Reacting to Abuses within the Legion of Christ

Especially in the Southern United States, I am frequently asked about the Legionaries of Christ.  However, in recent months, the Legionaries have received a great deal of press they would rather not have.  A few weeks ago, Pope Benedict XVI announced plans to revamp the order’s spirituality and culture after their founder was accused of numerous abuses of his office.

Michel Martin, NPR’s Faith Matters speaks with Jason Berry, who recently wrote about the Legion of Christ for The National Catholic Reporter, and David Gibson, a religion writer for Politics Daily.  The discussion is relevant to all of us, but particularly so for the Hispanic Catholic community.
