Sir: As I read Paul Vallely's article "What in the name of God is going on here?" (22 May) about the Catholic organisation Opus Dei, a passage of scripture came to my mind.

In the Acts of the Apostles, we read that when some of the apostles were taken prisoner and tried, a pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, held in honour by all the people, warned the Sanhedrin about condemning them. His argument was as follows: "If this plan or this undertaking is of men, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be opposing God" (Acts V, 38).

Yours faithfully,

ALISON BIRKETT
