Opus Dei (Latin: “Work of God”) is a Roman Catholic lay and clerical organization whose members seek personal Christian perfection and strive to implement Christian ideals and values in their occupations and in society as a whole. Theologically conservative, Opus Dei accepts the teaching authority of the church without question and has long been the subject of controversy; it has been accused of secrecy, cultlike practices, and political ambitions.
Means employed by Opus Dei
In 1986, Belgian police  made a report on the organziation, and included an analysis of the means employed by Opus Dei:
1 Rallying the ruling elite to their causes.
2) Recruit the future elite within universities and higher schools and indoctrinate them towards the goal pursued.
3) Create disinformation through the media that are acquired by them.
4) Using vile men to achieve their goals (mafia, P2 and etc.)
5) Disorganize the authorities.
6) Create a climate of insecurity among the population.
7) Changing traditions, and ridicule them.
8) Compromise leaders unrelated to their causes by any means.
9) Corrupt young people who do not share their ideas in a way that make them harmless (drugs, prostitution etc...)
10) Destabilize the states in order to be able to establish a reorganization conducive to its goals by installing leaders who are theirs. (and this by any means including terror, RTL)
11). Eliminate any obstacle that opposes their goals in a radical way.
In 1990, following the revelation of Operation Gladio in Italy, the Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende, published an account of Denmark's Gladio network, revealing that Opus Dei had played a central role in the setting up of Gladio in the whole of Europe:
Berlingske Tidende can reveal that Absalon is the Danish branch of the international Gladio network. This has been confirmed by a member of Absalon to Berlingske Tidende who wishes at present to remain unnamed,' a Danish daily newspaper sensationally headlined its discoveries in 1990.
The source, named Q by the newspaper, confirmed what Colby had revealed in his book. 'Colby's story is absolutely correct. Absalon was created in the early 1950s,' the source Q related. The network, according to Q, was composed of right-wing men in order to guarantee staunch anti-Communism. 'Colby was member of the world spanning laymen catholic organization Opus Dei, which , using a modern term, could be called right-wing.
Opus Dei played a central role in the setting up of Gladio in the whole of Europe and also in Denmark,' Q claimed. 'The leader of Gladio was Harder who was probably not a Catholic. But there are not many Catholics in Denmark and the basic elements making up the Danish Gladio were former World War II resistance people – former prisoners of Tysk, Vestre Faengsel, Froslevlejren, Neuengamme and also of the Danish Brigade.
In 2012, Santiago Vidal, magistrate of the Provincial Court of Barcelona, claimed that one third of the Spanish judiciary are members of Opus Dei.
|Seymour Hersh||“'We're going to change mosques into cathedrals. And when we get hold of all the oil, nobody' s going to give a damn.' That's an attitude that pervades, I'm here to say, a large percentage of the Special Operations Command, the Joint Special Operations Command and Stanley McChrystal, the one who got in trouble because of the article in Rolling Stone, and his follow-on, a Navy admiral named McRaven, Bill McRaven — all are members or at least supporters of Knights of Malta. McRaven attended, so I understand, the recent annual convention of the Knights of Malta they had in Cyprus a few months back in November. They're all believers — many of them are members of Opus Dei. They do see what they are doing — and this is not an atypical attitude among some military — it's a crusade, literally. They see themselves as the protectors of the Christians. They're protecting them from the Muslims in the 13th century. And this is their function. They have little insignias, they have coins they pass among each other, which are crusader coins, and they have insignia that reflect that, the whole notion that this is a war, it's culture war.”||Seymour Hersh||January 2011|
|The Philippines||“1995, Catholics for a Free Choice, 'Opus Dei: The Pope's Right Arm in Europe': "The Hanns-Seidel Foundation, based in Germany, is accredited with and receives funding from the European Union. The foundation is linked with the CSU (the Bavarian Christian Democrat) party of the late Fritz Pirkl, who was in the European Parliament and served on the boards of directors of Hanns-Seidel and the Rhine-Danube Foundation. Together with Limmat, Hanns-Seidel has funded Opus Dei’s extensive operations in the Philippines, including the Centre for Research and Communication. The centre’s "self-declared task is to form the future economic and political elite of the country," writes Opus Dei critic Peter Hertel. "Under President Corazon Aquino, Opus members have put a decisive stamp on the country’s Constitution."”||Joël van der Reijden|

The Roman Catholic Church's claim to be the one and only authentic 'Church of Christ on Earth' does not exempt them from exploitation by deep politicians. This article powerfully demonstrates both the Catholic Church's power and its susceptibility to the machinations of Mammon. As they say in South America, "When the CIA goes to church, it doesn't go to pray."|
