Christian Life Movement begins 3rd plenary assembly in Ecuador

.- Some 250 delegates from 17 countries are participating in the 3rd Plenary Assembly of the Christian Life Movement, which is taking place December 1-8 in the Ecuadoran city of Guayaquil.  Others at the assembly include: Cardinal Estanislao Karlic, Archbishop Emeritus of Parana in Argentina; Founder of the CLM, Luis Fernando Figari, and the CLM General Coordinator, Eduardo Regal.

Cardinal Karlic was named by Pope John Paul II as a member of the drafting committee of the Catechism of the Catholic Church that was published in 1992, and he will be the main the celebrant at the opening Mass of the assembly.

In a message prepared for the meeting, Eduardo Regal recalled the words Fernando Figari addressed to Pope Benedict XVI on Pentecost at the conclusion of the Pope’s meeting with ecclesial movements:  “The Lord Jesus knocks on our door and invites the men and women of today to freely respond.” 

Regal urged the members of the CLM to offer their prayers for the success of the assembly.  “We commend our 3rd Plenary Assembly to the sweet intercession of our Mother Holy Mary, the Star of the New Evangelization,” he said.

The Christian Life Movement is an ecclesial movement with its own spirituality and style within the communion of the Church. It is an International Association of the Faithful of Pontifical Right recognized by the Holy See in 1994.

The CLM is present on all five continents, with most of its activity centered in Peru, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, the United States, Canada, Italy, England, Spain, Mexico, Australia, Angola and the Philippines.
