To my Legionary friends:
We have all suffered a great deal with the crisis of the Legionaries of Christ. But the Legion is a large ironclad warship of the Church in the battle for the evangelization of the world, and we can not allow it to go under.
Many religious orders have gone through crisis and overcome them.
But the reforms have been made those who remain, not those who have left.
Sometimes people do not fulfill their duties properly, but people come and go and the INSTITUTION must persevere with our support and collaboration.
No doubt that those who have left have done so with good intentions and honestly.
But it my opinion that more can be achieved from inside rather from outside the congregation.
It is not impossible to return.
With very best wishes,
Jorge Loring S.I.
