Vatican City, March 15, 2008. This morning, Pope Benedict XVI
received Father Álvaro Corcuera, LC, in a private audience.
Father Álvaro Corcuera is the general director of the congregation
of the Legionaries of Christ and of the Regnum Christi apostolic movement.
In this meeting, Father Corcuera told the
Holy Father that the Legionaries and Regnum Christi members wanted
to confirm their unconditional loyalty to the Pope at the
start of this new stage in their history after the
death of their founder, who passed away this past January 30.

Holy Father, with fatherly kindness, assured Father Corcuera that he
continues closely accompanying the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi
with his prayers. He then granted all of its members
his apostolic blessing, especially the thousands of young people and
families who will participate in evangelization missions across the
world during Holy Week.
