"The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei" founded in 1928 by Josemaria Escriva. It is a society composed catholic members and aimed to spread the holiness into the life of ordinary people. The mentioned society is officially recognized by the Catholic Church.
Today the number of the members of Opus Dei is reached up to 90.000 and most of these members are working in higher rank posiitions in their countries even some of them ministers and governors. Actually they function the doctrines of the Catholic Church. They target the ordinary catholics and try to emphasize them the teachings of the saints. Although it is approved by the Catholic Church on 1950, most members do not announce their membership to the public.
Was it Illuminati or Freemasons which forced the Catholic Church to form such an organization in fact? As Illuminati is a secret underground society which in the history had problems with the Church itself. And perhaps the ongoing rivalry since the Knights Templars events made the Church to establish this organization in a way to protect itself.
