It blends pretty well. I'm of the opinion that most religions are compatible anyways, of course, but its really just like adding more substance to an existing religion. It always bothered me that Catholicism didn't have much of an opinion on how to treat yourself or how to live in this world (its more about preparing for the next) so I just added on a little extra.
Doubtless it would bother the Opus Dei segment (actually, I'm positive it would) but I don't really care.
