The Pontifical Delegate grants Fr. Alvaro Corcuera a sabbatical

P. Alvaro con el Card. Velasio de Paolis.

Fr. Alvaro Corcuera, LC, and Cardinal Velasio De Paolis both state in letters that the current General Director of the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi has requested a sabbatical to bolster his health and energy.  The Cardinal, who had been concerned about Fr. Alvaro’s health and had recommended a rest period, granted his request to be temporarily relieved of the faculties of the general director. 

From October 15 until the convoking of the General Chapter, which will take place at the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014, the current Vicar General, Fr. Sylvester Heereman, LC, will take on the functions of the position, though Fr. Alvaro will remain General Director of the Congregation.

The complete texts of the letters of the Cardinal and of Fr. Alvaro can be found here:
