Opus Dei. Part-Two.

Today the Opus Dei group is estimated to have a membership of 1850 priests, 83,641 laity, 55% of the estimated total membership of 85,491 are women. The OD is lead from Rome by Bishop Javier Echevarria Rodriguez. (Vatican yearbook 2004).

In 1940 the OD was accused in Spain of committing heresy, during the reign of Dictator Franco, but they were able to continue their activities up until 1950, when the Vatican allowed them to be a registered group.

Today the founder Escriva has been described as the Catholic 20th Century Loyola, who founded the Jesuits.
