We must not forget either that the greatest (in terms of damage to the National Security) Spy in the U.S. was FBI ex-Special Agent Robert P. Hanssen, a devout and active member of the Opus Dei; just as was his superior, the Former FBI Director Louis Freeh.
Without having to stretch any of the information available to prove a point , it seems that all pieces continue to fall in place. [Please refer to related Notes just recently added to one related document and then another related document.
Today we have
been notified that the Canonization of Escrivá, the founder of
Opus Dei, has been set for June 26, 2002. We must view such event
as the reverse of what took place with Joan of Arc. The Church first
burned Joan of Arc for witchcraft
only to later raise her to the altars as Saint Joan of Arc.
Neo-Nazi Net Within the Catholic Church
Spain's EL MUNDO publishes (1) a news report:
Austrian Police investigates an extreme right net within the Catholic Church
Its key sections are translated below:
Publication: Spain's EL MUNDO, November 19, 1995, p.44, (1)
According to the Austrian weekly "News" the Austrian State Police are investigating an extreme right net within the alpine Catholic Church.
The net is camouflaged behind the innocent façade of a religious order and two religious organizations anchored in the vicinity of St.Polten, a small community located west of Vienna.
The Minor's Court warned the parents so that they would not send their sons to the meetings of this group (2) since, according to a spokesman of the court, "our evidence indicates that they are closely related with the Catholic Sect Opus Angelorum and with organizations of extreme right".
The objective of these organizations is 'power'. Their message: discipline, order and violence. All of them are related in some form to Opus Angelorum, a fanatical organization whose members are "chosen by God to fight against demons and evil."
To complement the information contained in such article the following personal commentaries will be added:
(a) In Fátima, Portugal, there is a monastery of "The Order of The Holy Cross" which Miguel de Portugal (M de P) visited in 1992. M de P spoke at length with Fr. Willibald Zenkert, one of the principals of Opus Angelorum, who related the difficulties that they were having in Austria. The difficulties were presented as if the Opus Angelorum was being persecuted for their piety.
Said order promotes, on a worldwide level, the Opus Angelorum (3) the 'Work of the Angel', referred to in the news report of El Mundo as the 'Obra del Angel'. During his visit m de P witnessed Fr. Willibald Zenkert make a presentation about Angels to a group of Spanish pilgrims. Notice was taken of his thinly disguised arrogance and lack of true piety. It all seemed very odd considering their apparent professed piety. m de P was prevented by Fr. Zenkert from distributing to the pilgrims free St. Michael the Archangel prayer cards after the presentation.
(b) Although said order does not broadcast the fact that they are an another façade (4) of The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei, all in that monastery indicated it.
(c) The Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, headed by Cardinal Ratzinger, some years ago pronounced itself against some of the practices within Opus Angelorum. However, Opus Angelorum essentially brushed off the negative commentaries and continued their sect-like activities.
On other matters...
Opus Dei Political Allies Promoting Abortion En Masse
On another article published in the Spanish prestigious daily ABC (5) we read:
"...responsibles of the municipality of Pamplona have organized the distribution of abortifacients... in Pamplona. .... there was no qualified personnel and the pills were being distributed without prescriptions nor medical supervision. ... The CDN party governs the Pamplona City Hall by virtue of an alliance with socialists, communists,... A large number of CDN Party members are connected with Opus Dei."
A Possible Involvement With Government Endorsed Drug Trafficking
ABC further reports (6) that a Peruvian Drug Kingpin confessed that during 1991 and 1992 he had the support of the National Intelligence Service; specifically from an advisor to President Fujimori.
It is indeed interesting that said Drug Kingpin code name was "Vatican" and that Perú is a country which has the highest percentage of Bishops openly associated with the Opus Dei.
El Pais, in an April 4, 1997 article (7), reports that "A councilman of the Partido Popular (read: Opus Dei Party) turned out to be a member of an international drug traffic ring. ... he was arrested because of his relationship with a drug bust that yielded 4,000 Kg of marijuana."
Is it all just an unhappy coincidence? May the reader be the judge.
Opus Dei Politicians With Anti Semitic History
On another news report by IPS (7) on July 11, 1966 we read:
"...Justice Minister (of Argentina)... stepped down in the midst of a scandal created by recent revelations of his anti-Semitic past."
"Barra resigned after two local newspapers recently revealed his participation in an anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi organization, his naming to a university post under the directorship of a known Nazi, and his stay in prison for attacking a synagogue."
"Barra has been a government official since the start of Menem's first term in 1989..."
"His current ties with the ultra conservative international Catholic organization Opus Dei, put him at the forefront of the official campaign against the legalization of abortion."
