The full inteview is in Spainish. I have loosely translated Fr. Delgados's response to the following question:
"Have many Legionaries left the Congregation after learning about the secret life of the founder, Marcial Maciel?"
It goes without saying that if only one were to have left it hurts to lose a vocation or a brother.
There are about 850 priests in the Legion and, since early last year, about ten Legionaries have made the decision to leave the congregation to join the diocesan clergy, though not in all cases for the same reasons. About the same number are living and working temporarily out of our Legionary communities, in a period of reflection.
What we have experienced is a tremendous blow. Any action taken by any Legionary, having to deal with this situation, is perfectly understandable.
What we have done – those of us who stay and those who have chosen to leave – is to pray to God to enlighten about renewing our commitment. This is something no doubt we all have had to do after learning all that we have learned. And, I believe, any decision taken in prayer before the Lord about what He wants is a good decision.
