Is 1P5's Skojec "Resurrecting Josemaría Escrivá & Opus Dei?"

Francis, who is famous for destroying the traditional faithful order the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, said he was "delighted" with the Legionaries of Christ founded by a gay pervert:

"Francis said, 'I am delighted to welcome you new priests of the Legionaries of Christ.'"
(Herald Malaysia Online, "Pope greets newly ordained Legionaries of Christ at General Audience," December 15, 2016)

The Remnant wrote that Francis attacked the traditionalist Friars to get their money and for "ideological" anti-traditionalist Catholicism reasons.
(Remnant, "Follow the Money... or the Ideology: Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate Update, June 6, 2017)

Might the apparently money-strapped Vatican and Francis be "delighted" with the pro-Francis Legionaries because they had "an annual budget of $650 million... assets of approximately $1 billion"?
(The Irish Times, "The 'gangster' superior, the Irish priest and the wealthy widow," November 11, 2017)

How many money-strapped Francis conservative and Francis traditionalist news outlets and organizations may possibly be getting money from the pro-Francis Legionaries or other wealthy pro-Francis so-called conservative orders such as Opus Dei?

Why are Francis conservative and Francis traditionalist new outlets and organizations not more transparent about who some of their large donors are?

It is possible and even probable that they're not receiving money from these pro-Francis orders. If this is so then it would be to their benefit to at least publicly state they aren't receiving funding from them.

Are there any Francis traditionalists who formerly had ties with the Legionaries that "give favorable reference[s] to Opus Dei"?

This website in the post "Ex-Legion of Christ Steve Skojec of One Peter Five Resurrecting Josemaría Escrivá & Opus Dei?" lists Francis traditionalist Skojec's One Peter Five's "favorable reference[s] to Opus Dei":

What's up with the all the Escrivá quotes?

Can you imagine if the quotes were from  Marcial Maciel? 


I guess traditionalists now think Escrivá is worthy of quoting. Funny, back in the day most trads hated  Josemaría Escrivá & Opus Dei?

There is zero evidence, that I know of, that Skojec's One Peter Five is taking money from the Legionaries of Christ. In fact, Skojec has condemned the Legionaries.

Also, there is no evidence, that I know of, that One Peter Five receives money from Opus Dei. It is just possible that Skojec's personal spirituality is "favorable" to Opus Dei's Vatican II Novus Ordo spirituality.

It is obvious that Skojec needs to be transparent on who are his big money donors.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Thank you for bringing this up. My thoughts have touched on this, also.

I look at it this way, some trads could considered to be in the PR/Marketing business. Their clients hire them to provide a narrative to their audience. It pays well.

When you add in the need for subterfuge, that's where previous critical articles come in very handy, for the PR person can point to them as proof and at the same time gain a reputation as fair/impartial and worthy of trust.

It's very clever. Marketers and PR people have many such techniques to manipulate public perception.

Funds should only be given to Catholic media supporting the removal of "Pope" Francis. Any Catholic media not calling for his removal should be considered enemies of orthodox Catholicism.
