Apparently the rumors are true (I try to stay away from them until they are confirmed). But, the founder of the Legionaries of Christ, Fr. Marcial Maciel, has stirred up an even bigger scandal than previously thought.
Please remember a few things.
1 - Everyone is a sinner and nobody is capable of making God stop loving them.
2 - We all need forgiveness.
3 - The Legionaries is bigger than Fr. Maciel now. They will survive, though it will hurt them.
4 - All involved need our prayers.
Catholic News Agency got a statement from a LC spokesman that is not good. Ed Peters then responds.
