Fr. Alvaro Corcuera´s address to the legionaries in Rome on October 11, 2012



Fr. Alvaro Corcuera, LC, and Cardinal Velasio De Paolis both stated 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 convocation 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 assume the functions of this position, though Fr. Alvaro will remain General Director of the Congregation.

After the inaugural mass of the Year of the Faith, the legionary communities in Rome got together for lunch at the Center of Higher Studies.  Fr. Alvaro Corcuera offered some words where he commented about this recent decision to request a sabbatical to the Papal Delegate. Fr. Sylvester Heereman, LC also addressed Fr. Alvaro thanking him for his continued service as General Director. The following video summarizes this event.
