Opus Dei is a secretive ultraconservative Catholic organization founded in Spain in 1928 by a priest, Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer. It is active in the US and elsewhere. It was given a bit of a slam in Dan Brown's book and movie The Da Vinci Code. Numerous books have exposed its cultlike operation.
Abundant info on the group is available from the Opus Dei Awareness Network (ODAN), Box 4333, Pittsfield, MA 01202. See their web site --- firstname.lastname@example.org
