For now, the author stresses the linguistics game, so that outsiders understand that words don't necessarily mean what we think they do.
We must not lose sight of the semantic problem, ie the grammar of the Catholic faith is not the same as the grammar of the Legion. The words sound the same but the meaning is different. In the present case the two keywords are ECONOMY and SALVATION. One is the way to the Church, one for the Legion. While the Church is [devoted to the] economy of salvation, the Legion [is devoted to the] SALVATION OF THE ECONOMY. To the Church, salvation in Christ is important, for the Legion the economy is paramount.
That said, I'll skip to his examples:
The texts on the economy as part of the fifth chapter: convey love. First section "Conditions for vigorous growth." Letter "F) vigorous economy":
143. LEGION CAN NOT APPLY widely and effectively their role in the Church unless it has the ordinary means that, according to the designs of providence, our turn and bring SEARCH.
COMMENT: The Legion historic engine is the economy. God has arranged for the ordinary Legionary to seek and find money. Like those who subscribe to Marx's historical materialism, Legionaries believe that economics is the driving force of history.
144. The growth of the apostolate and its necessary expansion require us all a greater commitment and institutional personnel in finding the necessary financial resources. As our founding father noted, no one can be exempted from this COMMITMENT.
COMMENT: The works require money, money works grow and demand more money to grow and demand more money. The key apostolic work is not a person who helps other people, what matters is money. Getting the love of money is the teaching of the Founder sacrilegious.
145. Therefore, we ask for a renewed effort to make each center section or apostolate ACHIEVE financed through own funds or donations, more efficient operation and savings. We must also build on our own, following the example of our founder, a real passion for faith, trust in God and HUMILITY IN ACHIEVING VOLUNTARY. Often, the only thing missing is launched to ask, without fear of failure that often accompany this activity. Specific applications can be varied, since the attainment of scholarships to members in formation or maintenance of the members in ministry, in collaboration with the collection offices have been established in some countries to obtain resources to finance construction, investments, etc..
COMMENT: Paragraph 145 illustrates fully the semantic problem. Faith, trust in God and humility are virtues [in the pursuit of] money.
The grammar of the Catholic faith and grammar of the Legion collide with unusual violence: faith equals money, trust in God equals money, humility equals money, the charism equals money.
No matter the person, what capital is launched to ask, no matter who, no matter what, the sacrilegious pederast Founder is the example of lack of scruples.
Despite the end, or the means, or the intention of the donor, money must obtained under andy unscrupulous pretext: scholarships, missions in the Maya area, building schools, ask, ask and ask even for investments. Requesting equity from the women's congregations to make Triple A investments. The whole structure of the Legion (center section apostolate) was created for finance.
In my last letter I told you about the General Chapter of 1992, in the hallway of the third floor of the headquarters of the Directorate General in Rome, Maciel with the index finger pointing to Father Luis Garza Medina (as Vicar General of Maciel) and Blum Jose Perez (Acting General Manager) sentencing "you know, only triple A investments, investments only triple A". One of his partners noted: "Our Father, triple investments are very safe but low yielding." The other third, "except triple investments in weapons and pornography." While all three laughed, Maciel repeated "you know, only investments triple A".
To this end, the author provides an anecdote that shows the perfidy of the Legionary core:
In my last letter I told you about the General Chapter of 1992. In the hallway of the third floor of the headquarters of the Directorate General in Rome, Maciel once pointed his index finger at Fr. Luis Garza (vicar general) and Fr. Jose Blum Perez (general administrator) and said "Remember, only Triple A investments!" One replied "but triple AAA investments don't generate much money" the other said " except for some, triple AAA investments in pornography and arms!" to which Maciel replied "remember I said only triple AAA investments!" and they all fell about laughing...
