Wednesday, August 27, 2003 The sectarian threat posed by ecclesial movements, the little churches within the Church, is the focus of an article by Sandro Magister at L'Espresso Online. Meantime, the REGAIN site has plenty on the Legion of Christ, including a useful atlas of its front groups and media organs, including Zenit, National Catholic Register, and Catholic.net.
Comments Lee Penn:I see the endorsement of "new ecclesial movements" by a "spirit of Vatican II" journal [Concilium] as -- in a small way -- analogous to the German-Soviet pact of 1939. The totalitarians of the left and right in 1939 shook hands and agreed to divide Poland; it seems that the Right and the Left in the Roman Catholic Church are giving each other a handshake, too. Who will be the loser? You fill in the blanks.
