The New York Review of Books: God in the Hands of Angry Sinners:
"The Legion of Christ, an international religious order, is one of several very conservative Catholic groups on which the current pope has showered favors, allowing its members to operate outside the normal structures of dioceses or traditional religious orders (to the dismay of some authorities in both realms)."
That's not true. Only Opus Dei has been made a personal prelature. The Legion of Christ is simply a religious congregation of pontifical right, just like many others.
