VATICAN CITY — The pope’s envoy running the disgraced Legion of
Christ religious order says the 1,000-plus rules governing the cult-like
life of some of its members are invalid and will be whittled down to a
core set of norms.
The rules that the Legion’s consecrated women and men live
under cover everything from how to eat a piece of bread (tear off
bite-size pieces, don’t bite into it) to what they can watch on
television to how they interact with outsiders and family members.
