|Pope Orders Apostolic Visitation of Legion of Christ
OSV Daily Take
March 31, 2009
Pope Benedict XVI has ordered an apostolic visitation of the Legionaries of Christ following acknowledgment by the order that its founder, Father Marcial Maciel, lived a double life (not least of which included fathering a child).
No word yet on the makeup of the team of bishops that performs the visitation, which the Legion says is expected to start "after Easter."
