Rome, Italy. December 8, 2010. The general directorate of the Legionaries of Christ has communicated the creation of the central committee for the revision of the constitutions. By disposition of the pontifical delegate, Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, who will preside over the commission, the committee will be made up of six priests, including two of his personal advisors (Fr Gianfranco Ghirlanda, SJ and Fr Agostino Montan, CSI) and four Legionary priests (Fr Roberto Aspe Hinojosa, LC, Fr Anthony Bannon, LC, Fr José García Sentandreu, LC, and Fr Gabriel Sotres, LC).

According to the Holy See’s instructions (cf. Decree of July 9, no. 9), the pontifical delegate and the central commission will initiate and guide the work of revising the fundamental normative text that will govern the life of the congregation. This process, which will involve all Legionaries of Christ, will last for several years. It will conclude with the celebration of an extraordinary general chapter that will examine the proposed modifications and present them to the Holy See for approval.

In the upcoming weeks, the central commission will present its work methodology and the first thematic texts for individual and community reflection in the congregation.

We invite our readers to keep the work of revising the Legion of Christ’s constitutions in their prayers.
