The Legionaries of Christ remove references to Marcial Maciel
It is part of a decree signed by Father Alvaro Corcuera, director general of the Legionaries of Christ.
Significant dates in the life of Maciel such as his birth or baptism will not be observed. Although, the day of his death on January 30, will be devoted to prayer.
The decree also states that members of the congregation can retain, in private, a photograph of Maciel and his writings may be used in sermons.
