Irish timeline additions

Thanks to the eminent Paul Lennon for contributing to the Legionary timeline some early Irish Legionary history from 1961 to 1971, drawn from his personal experience and his 2008 memoir "Our Father, Who Art in Bed."


  1. The real history of the Legion of Christ has yet to be written. The "histories" that exist were written by Legionaries, members of the Regnum Christi or paid employees of the Legion for the "groupies". My memoir -recently retitled "Our Father Maciel who art in bed, a Naive and Sentimental Dubliner in the Legion of Christ" is only the second independently written book in the English language about Maciel and the Legion! The first one is Berry and Renner's "Vows of Silence". At the back of my book I reference several other books on the subject that have appeared in Spanish by Mexican, Spanish and South American authors.

  2. One may find carefully researched and nuanced fragments of Legion/Maciel history on REGAIN, INC.
    Of particular relevance is material pertaining to the 1956 Vatican Investigation into Fr. Marcial Maciel. The present investigation, therefore, is not the first; and it is hoped the Vatican will not make the same mistakes this time.
