Vatican City, May 31, 2013 / 11:04 am
The papal delegate overseeing the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christ met with Pope Francis on Monday to discuss the progress that has been made in reforming the two religious bodies.
During their 45-minute meeting, Cardinal Velasio De Paolis said, he and the Pope discussed the drafting of a new constitution for the Legion of Christ, which will be presented at the order's General Chapter in early 2014.
They also discussed the general statutes that govern Regnum Christi and its consecrated and lay members. New leaders of both congregations will be elected at the General Chapter.
Cardinal De Paolis described Regnum Christ to the Holy Father as "a precious reality that enriches and complements the work of the Legion."
