[Translated from the original Italian]

To my venerable brother, Cardinal Velasio de Paolis,

At the end of your period of service as Delegate for the Congregation of the Legionaries of Christ, which my beloved predecessor entrusted to you on June 16, 2010, I would like to express my sentiments of heartfelt affection and sincere appreciation.

You, with the help of four councilors, have carried out the challenging task.  You walked hand in hand with the government of the Institute in the first stretch of the journey of renewal that has been requested.  You made sure to be close to the religious, particularly in the difficult moments of the drafting of the new Constitutions and of the preparation of the extraordinary General Chapter, which you presided.

I assure you of my prayers to the Lord so that he will reward you with abundant blessings for the work you have carried out.  I also entrust you to the safe-keeping of the Virgin Mary and I send my heartfelt Apostolic Blessing.

Sent from the Vatican on April 7, 2014
