First time post

Post by a Catholic on Thu Mar 22, 2012 4:35 pm

I'm " a Catholic."

You don't look ready for visitors just yet so I will check back. I did look at the website you are working on and I see you have made it much easier to read the Opus Dei rules. Maybe you already know, but the link at the top that looks like a title doesn't work on some of the pages. (I did not check them all.)
Good luck and I will come back.

Hello! Welcome. Yes, I know about the internal link problem with the Code titles. I have a fix I hope will be done tonight or tomorrow latest so I can get started on the topic pages.

Thank you for posting, I see I have to alter the default avatar. I hope you will come back after the first of the month or in a few weeks when the site is launched.

It is not simple to answer. If you are in Opus Dei and understand how it really works and think they are right, then it's "legit" as you say.

But there are people who feel it is a cult and people who have been abused by Opus Dei members. See: http://www.odan.org/ Many people in Opus Dei don't really know what it is. Most have not read the Constitutions or Statutes that define it. The Opus Dei Guidebook is not done, but you can read those on it as of now. Link at top right of the forum.

They do operate in secret by their own rules and always have, with part being purposely public. So does the FBI. Some people have been abused by the clergy of the Church, or by members of the FBI. Sometimes the Church operates secretly, like in China.

So who is legit and who is not?

Are we supposed to intriduce ourself? Sorry if I was supposed to.



This is a place where you can read stories from people from Spain where they know more a bout it.

Its in spanish but google i guess translates it, so sometimes its sort of dumb sounding but maybe worth a look.

I guess I can't post a link yet. its forumopusDOTcomSLASHenSLASHindexDOThtm

I wonder if I should care that you circumvented the link ban? Mad I don't really care, it came with the site. Neutral I think it's anti-spam.

Here is the link: http://forumopus.com/en/index.htm

I don't have time to look at it. I see the new default avatar is working, so thanks for that. I also see the normal "quote" button will multiquote automatically, which is not good.

Sorry, I didn't expect visitors for a while and I'm still interested in the bug things.

I do welcome you and thank you for posting a link to a place I didn't know existed. There will be a special link page at the site and probably a sidebar list here, once I get a sidebar!

I'm sorry. I see it is Tuesday and you posted a couple days ago now. I don't mean to be rude and perhaps I should have closed this forum until I really was ready to open the site. I'd like to answer your question, but I am too busy answering it by making the website. I hope you will come back after Easter when I plan to have most of the site up and running.

I think everyone has to decide for themselves what Opus Dei is. It says about itself that its purpose is to make Opus Dei Catholics of everyone in the world. Opus Dei, which is run by priests exclusively at the highest level, will then be the world's government. There are many Catholics who think this is a good idea.

My reaction is personal to me pale

Your reaction might be this Very Happy

I think what Opus Dei is, depends on what you believe.
