.- Pope Benedict received Fr. Alvaro Corcuera, the Director General of the Legionaries of Christ, in a private audience this morning, reports the Vatican Press office.

A statement posted on the Legion's website said that during the meeting, the Pope assured Fr. Corcuera of his prayers and “extended his greeting"  and apostolic blessing to all members of the Legion and Regnum Christi.

The reunion comes in wake of a May 1 communiqué which was released after the Pope met with members of the Legion's apostolic visitation. The communiqué announced a series of measures to be taken such as the appointment of a pontifical delegate and an apostolic visitation of the consecrated members of Regnum Christi.

The Vatican has not yet appointed a pontifical delegate to the Legion.
