The Holy See’s letter approving the Constitutions
ITALY | WHO WE ARE | NEWS

 [Translated from the original Italian]


Attachment 2 of Fr. Eduardo Robles Gil´s letter announcing the approval of the Constitutions.

Prot. n. R. 111-1/2014

Reverend Director

This is a response to your letter dated October 9, 2014, in which, after following the indications that this Dicastery made, you resubmitted the constitutional text including those changes.

This Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, after a careful study, approves the Constitutions of the “Legionaries of Christ” as represented by this text, with these exceptions:

  • The indications contained in numbers 1,2o; 16; 112 and 130 § 2 have not been approved since they refer to the Regnum Christi Movement, whose juridical nature has yet to be defined;
  • Article 198 § 2 has been approved, but with the following formulation: “The territorial administrator should be a priest, a member of the Institute, and at least thirty years old”, eliminating the text within brackets. 

I deeply hope that the observance of the Constitutions will be a precious help for the ‘Legionaries of Christ’ in carrying out their apostolic endeavors, in being faithful to their charism.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary.
