Female leader leaves Regnum Christi

Catholic World News - February 14, 2012

The head of a group of women associated with the Legion of Christ has announced her resignation.

Malen Oriol, the leader of about 600 “consecrated women” in Regnum Christi who led lives of celibacy and service to the Legion’s efforts, has announced that she is stepping down from her post, which also involved being an assistant to the director of the Legion of Christ.

Oriol revealed that many of the “consecrated women” of Regnum Christi are approaching their local bishops, looking for ways to live out their vocation apart from the troubled religious order.