And now, the difference between prudence and materialism:
147. Saving is a concrete way to live our vow of poverty and relieve the economy of the Legion. Must be a slogan for all permanent, we have to practice with a special delicacy. Fields are diverse: from the responsible use of energy to the care of the Congregation movable to prevent spoilage and unnecessary expenses, Comporta also discerning media apostolate, especially in the case of instruments technology, so use only what is appropriate to the true apostolic needs, avoiding the fascination of fashion or the foolish ostentation.
COMMENT: According to number 147, there was no required vow of poverty. This paragraph clearly reveals the confusing concept of vow of poverty that exists in the Millionaires of Christ. Maciel is an example of caring for the property, his Mercedes and BMW were in perfect condition, vehicles territorial directors and major superiors are spotless. Father Evaristo Sada Derby as Secretary General of Maciel always had the [latest] technology. The superior would discerning what is poverty for him and what is for the subjects.
Next, he provides specific examples of the diverse interests of the Legion -- purportedly to evangelise all peoples, but actually to extend its tenacles into areas that will provide cash, supposedly for the Kingdom. Since paragraph 148 is long, he has divided it in order to provide his own commentary.
148. (1) Finally, we believe that we have not yet sufficiently INSTILLED (inculcate) in the members of the Movement, from ECYD on, how much responsibility is theirs for the financial support of the Movement, and its economic expansion, which results in a greater need for resources.
COMMENT: It is nice that language comes to mean more than what is intended. Inculcate (instill) is a word often used in the Legion. INSTILL means using the heel as a hammer. Goes along with trampling, trampling. The word projects the perfect sense of what made the Legionary superiors, by dint of repetitions performed with the lowest achieving their purposes. INSTILL is press, hammer home the lower and back. Instilling, press, crush to get a response, a responsibility. Press to get money. On top of this pressure must be initiated in children. Stomp to haunt children in the pursuit of money. Unlike Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, ECYD children have to get money in industrial quantities.
148. (2) It is sad to note that in many places, the coverage of the quotas, which would be IMPERATIVE for sustaining ELEMENTAL sections, is very small. Let alone achieving additional donations from members.
COMMENT: The text bears the unmistakable stamp of Father Gabriel Sotres with his terrible pessimism and divine determination like that of Torquemada. With Kantian stiffness, he converts quotas into an basic categorical imperative. It's out of proportion considering that the communal reading of the Gospels has the imperative dues. This obsession with economic know pretext of religious fanaticism.
148 (3) We believe that it is not only a matter of encouraging generosity, but a way of forming consciences to be sensitive to the needs of the Church and the Movement, so that members take responsibility and are willing to forgo, if the case requires, of their own essentials in order to contribute from their own resources to sustain and grow the Legion and Regnum Christi.
[may I just recoil in horror here? is that what you wanted for your children? giselle]
COMMENT: Once again the semantic problem, the problem of meaning, which the Church considers AWARENESS is different from the sense given to the Legion. "Forming Consciences" means generating a guilt complex, forming a bad conscience. "If the case requires" is not facing an emergency objective is the subjective case, the weakness of the person who gets to feel bad if you are deprived of their own property. This is the case of Mrs. Flora Barragán, Bety Canavati and American Gabrielle Mee. The text referring to "support" seems to speak of charities such as nursing homes, homes for AIDS patients, but it is actually sustaining the Anahuac University and colleges of the most expensive on the market.
148 (4) On the other hand, a lot more members of Regnum Christi and ECYD should be involved in fundraising, fostering in them a greater integration with the affective and effective movement. GENERATING WORKS Building and many other initiatives can be promoted to position the Legion and the Movement more able to help significantly to the Church.
COMMENT: INVOLVE together to instill and mystify are words of great use in the Legion and cast a wonderful light on the corruption of language and mentality inherited from Maciel.
