Thanks to a reader for reminding me about this “secret society” and the lengths “conservative Catholics” will go to protect their brand even as the church itself pretends to play ball.
In case you can’t get past the paywall at the above link, here is the AP version:
Another reader sent me this information a few years ago, including the fact that this “nonprofit” was being investigated by the Michigan AG in 2018 and 2019. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/tags/5781/opus-bono-sacerdotii.
Yet another reader and I wondered aloud how defrocked priest Gary Berthiaume managed to stay at a motel for many weeks while he was awaiting trial for criminal sexual conduct charges in Michigan. A judge would not let him return to Illinois while he awaited trial. Poor, poor “Fr.” Berthiaume, convicted pedophile. Maybe he had a benefactor like this group. It’s pretty sickening.
