The following is an excerpt from the Spero News report:
As a religious congregation of the Catholic Church, I can assure you that we are acting, and will act, with the utmost awareness of our mission to serve men and to responsibly fulfill our civil and ecclesial duties in the management of our institutions.
We will soon discuss with our attorneys if such responsible management also demands that we take legal action against slanderous publications such as this article. There is no doubt the lamentable events, which we have recently reported about the life of our founder, are grotesque, however, we are also determined to deal decisively with this reality and in close collaboration with the Holy See (see our statement of March 25, 2010).
We look to the future with great confidence. I have no doubt about what our task is: to build our lives on the rock of Peter, with the strength of the Risen Christ and the help of many people of good will.