The Legion confuses the words "mystic" and "mystify" just as Maciel did. Mystify is cheat, deceive, evade, falsify, distort. Mystic is a personal encounter with the Truth, with God. Indeed the pederast Maciel mystifies mysticism, deformed, mocks the encounter with Truth. For parents of Chapter 2005 of the Faith Mysticism equals pursuit of money (see paragraph 145). The theme of the mystical, the Communiqué devotes Chapter 156-160 number under "mystical, mystic, mystical" and defined in No. 156: "The mystic moves a person toward the ideals the Movement offers". Nothing to do with the sense that mysticism is in the grammar of the Catholic faith. The concept Legionary mysticism is brainwashing, KIDNAPPING OF CONSCIOUSNESS, AWARENESS extrinsic.
ENGAGE is another word that projects the background of the Legion mindset. ENGAGE is becoming wrapped in a personal entangle. Why must it involve children in ECYD fundraising! Human trafficking is PERFECT. Exploitation of minors with permission from their parents and apparent joy of children. Apparent because being trampled or crushed heels and become entangled in a growing demand to provide more money, the first thing is the joy disappears.
INTEGRATION, FULL, are Legionary words, is the corporate name of INTEGER. Integro equals total, all totalitarian. The "affective and effective integration" is what others call "brainwashing", "ABDUCTION OF CONSCIENCE".
"GENERATING WORKS" is the Legionary's term for business. The other side of the apostolate is the WORK GENERATOR. With the money the Legion is in a position to help the Church. Therefore aid is significant in direct relation to the amount of money.
With the reading of paragraphs 143 to 147, relating to the vigorous economy, it can be concluded that there is nothing evangelical in the issues raised. No consecration vows are required to live by what is written by the General Chapter of 2005. You do not need a charism, a gift of God to work as directed.
Brilliant point! All you need is street sense and business savvy -- not ordination or "consecration."
I wonder if parents who signed this communiqué Chapter Chapter read and discussed the text or its content themselves, with their perfect servile obedience. From the tenor of the entire release, it was intended to glorify the sacrilegious founder, the wording of these paragraphs was not of major importance. That allowed will result pages that show through the Legion as a murky business.
Next we see specifics in how the Legion empire was built:
At number 141: "... collaborate actively in the efforts and commitment to the culture persons endowed with more leadership-retreats, conferences, etc. - Constantly evaluating results."
Comment: The Legion reaches out to the rich people. There is no leadership in a popular [middle class, base] neighborhood, has no leader at a hospital in AIDS patients. The want "results" ie money, power. And to do so, they create a religious mask, spiritual terminology, a Catholic scaffolding.
The importance of the numbers shown in the 151: "... will be able to achieve that geometric growth that we all desire." And at 152: "... also finding the largest possible number of children for themselves."
Comment: It is a mentality trade, business, not evangelical. The "growth" and "number" is what counts, not the person, no human rights, no support and service.
In addressing the geographic expansion the number 154 says: "Therefore we must seek the expansion ... with strategic sense, establish them and multiply starting on MAJOR CITIES, defining each AREAS OF INTEREST MORE."
Comment: Legionaries do not care for the poor in cities. The aim is rich areas of rich cities. The vocabulary of Chapter 2005 Communiqué is unbiblical. Their approach is pragmatic, business-like, utilitarian, materialistic.
Then the author points out the moral bankruptcy of the Legion's business approach;
The first is that the Congregation of the Legionaries of Christ is not governed by the economic rules of canon law. Father Maciel and Father Luis Garza Medina agreed not to put goods on behalf of the Congregation for the Vatican could not get their hands, hold them accountable.
For example, in Mexico City, where the Legionaries have many properties, only the name is Legion Field of the parish insignificant next to the Anahuac University [need help clarifying this point].
[The Legion's] property is part of a larger group that owns several companies. And several holdings by various real estate companies are among an international group "Horizons Inc." are traded and sold through shares.
The colleges are not owned by the congregation of the Legionaries. The land is in the name of a real estate company, say "Fuentes Brotantes, corporation", which leases the property to "Flora Barragán civil partnership" and the brand name is "Lomas Summit Institute".
