October 5, 2010. Rome, Italy. Archbishop Velasio De Paolis, CS, the papal delegate for the congregation of the Legionaries of Christ, recently announced the names of the four personal councilors who will help him in the task Pope Benedict XVI assigned to him. Vatican Radio and the Vatican Information Service have published the names:

• Bishop Brian Farrell, LC, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
• Fr Gianfranco Ghirlanda, SI, ex-rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
• Msgr Mario Marchesi, vicar general of the diocese of Cremona, Italy.
• Fr Agostino Montan, CSI, director of the office for consecrated life of the diocese of Rome and vice-deacon of the theology faculty of the Pontifical Lateran University.

In addition, as the Holy See’s informative sources note, Archbishop Ricardo Blázquez, the archbishop of Valladolid, Spain, will be the apostolic visitator to the consecrated members of the Regnum Christi Movement. His work will be carried out under the pontifical delegate’s authority, according to the Holy See´s indications.

All of these positions were mentioned in numbers 6 and 10 of the July 9, 2010 decree from the Secretary of State of the Holy See, which provided further details about the pontifical delegate’s task.

We invite our readers to pray for the councilors and the visitator, and we thank God and the Holy Father for their support.
