I am by all accounts a liberal and no fan of Opus Dei, but will be the first to admit that all that they do they do well. Anyone who knows Church History knows that Opus Dei is simply in the twentieth and twenty-first century what the Society of Jesus was in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. And like the Society of Jesus Opus Dei will, over time, become very main-line in the Church. Get over the paranoia about them. I would choose Gonzaga over The Heights, but have no dobut that The Heights gives a first rate education to their students and will raise up a generatio of faithful yet critical thinking Catholics
