When you go off into the wilderness for forty days and forty nights to form your own religious cult or sub-group, it is vitally important to give it a name that:

a) sticks
b) suggests your purpose
c) attracts potential converts or members.

Meet Jean-Gaston Tremblay and Fr Michel Collin, two ardent Catholics; the latter so ardent that in 1950 he declared himself Pope, an action for which he was promptly defrocked, excommunicated, and placed under an order instructing Catholics to actively avoid him. This didn't stop Collin from acknowledging Tremblay's "mystical" ascension to the Throne of Peter in 1968, but that's quite another matter.

They eventually formed a joint community which went under the name of "The Apostles of Infinite Love". What could possibly go wrong with a name like that?

From 1978 to 2001, the movement was sued because of alleged abuses, including rape, extortion and sexual abuse.

Hmm, yeah. We might have guessed.

It is worth noting that the Quebec Public Prosecutor dropped everything after 34 years of investigation... but if anything carries overtones of "mystical Catholic sex cult", then "Apostles of Infinite Love" surely qualifies.
