The purpose of the process is to have an updated edition of the Statutes, approved by the Holy See so as to express, safeguard, and promote the charism of Regnum Christi.
The life, spirituality and mission of the lay members of the Movement are explained in a part of the Statutes of Regnum Christi, which were approved by the Holy See and remain in force. On Pentecost of 2016, a convention of lay members will draft a proposed revision of the part of the statutes that has to do with the lay members. This proposal will be submitted to the Holy See for its approval. This process will give you the opportunity to contribute in preparing this proposal, “as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10)
