Mérida, Mexico. February 22, 2011. This past January 31, the territorial directors, assistants for religious life, and the superiors of the formation and apostolate centers from the territories of Mexico and Monterrey had a series of meetings with Fr Gianfranco Ghirlanda, S.J., councilor of the papal delegate, at the Anáhuac University of Mayab in Mérida, in the Mexican state of Yucatán. On February 4, the superiors of the Atlanta, Brazil, Chile, New York, and Venezuela territories met with him in the same city.

The purpose of these meetings was to present the process for revising the constitutions, and to inform the superiors about the details of the territorial commission that will assist in the process.

During the sessions, Fr Ghirlanda explained the methodology that will be followed for revising the constitutions, how the members of the territories will be grouped together, how the discussion meetings will be held by communities, and the functions of the central commission and territorial commissions. Bishop Pedro Pablo Elizondo, LC, of the Cancún-Chetumal prelature, was also present in the meetings.

Following Fr Ghirlanda’s presentation, the participants were able to ask questions. After a Mass in the university auditorium and lunch, the meetings continued.

On February 1, the participants met again, this time in the Regnum Christi women’s section center in Mérida. They read over the documents that had been handed out for study, and then there was a time for questions and discussion. Mass and another session of questions by territories followed, each session led by its own territorial director.

In this same context and with the same objective, the territorial directors and superiors of formation and apostolate centers from Europe met in Rome on January 28 with the papal delegate, Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, and his councilors, Fr. Gianfranco Ghirlanda, S.J., and Fr Agostino Montan, C.S.I. Bishop Brian Farrell, LC, was also present at the final meetings.
