Reforms coming for Regnum Christi

Catholic World News - October 18, 2011

The Vatican is planning a thorough reform of Regnum Christi, the lay arm of the Legion of Christ.

Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, who is acting as the Pope’s delegate in supervising reform within the Legion, disclosed on October 17 that an investigation of Regnum Christi uncovered a series of concerns, which would require rewriting the group’s norms. Vatican officials expressed concern that the consecrated members of Regnum Christi were subject to strict discipline, but had no clear definition of their own rights within the Church.

Cardinal De Paolis said that “the issues regarding personal and community life that have emerged from this same visitation on an institutional level initially appear to be many and challenging.” He indicated, however, that Regnum Christi would continue its affiliation with the Legion of Christ.
