Rome, February 22, 2011. The papal delegate for the Legionaries of Christ, Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, C.S., has created a commission for the study and revision of the congregation’s financial situation, as announced in his October 19, 2010 letter.

The commission will be led by Archbishop Domenico Calcagno, secretary of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See, and will also include: Msgr. Mario Marchesi, one of the papal delegate’s four councilors; Dr. Rosino Antonio Morelli, who works with the Prefecture for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See; Fr. Eduardo Vigneaux, LC, general administrator of the Legion of Christ; and Fr Alberto Simán, LC, who works in the general secretariat of the Legion of Christ.

The commission will study the administrative area of the congregation so as to give definitive answers to the questions and concerns that have been raised, and to see what improvements may be necessary.

This past January 4, the papal delegate and his councilors and Archbishop Calcagno received a detailed presentation on the financial information of the congregation’s works and territories, the patrimonial and administrative situation, the use of available funds according to the congregation’s purpose at the service of the Church and men, the corporative and societal organization, the debts incurred mainly by some educational institutions to finance their establishment and development, and the structure of the operative management and services that have been implemented in recent years under the name of Integer.

The commission has a consultative function and will report to the papal delegate and the general director with their respective councilors. The commission will define its own work program and a calendar to complete its task.

When Fr Alvaro Corcuera, LC, told the Legionaries about this new step taken under the guidance of the papal delegate, he expressed the hope that in the administrative field as well, “we may meet the Legion of Christ’s and Regnum Christi’s current challenges with professionalism and a Gospel spirit.”
