New Archbishop of L.A. a Spanish Member of Opus Dei

Com­ment: With Latin influ­ence in the U.S. ris­ing with the growth of the Amer­i­can Span­ish-speak­ing pop­u­la­tion, it is both inter­est­ing and sig­nif­i­cant that the Pope select­ed a mem­ber of the reac­tionary, fas­cist-con­nect­ed Opus Dei [1] to be the Arch­bish­op of Los Ange­les. This appoint­ment con­tin­ues a pat­tern of con­ver­gence [2] between the Vat­i­can and Opus Dei dat­ing to the ascen­sion of John Paul II to the Papa­cy.
