.- The General Coordinator of the Christian Life Movement, Eduardo Regal, announced Tuesday that the ecclesial movement will place a new emphasis in its apostolic work on the promotion of life, dignity and the rights of the human person.

During the opening conference of the 3rd Plenary Assembly of the CLM which is taking place this week in Guayaquil, Ecuador, Regal explained that the founder of the CLM, Luis Fernando Figari, has decided to add this emphasis to the four other characteristics of the movement’s work, which are evangelical service to the young, solidarity with the poor, the evangelization of the culture and the evangelization of the family.

CLM leaders said the new emphasis is the result of the need to respond to the constant attacks against life in all of its stages in today’s world.

The 3rd Plenary Assembly of the CLM has brought together 250 delegates from 17 countries in the Ecuadoran city of Guayaquil.  Among the special guests is Cardinal Estanislao Karlic, Archbishop Emeritus of Parana, Argentina, and member of the drafting committee of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which was published in 1992.

The previous CLM assemblies took place in Rome in 1999 and in Lima in 2004. The Christian Life Movement is an international association of Catholics that was recognized by the Holy See in 1994.
