Fr. Marcial Maciel: More revelations

Jason Berry, the dogged New Orleans reporter who has helped to uncover so much about the clergy sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church, has an update on the case of the late Fr. Marcial Maciel Degollado, founder of the Legionaries of Christ. Berry's story appears on the web site of the Global Post New questions about Legionaries of Christ. A women living in Spain who claims to be the mother of Fr. Maciel's daughter is speaking out and other people have come forward claiming to be the adult children of Macial.

Jason Berry is coauthor of Vows of Silence, a book about Maciel, and producer of a documentary of the same name, "Vows of Silence."

A number of bloggers have been following this story, as well. Here are a couple: The EX-LC Blog and Patrick Madrid.
