(quote) Steven-706921 said: There is no real reform possible for the legion because there was never a spiritual charism for them to begin with. Fr. Maciel was a pervert and a charlatan, and he couldn't bequeath a charism because one can't give what one does not have, aka the Principle of Sufficient Reason.
Fr. Berg, the head of the FSSP, and others have advised the dissolution of the Legion. Their continued existence will be a scandal for the Church.
Based on this qoute from the story,they are comparing the treatment of the F.F.I. tothe Legion.A big difference in treament based on their expressions in the Liturgy etc. "Thankfully, Maciel only abused male novices and fathered babies... If only he had introduced the Traditional Latin Mass, then the Legion would have been abolished, and their buildings burned down, and the earth beneath them salted."
