic Delegate Ordains Legion Priests whose formation system he is reforming


VATICAN CITY, DEC. 19, 2011 
- At the conclusion of his weekly audience last Wednesday, Benedict XVI had comforting words for a group of newly ordained priests from the Legion of Christ.
The 49 priests were ordained Dec. 12 at Rome's Basilica of St. John Lateran by Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, the papal delegate overseeing the reform of the congregation.
The Pope said he wished God to support them in their ministry, so that they can carry out their mission of evangelical service with joy and fidelity.


Blogger notes: Curiouser and Curiouser
"Neutral and objective" Cardinal De Paolis, the papal delegate overseeing the reform of the congregation, ordained the 49 new Legion priests formed by the system created by disgraced founder, Marcial Maciel, a system which is currently under review by said Cardinal De Paolis.

A Great Man Goes, Vaclav Havel

Vaclav Havel in 1990

In a world of dictators, impostors, liars, and deceivers

With sadness we see him pass
With gladness we pay tribute
to a champion of Freedom
