Yet another article claims that the Vatican has opened an investigation of Father Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ. But this article doesn’t really tell us anything new.
Like all the other articles, it quotes the accusers as saying that the Vatican has opened an investigation. Granted, they are specific in their details. They said that Msgr. Charles Scicluna of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has flown to the US and Mexico to collect testimony. If that’s not true, then they would be easily exposed in the lie. So I’m leaning toward believing it.
Still, we have no official or independent verification of the investigation being opened. Stay tuned.
