*3:45pm - CNA has managed to track down the Legionary spokesman, Fr. Jim Fair, LC:
“We’ve learned some things about our founder’s life that are surprising and difficult to understand,” Fair told CNA on Tuesday. "We can confirm that there are aspects of his life that weren’t appropriate for a Catholic priest." Fr. Fair goes on to deny that the Legion will denounce Maciel. We'll wait and see about that one.
*2:30pm - Tom Hoopes, editor of LC-owned National Catholic Register, in Amy's combox:
"All I want to say is, I’m sorry. I want to say it here, because I defended Fr. Maciel here, and I need to be on the record regarding that defense: I’m sorry, to the victims, who were victims twice, the second time by calumny. I’m sorry, to the Church, which has been damaged. I’m sorry, to those I’ve misled. I did it unwittingly, but this isn’t a time for excuses.
The Church gave me great, great good in Regnum Christi. The Church did bring justice, and did penalize this man. Thank God for the Church. I seek repentance and forgiveness, and I leave it at that."
