I’ve Had Major Questions On Opus Dei Since The Movie ‘There Be Dragons’ Came Out

Catholic Opus Dei modernism heresy communism

So, what were my questions?

Who did they support during the Spanish Civil War?

Josemaria Escriva, who died in 1975, hurtled over the various stages of the beatification process and was pushed up to the altar with amazing speed: 17 years. Certainly, the media seized upon this sensational aspect of the event, so rarely seen in Church history. For instance, think of the time it took – 170 years – to define the heroic virtue of an authentic popular apostle like Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort. 
Thus, logic based on Church history prompts attempting to discover a reason justifying the urgency surrounding the introduction of Msgr. Escriva’s beatification process, and its acceleration. His cause was opened in 1981, six years after his death.  (more...)
