Case re-opened for Legionaries founder

Case re-opened for Legionaries founder

The Vatican is re-opening the investigation into allegations against Fr. Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ. He was accused of abusing several young men in Mexico decades ago. The cases were originally dismissed by the Vatican after what some have said was a perfunctory investigation.

I wonder why the case is being re-opened now and I wonder if it has anything to do with Archbishop Harry Flynn of Minneapolis ordering the LCs to keep off diocesan property a few weeks ago just after returning from his ad limina visit.
