The first, is to redefine the Legion’s statues, which will maintaining the core of the “militia Christi”, on which the Order is based, but put an end to the sense of ‘efficiency’ at any cost.

The second objective is to redefine the secrecy within the order. The actions of the superior of the Legion should not be kept secret.

The final objective is to encourage Legionaries to maintain their enthusiasm and their faith at the center of their formation.

The Vatican underlines that the pope’s five investigators have found great collaboration and have been welcomed sincerely. It also says, that aside from its founder’s deplorable actions, the Legion is made up of a great number of religious who live exemplary, honest lives and many who have given their lives to God in a sincere manner.

The Legion has said it’s willing to follow any guidance from the Vatican.
