'Commissioner' to assume leadership for Legionaries?

Catholic World News - April 13, 2010

Vatican-watcher John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter writes that many informed sources expect the appointment of a "commissioner" to supervise the activities of the Legion of Christ.

After the conclusion of an apostolic visitation, the Legionaries are awaiting a Vatican decision about the future of the order. A "commissioner," Allen observes, "would, in effect, amount to a compromise between total suppression of the Legionaries, as some of the order’s fiercest critics have suggested, and a papal 'certificate of good conduct,' as some of its Vatican backers had initially hoped."
