Regaining Trust
Fr. Benjamin Clariond LC is interviewed on the EWTN program Vaticano

Fr. Benjamin Clariond on Vaticano report

A recent “Vaticano” report broadcast on the EWTN network featured Fr. Benjamin Clariond LC discussing the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi reform process.

The report gave an overview of our history and renewal, and Fr. Benjamin clarified how the appointment of Fr. Gianfranco Ghirlanda as consultant to the Legion of Christ will help in that process.

“He will participate in those general council meetings which he considers important to participate,” said Fr. Benjamin.

He said Fr. Ghirlanda will also help with the “daunting challenge” of finding a canonical structure for the whole of Regnum Christi, and the relationship between all the vocations within the movement.

Fr. Benjamin stressed the most important issue facing the Legion is regaining trust.  He said the Legion and Regnum Christi have been undergoing a process of “soul searching,” attempting to clarify our charism and renew our constitutions.

“There are people who don’t trust us to follow through on the reforms we have already started, and that’s only normal and they have the right to do that,” said Fr. Benjamin. “I would ask them also to give us a chance.  We really want to do things right.  And the presence of the assistant in Fr. Ghirlanda is also helpful because he will help us avoid pitfalls along the way of the implementation.”