The signatures of the real estate companies are enshrined, [Legionaries rarely unless either of May range--unclear meaning?] As enshrined not recognized by the Vatican have no accountability and higher as the subject to the control of consciousness, society is tranquil. Should the consecrated member of Regnum Christi leave, they will simply falsify your signature and get another. In major corporations like stronger bank accounts is the main signature of Father Luis Garza Medina.
The school pays rent for the property to avoid much profit, because it is a non-profit association. Income is also tax deductible. Other gains disappear under color of scholarships, but there are scholarships for poor students of this school are scholarships that are sent to the central government.
Telethon / CRIT people pay payroll of Regnum Christi. It covers Legionnaries' expenses (telephone, gas, airplanes, hotels). It organizes a budget to pay "Logistics" and command "Fellowship" is actually sending money to the central administration of the legionaries.
No cleaners, there is a contract with a cleaning company, equal to the security features. The Legionary priests or consecrated not paid or payment. The school principal has nothing to do with management. The administrator depends on the territorial administrator and the general administration. All the money will go to school land administration and land management each month get one month ago to school under an annual budget. So if it is not in the budget can not be done. If the director wants to make an improvement in the facilities or equipment you will usually be in the budget, but the director should get donations for investment or improvement. In other words, no tuition fees are reinvested in the school's all going to a mass of money controlled by the center. Parents do not know the finances of the school, do not participate in decisions, there is no kind of patronage, parents should make fundraisers and school improvement.
The Legion does not accept trusts because they don't want to be accountable to anyone. The Legion wants the whole school ADMINISTRATION, seminar works "A" "B" "C" ... "Z"
The Legionary superiors collect and hold the passports of the legionaries and consecrated. Given the amounts of money that moves the concentration of universities and colleges, bank managers are very accessible to requests from administrators legionaries. Members who are extremely open-minded banks like HSBC.
Let's say the government of Mexico has a hundred passports Legionaries and consecrated. They are of different age, nationality and gender. As in Mexico cash deposits over 15 thousand dollars generate 3% tax, management accounts and one hundred Legion opens 14.500 pesos deposited them. This deposit cash achieves almost a million and half dollars without paying the 3%.
This is a simple example of what can be done with so many passports. If this is repeated at the international, open accounts in the name of European, Irish, American, American ... as appropriate. From these small accounts is shipping to accounts in Switzerland or the Vatican.
Please note that Maciel insisted that the Legionnaires were simple and sober in your signature. It is a proven tradition of the Congregation of the Legionaries forge the signatures.
Do not forget that many times the superiors, after a great spiritual motivation and on behalf of the trust in the higher pressure on the religious Legionnaires sign blank sheets.
Making money on the poor, without helping any poor -- a dimension of the Legionary charism?
Father Maciel said that the poor are the best bargain.
So he copied the idea of India and making microloans originated Compartamos Banco. Get donations for "poor schools" through the FOUNDATION TIES. One of his greatest achievements was negotiating with TELEVISA launching the fundraising campaign for Rehabilitation Centers minors we know as Telethon and CRIT. His first move was Helping Hand, knew selling the idea that the Cumbres Institute was expensive because it paid a rich kid's tuition is also paid for a poor child in school helping hand. Few have been opened and ITER HELPING HAND each school is initiating as almost free and gradually rise tuition into a pay school, not as expensive as the Summit, but not free.
Compartamos Banco plagiarized
Using economic woes as an excuse for financial trouble:
Father Maciel, a teacher of plagiarism, learned of the Bank for the Poor in Bangladesh Muhammad Yunus invented in 1976. The concept of microcredit loved Maciel and launched in 1990 with Father Luis Garza Medina, then regional manager of Mexico and a few months pederast Vicar General of the Founder. Maciel and Father Luis Garza Medina cloned the idea, motivation, structure, examples, sentimental effects.
The efforts initiated in 1976 by Muhammad Yunus materialize in founding in 1983 the Bank of the Poor, or Grameen Bank (Rural Bank) The initiative became known in Europe and ocubre 1997, the founder of the Bank of the Poor, was in Paris (France)-UNESCO prize Simon Bolivar International 1996, for his contribution to freedom, independence and dignity of the people of Bangladesh. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 in addition to multiple international awards. Finally in 2010 it appears that the microcredit system has poor results in a terrible way to indebt the poor. In 2011, after a trial of the Central Bank of Bangladesh, Yunus is removed from the leadership of Grameen Microcredit Bank for mismanagement, including tax evasion.
Compartamos Banco is a clone of the Grameen Bank. It began in 1990 as Compartamos Association IAP Program (Private Assistance Institution), so as a nonprofit association. Like the Mano Amiga schools, the start is nonprofit. With the entrepreneurial mindset of Father Luis Garza Medina, the work in 2006 NONPROFIT becomes Banco Compartamos and 2010 in Group Compartamos.
The natural question is whether Compartamos Banco is a plagiarism of the Grameen Bank? Were the vices and mismanagement of the original duplicated in the Legionary clone? One source of evidence concerning Banco Compartamos says yes.
One of the business strategies of the Legion is to say that it is in financial trouble, there is no money because there are many vocations, because it helps Maya in Quintana Roo missions because donations are down or there is a national or global crises.
It is a fact that the Legion does not give money to missions of Quintana Roo, and most of the Legionaries are concentrated in Cancun. The social work of the Legion are letterhead for fundraising.
They say they have no money, but the Legion has 12% of the shares of TVAZTECA. In 2011-2012 American University UNID Development won 600 million pesos. The Legion owns Banco Compartamos and if we do an audit of the Universidad Anahuac and each school will be surprised of the profits. In Mexico there are schools-now called Legionnaires School Network Semper Altius, because Legionaries is brand burned-charged ten thousand pesos monthly tuition. To this is added the cost of the various uniforms, books and many more services fee.
And now to the heart of the Mee case
The superiors say there is no money, but only the inheritance of Mrs. Gabrielle Mee expected $ 60 million. Wills are a big business, as in life every Legionary must give his inheritance to the Legion and if he leaves, they are supposed to return it. Firstly, if he leaves, it is only part refunded. For example if a Legionary inheritance receives a million dollars and after 20 years in the legion out, although I will give the maximum a million dollars, not a cent for interest. But they can say that will be in installments because there is no money, which means that in the next 20 years will receive their inheritance. If it's an inherited house, the Legion collects rents, but not required to maintain, maybe skip paying taxes so that after 20 years, returned home without maintenance.
Some even propose that through the present renewal, they will change the name Legion for its diabolical resonance in the Bible (Mark 5.9, Luke 8.30) and that the Congregation would then be called Fathers of the New Testament -- and by this charism they will get the new, latest and sick and final testament of rich widows.
I wonder what is the vow of poverty? It would be more consistent with the choice of poverty not inherit the religious congregations and refrain from administering estates and wills receive. By the vow of poverty will receive inheritances, By the vow of chastity no one to inherit. By the vow of obedience is given the inheritance to the congregation.
Duplicity concerning scholarships
Between the Institute and the Institute Rosedal Summits in Lomas, Mexico City there is one offices or classrooms for getting scholarships. There Legionaries and consecrated are exclusively dedicated to contacting people, telling them that in Rome there is no hot water, they lack food, vestments needed. It is an industry of the scholarships because those at the seminar or consecrated their parents ask them to send them money. In short, they double charges on one hand to parents and other benefactors.
With these funds buy the homes for children of Maciel, as detailed on the Spanish magazine INTERVIU properties Maciel's daughter, Norma Hilda Rivas Bathrooms in Madrid, Seville and Barcelona for several million euros
Is it possible that the current reform can change all of this, creating a Congregation dedicated to Christ's kingdom using the age-old means of living in this world but not being conformed to it? Doubtful -- especially if the rank and file are completely unaware of how they have been victims of Maciel's fraud.
