I noticed on other blogs that, indeed, it has taken nearly three weeks for the LC to mention that a papal visitation is coming. Didn't they care enough to announce it weeks ago? Are they too incompetent to get a press statement out in a couple of days? Was there going on an (abandoned?) attempt to spin the news or to avoid the vistation?

Three weeks. These guys just don't get it.


I would think it normal for an organization to give internal notice, before releasing the news to the public. Given that translations would need to be made, approved by both parties, press releases coordinated to be released in several countries simultaneously, that it took 3 weeks doesn't seem to be an inordinate period of time for the release.

In any case, this is good news, and one would hope that the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi emerge purified and renewed after collaborating fully in the apostolic visitation.

Maybe so, R, maybe so.

A friend also reminds me not to take dates on Roman letters too seriously. Stuff gets back-dated, left on a desk for a week, and sent to a post office that might, or might not, open for several days running. I know that some stuff gets dated X because "Gee, wouldn't it be nice if this came out on the feast of So-and-So." WhaddawaytarunnaChurch. :)
