Their "Reality" could not be any clearer
The following Post was brought to our attention recently:
... I would suggest that anyone interested in Opus Dei read "Beyond the Threshold", which is written by Maria del Carmen Tapia, who was the head of the women's branch. She has been severely maligned since the publication of the book.
We chose to investigate Mrs. Tapia's book to see how closely it agreed with what we have already exposed about The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei.
The book was not available but we found out why, which in itself, tells the whole story.
The largest bookstore in the city was first visited. After much stumbling we were informed that the book, which was dubbed a novel, was out of print.
A second and well established bookstore, a husband and wife operation, was visited. At first he could not remember anything about the book, then, suddenly all came back to him and pouring out of his mouth in a torrent!
He said that he had featured the book in the window of the store. Shortly thereafter, a gentleman, who identified himself as a physician of the area, came into the store and asked the owner to step aside with him for a chat. The visitor informed the shopkeeper that he belonged to a large group of professionals in this particular city and that, if he did not remove Mrs. Tapia's book from the window, they would boycott his bookstore.
Later on the shopkeeper wanted to get additional copies. He called the publisher in Spain and was told that it was out of print, never to be printed again by them. Upon inquiring, the shopkeeper was informed by the publishing house that, after the original publication of the book, they received a call (or visit - we do not know for certain) informing them that a number of authors who were having their books published by said publishing house would take them elsewhere if they ever printed Mrs. Tapia's book again.
Thus... the Spanish original version of Maria del Carmen Tapia's book Al Atravesar el Umbral [Beyond the Threshold] was killed.
We Thank God for being able to bring to
you, at a worldwide level, this information as well as
a sample of Mrs. Tapia's book (1). We encourage you
to obtain it and review it. Having been the head of the Women's Branch of the
Opus Dei, we are confident that Mrs. Tapia will give you all the background
that you could possibly need so that, in conjunction with what we have
published in the Name of God, you will be able to appreciate the gravity and
danger that The Prelature of the Opus Dei presents to the Roman Catholic
Church and the world at large.
For those who are having difficulty in believing what Ms. Tapia reported and wish to ascribe it to the "ranting of a hysterical woman", there are volumes of supporting and enhancing her revelations from individuals and clergy of greater stature than Ms. Tapia. Just take a look at this brief Index (2).
We take this opportunity to remind the reader that the former FBI Director (3), Mr. Louis Freeh, is associated with such organization. This is also the case with members of other key U.S. Intelligence agencies, like the CIA (4).
These same bookstores, in this particular city and throughout Spain, carry and display books covering subjects from Satanism, New Age, Tarot Card Readings to merciless criticism of prominent figures from the Roman Catholic Church: from H.H. John Paul II on down. However, no one complains about it and much less coerce the bookstores to discontinue displaying and selling them.
We saw the same "syndrome" when the Portuguese magazine VISAO (5) published a critical cover story on the Opus Dei. In this occasion, Opus Deites did not tire of writing to VISAO in defense of their group - whereas any attack of the Catholic Faith published by VISAO goes unchallenged.
Curiously enough, the offices of VISAO went up in flames shortly thereafter and since then VISAO has lost their appetite to criticize the Opus Dei.
They only defend their own... and obviously God and His
servants are not counted amongst them.
We thank and Praise God for
placing these gems of disinformation in our hands; as we have said many times,
even satan has to serve God! Of course, for those who do not have eyes
to see and ears to hear, Ms. Tapia alleged retraction will be a vindication
for what they want to believe. This in turn, using the same reasoning
that Jesus used when explaining to His disciples why He spoke if parables
[Matthew 13: 9-17], will prevent them form conversion
since they do not belong to the Father.
those who indeed have eyes to see and ears to
hear (6), will immediately see through the disinformation sham and, even if
they were temporarily misled by the false piety of Opus Dei, return to the
true Way, Jesus Christ and His Gospel, and not the falsified "Way" published
by Jose María Escrivá.
