The New York Review of Books: God in the Hands of Angry Sinners:

"Escriva was and Maciel is a very 'preconciliar' man. Pope John Paul II has already canonized, on the fastest of imaginable fast tracks, Escriva. Maciel is still alive at eighty-three, but his followers expect his canonization too. (His uncle has already been beatified by John Paul.)"

Unmentioned is that his Uncle was a Bishop during the persecution of the Christeros and the outlawing of the Catholic church in Mexico. Also, Maciel, who Wills previously notes was often criticized by church leaders for being too progressive before the Council.
