"A letter to the heads of bishops conferences by Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith chief Cardinal William Levada claims some members of the movement, including priests, carry out "activities that disturb the ecclesiastical community"."

Does anyone know what this is? It doesn't really say what's wrong with them.

Is this the same movement in the above link, that I have provided?  It appears benign.  I am uncertain as to any potential abberative behaviour on their part.
Here is a better article:  http://www.catholicherald.org/news/newsi...emid=14304

It appears that "certain members" of Opus Angelorum are promoting teaching outside of Catholic doctrine. I have heard that most of these folks are in Austria/Germany.

I don't think that there is a problem with Opus Angelorum in Michigan.

The priests in question left or were expelled from the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross and present themselves as the authentic Opus Angelorum.

And, here is information from a blogger who is very familiar with OA in Detroit:  http://www.te-deum.blogspot.com/
maybe they are pushing for the canonization of Robbie Williams (the singer)
The group linked to by Virgil is perfectly fine. They had some problems, most accepted correction from the Church, but some went rogue--those are the ones being warned about.

Under the 1992 decree, the main issues seemed to be assigning names to certain angels based on private revelation and then using those names in consecrations, which is said in the decree to be foreign to the Scripture and Tradition (a 1777 decree of Benedict XIV is cited). The properly reformed group did have a consecration prayer approved by the Church in 2000. There also seemed to be problems with "remote administration" of sacraments, unauthorized exorcisms, adding prayers to the liturgy that directly referred to their erroneous theories, and a problematic "promise of silence."

Like I said, the group linked to by Virgil accepted the corrections with docility, while a few others continued spreading their erroneous practices.



Is the Vatican warning the parishoners in Austria also of the heretical views of their bishops, hmmmmmmmmmmm  Cardinal Schoenborn for instance.

I guess they're okay with those.
