Communion and Liberation movement - Dmorgan - 08-14-2011

I was reading an article on Chiesa (http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/1349017?eng=y) and saw the name of this movement. Went to their website (http://www.clonline.org/FirstPage.htm). I can not get a firm handle on what this group is about. anyone out there no of this group? are they in the same camp as "The Way" and other splinter groups operating within the Church today?

They are a strange group.  I think that many of their members have quite good intentions and are often very good neo-Catholic types, but the movement itself is centered around the writings of the founder of the group.  Their language is totally cut-off from traditional theology.  They employ words and phrases which make the novel language in VII seem like it was written by Pius X.

Here is a recent quotation which came out of "CL", as it's called, that has given me the willies.

Quote:For us faith is not an ethical code nor an ideology but an experience: an
encounter with Christ present here and now in the Christian community.
Christian faith gives us a freedom and a passion for living that express
themselves above all in the form of questions as we face reality, and an
inexhaustible openness to everything human.

It was a favourite of John Paul II and the left ranks it right up with Opus Dei as a 'danger'.
