† Rest in Peace Father Marcial Maciel, LC

Father Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ passed away yesterday January 30, 2008. Father Maciel died at the age of 87 of natural causes in the United States of America.

Father Maciel was the founder of the schools I have attended almost all my life. Since preschool, elementary, middle, and high school at the "Instituto Cumbres" and in college at the "Universidad Anáhuac". The Legionaries of Christ have been an important part of my formation.

I just wish to extend my prayers and condolences for the Maciel family and to all the community of the Legionaries of Christ and the "Regnum Christi" Movement.

Rest in peace, you will be remembered thanks to all the people's life you touched with the Legion.
I'll always be proud to be part of something that wants (and will) make this a better world.
