Levada warns against 'sect' operating in the Church
#9
As Cetil pointed out, the warning is against a splinter group that went rogue. Under the 1992 decree which is on the Vatican website in a few different languages (not English), 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 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." Most of the order seems to have accepted these corrections, but some went off on their own.
