Alfonso Carlos de Borbón
We believe that this work by Alfonso Carlos de
Borbón on the
reality of Opus Dei is of such historical, religious and social value
that we have digitized, and translated into English the first part of
the book which came
to us in .pdf format. The product of this digitalization and
translation is in .html
format, so that the sections can be easily copied and/or downloaded.
An important aspect of this work, with which we cannot
agree, is that
Mr. de Borbón seems to refer to the Jews as if they were a
homogeneous monolith, that is, they are all the same and have the same
This would be the same, and as wrong, as considering all
Catholics as if
they constituted a homogenous monolith with Opus Dei and shared
Escriva's agenda - which could not be further from the truth.
There is no doubt that there is a Jewish faction that
Opus Dei, and that is what Mr. de Borbón rightly wants to
expose. This Jewish faction obviously does not know the true
disposition that Opus Dei has towards anything related to Jews -
practicing or not.
Editors of the English Version
translation of the original material
The author's discovery of three new dimensions in the
Opus Dei gives a glimpse of the key to its rapid ascent, its financial
hegemony and its power in the shadows.
The book captures the suggestive and hidden face of the
"Work of God"
as a destructive and totalitarian sect, showing us the silenced blight
of an artificial and design life - such was the existence of Esciva -
and finally paragons Opus Dei with the "semen of Abraham" or "Jewish
soul" which, in its connections and dependencies, culminates as a
thesis of an interpretative, serious and truthful work.
The unheard of and the surprise make reading this work an
adventure. To live the episodes of this book with imagination is to
protect oneself from being fooled and deceived by them.
Its reading is not recommended for faint of heart.
