"Saints and Schemers: Opus Dei and Its Paradoxes," by Joan Estruch. Translated by Elizabeth Ladd Glick. 352 pages. New York: Oxford University Press. $27.50On May 17, 1992, more than 200,000 people, including 33 cardinals and 200 bishops, assembled under the hot sun in Saint Peter's square to watch Pope John Paul II beatify Monsignor Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer. It was a mere 17 years after Msgr. Escriva's death and seemed to betoken a swift ascent to sainthood for the founder of Opus Dei, the secretive traditionalist organization within the Catholic Church whose ties reach from Franco Spain to Latin America and the Philippines, with allies as various as Belgium's Queen Fabiola, Italy's Northern League and influential members of the Vatican curia.
