An Inside Look at the Secretive Catholic Organization Made Famous by "The Da Vinci Code Is Opus Dei a spiritual institute dedicated to preserving Catholic orthodoxy in the face of modernist assault? Or is it an independent society, a "church within the Church," promoting its own allegiances and preserving an antiquated set of spiritual and penitential practices? This small organization wields enormous power within the Catholic Church. Due to its status as a "personal prelature" of the pope, it operates independently of local Church authority. The influence of Opus Dei has only grown since this book first appeared. Opus Dei's founder, St. Josemari a Escriva , was beatified and canonized over the vehement objections of many in the Catholic Church. Powerful members of the Vatican hierarchy, including the pope's own spokesman, are members. The bestselling novel "The Da Vinci Code has made millions aware of Opus Dei. This classic investigation is needed now more than ever. It tells the real story of this mysterious organization -- a probing but balanced examination of the organization, its charismatic founder, its practices, and its effect upon the Catholic Church at large.
